Southern Cuisine is the oldest and most developed of all regional American cooking styles. Its culinary tradition is based on seasonal freshness, ethnic diversity, simply prepared, highly flavored food. For these reasons, it has become one of America’s favorite ways to dine.  At Magnolia’s, we honor the southern tradition in Kansas City by creating menus that combine the purest flavors, the freshest ingredients and the highest quality herbs and spices with a Southern dash of culinary passion.

 

We are mindful that you can choose to patronize a variety of other establishments. When you entrust your dining experience to Magnolia’s, you can expect to be pleased. Our desire is to consistently exceed your expectations and make you feel like a welcome guest in our home. We are grateful for the opportunity to share this celebration of food and life.

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Executive Chef Shanita McAfee-Bryant is the winner of Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen and in 2012 opened Magnolia’s Southern Cuisine Restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri. Shanita’s passion for food started with the homemade crust she made for an apple pie at the age of 13.  Just four years later with a new baby in tow she trained at The Culinary Institute at Johnson County Community College. She infuses every dish on Magnolia’s menu with her extensive knowledge and creative flair.

Magnolia’s has been nominated for Best Small Business in Kansas City by the KC Chamber of Commerce, Best Brunch Spot by KC Magazine, Top 12 Restaurants in 2012 by KC magazine and many other honors throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area.
