To our wonderful Extra Virgin guests

Chef Michael Smith, Nancy Smith and the entire Extra Virgin Team are excited to welcome you back to our dining room in the Crossroads!

Our menu features some of Chef Michael’s favorite dishes and a few new ones we think you’ll love.

And cocktails! The past few months have inspired our team to create delicious drinks.

Of course, expect extraordinary bottles of wine from our Wine Spectator award-winning list.

And our popular weekly events are back: Monday-Friday Happy Hour (4-6 p.m.), Monday Pizza Night, Happy Hour drinks open until close Tuesday, Wednesday Service Industry Night (6 p.m.-close) and Thursday Rosé All Day with half-price bottles featuring Nancy’s picks.

Above all else, it’s essential that we provide you with a great experience in an environment that is safe and in accordance with CDC protocols and Kansas City guidelines.

Because of modified seating in our dining room and on our patio to comply with Kansas City restrictions, no walk-ins will be accepted right now.

Reservations must be made on Tock or by calling 816-842-2205.

Update on masks: Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adhered to every Kansas City health requirement including separating tables, stringent cleaning and having our team wear masks. And now, effective today, June 29, Mayor Quinton Lucas is requiring masks for everyone while out in public and in establishments including restaurants. Those establishments not in compliance may be fined.

Therefore, we are asking our diners to wear face coverings when entering, being seated and while ordering. Of course, masks can be removed to enjoy your beverages and dinner. We’ll do our very best to make your experience at Extra Virgin as special as ever, despite the temporary changes. We appreciate your cooperation during this time. See this link for more details, including exemptions.

Reservations are requested through 816-842-2205 or Or consider carryout for the Extra Virgin Experience at home; our tapas-style menu is ideal for take-out. We’re looking forward to seeing you — and for now will picture your smile behind your mask.


Dine in only. Not valid on carryout. Enjoy lower priced tapas and $2 off all cocktails & wines by the glass. Tuesdays, enjoy happy hour pricing on drinks all day!

Extra Virgin is a…




…His mother, a restaurant manager, familiarized him with the daily grind of the kitchen — from peeling potatoes and shrimp to cleaning bathrooms and washing dishes — as the family moved from town to town after Michael’s birth in Gettysburg, South Dakota. After earning a degree in Psychology at the University of Southern Colorado, Michael began work at Chateau Pyrenees, a French restaurant in Denver, where he studied under Jean-Pierre Lelievre and, later Georges Mavrothalassitis. In 1985, he traveled to the South of France to cook and while in Nice and Cassis he discovered the traditional European approach of artisinal products made from the freshest local ingredients. Fueled by this resonating impression, Michael returned to Chicago in 1987 to work as Sous Chef at Charlie Trotter’s. Not satisfied with his European training, he returned to Nice, France in 1989 to be the Executive Chef at L’Albion. Upon his return to Chicago in 1991, he worked as Co-Chef at Carlos’ in Highland Park and then Executive Chef at Gordon until 1994.
