Beulah’s Smokehouse Food Festival

Fall is in the air and football is on the field, so we are stoked to launch a brand new food festival today at Z Bar and The Deli Restaurant… Beulah’s Smokehouse.
Join us now through November as we celebrate authentic Kansas City Barbecue.  In 2003 Dante’s Restaurants spent over a year developing from scratch recipes for one of our former concepts Beulah’s Bar-B-Cue & bar bleu (which is now evolved to simply bar bleu).  These recipes for dry-rubs, sauce, side dishes, chili and the smoking techniques are all developed in-house and 100% Dante’s fresh from scratch… nothing borrowed from a cookbook here.
Our festival will focus on pork and beef that are locally sourced, butchered and smoked low and slow right here in-house using hickory wood.  Large plates, small plates, sandwiches and more.
What would barbecue be without it’s perfect pairing partner… whiskey!?!?  Belly up to our pop-up Beulah’s Whiskey Bar for some strong drink!  Enjoy a classic cocktail or bourbon neat with our featured specialty drink menu created to perfectly pair with our authentic Kansas City style smoked meats!
