It's not news, by this point, that restaurateur Hope Loehr's barbecue joint Adam's Rib closed last week -- six months and two days after it opened -- just as we named her Best Barbecue: South in The Pitch's annual Best of Kansas City issue. It was a bittersweet moment for Loehr to read the tribute to her Overland Park restaurant after she decided to shut the doors for good.

"It was heartbreaking," Loehr tells me. "But we just couldn't hang on any longer. We had a possible investor, but we couldn't negotiate quickly enough to keep the business open."

She's not sure what her next step will be. "I need to find a new job in the restaurant business," says Loehr, who previously worked as a manager for the New Theatre Restaurant and Ameristar Casino. "If you hear of anything, call me."
