Harvey House In Kc

Recommended Posts

For those who are interested Union Station opened a "Harvey House Diner", which, according to the article in the Post Dispatch, "pays homage to the Harvey House restaurants that operated in many train stations, in

cluding the one in KC". Supposedly looks a lot like the original diner and has some of the same culinary delights. The only disappointment was that "the waitresses were not wearing the crisp black and white uniforms of the "Harvey Girls" who brightened the first restaurants. Tsingtao Kip

I saw that article but didn't read it for some reason. Another reason besides the BBQ to visit K.C. The Starz Western channel recently showed the movie "Harvey Girls" starring Judy Garland and the "Murder She Wrote" chick (Angela Lansbury?) as a soft-hearted hooker. I suffered through it but wouldn't do it again because it's soooooo hokey........Bliss

I don't remember Harvey House in my travels. What was their geographic area? What was the era that they were in their prime? Thanks for educating a fellow traveler...
