The team behind BRGR Kitchen + Bar is busy working on a second concept for the Corinth Square shopping center in Prairie Village.
Michelle Renner of The Kansas City Business Journal reports that the newly named Bread & Butter Concepts LLC (formerly TEXAS Restaurants LLC) will be opening Urban Table in July. The new restaurant at 4000 W. 83rd St. (adjacent to the Salty Iguana) will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and feature a wine bar with an "urban market feel."
Alan Gaylin and Glynn and Jean Roberts opened BRGR (4038 W. 83rd St.), recently voted best new restaurant by Pitch readers, last year. The burger joint celebrated its official first anniversary on March 10 by adding a special chocolate burger and funnel-cake fries to the menu. While that special has passed, BRGR offers BRGR Mondays, where you can get four of their signature burgers and fries for $20 on to-go orders between 4 and 6 p.m.
While the concept for Urban Table sounds like a bit of a work in progress, BRGR has plenty of fans at Fat City. Joe Tone was bowled over by the truffle tater tots; once Charles Ferruzza got past walking into the ladies' room, he found the burgers to be big and juicy.
And the early success of Tavern in the Village (the dinner wait has easily been an hour on the weekends), which opened last month in the Prairie Village shopping center at 3901 Prairie Lane, suggests that people are hungry for more dining-out options in Prairie Village.
