KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City’s Restaurant Week is being hailed a success, at least by one of the restaurants who participated.

A manager at Fogo de Chão on the Plaza said their dining room has been packed every night — an increase of 26 percent over last year.

He said, in fact, the restaurant has been booked since mid-week for this weekend.

On Saturday, the restaurant stayed open until 1 a.m. to squeeze in the nearly 1,000 reservations.

“The great exposure to all the people who have never been here before, the fact that 10 percent of the proceeds go to Harvesters — it feels good to be helping the community as well,” said Vanderlei Melchior of Fogo de Chão.

Restaurant Week ends Sunday.
