The former Blue Moose Mountain Grill space at 5317 W. 151st St. won't stay empty for long. Paddy O'Quigley's Bar & Grille is busy renovating the dining room and plans to open in May, only a month after local restaurant group KC Hopps shuttered its location in Leawood.
The "Irish Sports Zone" serves pub fare such as burgers, wings and nachos. The enormous menu also includes fish and chips, a "Paddy melt," and the Regal Philbin (a smoked-brisket sandwich with onions, peppers, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce).
Paddy O'Quigley's has five locations -- the restaurant at 151st and Nall will be the sixth -- and has been rapidly expanding since it was founded in 1990. A new restaurant in North Kansas City opened in March at 6312 N. Chatham. In addition to catering to sports fans, the pub offers regular trivia and karaoke nights.
Residents of south Johnson County will be glad to see the patio at 151st and Nall up and running in time for the spring and summer months. The huge outdoor patio is one of the best in Leawood. If you're looking for work, the new location is hiring.
