Chaz on the Plaza Culinary Team

Chaz Culinary Team -

The Chaz culinary staff is lead by Executive Chef Charles d'Ablaing and Sous Chef Ian Denney. Chef d'Ablaing's cooking style incorporates regional bounty and sensibilities, his southern roots, and ethnic influences. The chef's emphasis on quality, locally sourced ingredients, proper seasoning and precise cooking technique is reflected in a concise, yet diverse variety of appetizers, salads, soups, entrees and desserts. Signature items include fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, diver caught scallops, and a hand-cut, fork-tender beef tenderloin steak that advances the Midwest's beef reputation. "Our wet-aged prime beef tenderloin is the best steak in Kansas City," says Chef d'Ablaing. The popular chef was featured at the James Beard House in 2009 and has been prominent in local charitable events and competitions, including Chef's Classic Knockout Bout to benefit St. Paul Catholic School in which he won on a split decision and the 2013 American Royal Grapes & Steaks competition that he also won.

A Kansas City Feast for the Senses -

The Raphael Hotel's signature restaurant has long been established as one of Kansas City's most romantic fine dining restaurant sites. Since its rebirth in 2009, Chaz on the Plaza is even more so. As a local magazine editor noted, "The restaurant has always been romantic. Now it's sexy too."

The aromas and music wafting through the air are enhanced by unexpected visual delights, including antiqued bronzed mirrors and polished granite surfaces along the bar and windows, which expand the room and offer patrons intriguing views of the Plaza in reflected angles. The views become more enchanting during the holiday season beginning with Thanksgiving night, when Kansas City's famed Country Club Plaza lights add shimmer and glow to the surrounding streetscape.
