"I'm sad to see [Debbie] go, but I'm excited to take over and do some cool things here," Eans said. "It's an honor to have this position."
Eans was most recently the executive chef for Blanc Burgers + Bottles. He began working at the American as a sous chef in November 2011.
Not being a student of apiology, I didn't know there was a difference between a French bee and a honeybee that buzzes around Lenexa (and maybe there isn't). But Tracy Torres, the proprietor of the three-week-old French Bee Bakery, at 404 East Street in downtown Parkville, says France's emperor Napoleon had a bee - a Gallic one, presumably - embroidered on his clothing. "It was a symbol of rejuvenation," says Torres, who has taken several career paths in her life but feels that her new business is the culmination of a dream.
She started the French Bee as a catering operation, making and delivering box lunches for corporate clients. When the gray building at 404 East Street - a former hair salon - became available for rent, Torres leased the little house, creating a cozy space for drinking coffee (her own Roasterie blend) and eating freshly baked scones or having a light lunch. There are only a few tables in the buttermilk-colored dining room, and the venue fills up pretty quickly on Saturday mornings. The second front room is reserved for her glass pastry case, featuring scones (pear pecan, ham and cheese, maple bacon date, chocolate raspberry), fluffy squares of old-fashioned cinnamon-yogurt coffee cake, flaky cinnamon swirls, cookies, and three kinds of delicious quiche (yesterday's selection included a first-rate artichoke and sun-dried tomato) in a buttery crust - no lard ever used.
I treat sandwiches as my refuge from fast food. When I'm somewhere where I don't know what to eat, I seek comfort with meals made with bread, a hoagie roll or a tortilla wrap. But I'm not always looking simply for sustenance. I'm also seeking out the city's best sandwiches. The Pitch is located at 1701 Main, and I've got a full tank of gas and an hour to spare - what sandwich is worth a drive to seek out?
