Nominate your favorite restaurant!

Below is the official news release for nominating your favorite Kansas restaurant. The very important thing is to send in background information about the restaurant. If you don't wish to do the research print this out (or print out a news release) and send it to the restaurant. Tell them you want to make sure they are noticed!

The Kansas Sampler Foundation announced that nominations are now being accepted through March 31 for the 8 Wonders of Kansas Cuisine.

The restaurant must be 10 years or older with intent to stay open for many years. Only non-franchise restaurants that are open regularly are eligible. Food items produced in Kansas and available to the public may also be nominated. Restaurants or food items must be iconic, legendary, or have some unique claim to fame.

All nominations will be listed on the website but those that include background, history, and details will receive the greatest consideration to be selected as one of the 24 finalists.

Director Marci Penner said, "There are so many excellent restaurants in this state. It is very important that as much information as possible be included in the nominations, including address, phone number, and web site but especially history."

Cuisine nominations may be submitted at or e-mailed to

The 24 finalists will be announced April 23 when voting will begin.

We have some very iconic restaurants in the state and knowing about them helps the world "Get Kansas!"
