The first of several planned area eateries from Red Door Restaurants, a newly formed restaurant group that also counts Gary Zancanelli and Jason Gleaton among its partners, will open in Leawood's Camelot Court at 11851 Roe. The Red Door Grill is expected to open in mid-May.
The menu hasn't been announced, but the Red Door Grill has a showpiece wood-fired grill which should mean flatbreads and pizzas in Leawood's future. Their Twitter account also makes mention of tapping the Local Pig for the sausages in the restaurant. Gold, a James Beard Award winner and competitor on Top Chef: Masters, will oversee the menu design and kitchen staff. Prior to the American, she owned and operated 40 Sardines with Michael Smith at 11942 Roe, where the last tenant, WestChase Grille , recently closed.
