Zona Rosa finally has a burger joint. Juicy's Burgers and Spirits will open in March in the former Tomfooleries space at 8680 N.W. Prairie View Road. The upscale burger place is the brainchild of Mike Howell. His last venture
was 77 South, the dining room and lounge that brought disco back to Leawood before it closed in 2012.
Juicy's will also have live entertainment five nights a week and will be open until 3 a.m. The buns will be baked from scratch, and the ketchup and mustard will be housemade. The restaurant is hiring (ask for Howell at the Juicy's space between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday).
