This Leawood structure was built in 1998 to house "cowboy steakhouse" Yahooz -- at the height of the PB&J restaurant chain's glory days. When business started flagging a decade later, the owners decided to revive another of its restaurant concepts, the Coyote Grill
, in the venue. The new Coyote Grill opened in the spring of 2009 and was closed by that autumn
The restaurant, designed in a handsome Western motif, still sits empty. In this economy, perhaps Town Center Plaza should shake off its hoity-toity image and encourage a low-cost western-style steakhouse to move into the space. Maybe a Golden Corral?
