  • The Houlihan's French onion soup, a popular menu item since 1972, will be served in a new building in Overland Park this summer.

This summer, the Houlihan's Restaurant across from Oak Park Mall will be closed so that a new prototype version of the restaurant - the chain concept was created by Joe Gilbert and Paul Robinson on the Country Club Plaza in 1972 - can be opened on the mall property, on land formerly occupied by the T.G.I. Friday's restaurant. According to Amber Westerson with CBL & Associaties Properties Inc. - the management company for Oak Park Mall - the Friday's building will be razed so that a new Houlihan's can be built, tentatively scheduled to open in August.

Westerson says the prototype Houlihan's concept features a smaller-footprint building than past designs as well as a display kitchen, original artwork and an outdoor patio. The original location at 11600 West 95th Street will remain in business until the new one is ready to open.
