"Yoki" translates roughly to "cheerful" in Japanese, and the shop is aiming to reflect that with its variety of Japanese-inspired "housewares, kitchenware, dishes & ceramics, stationary and home office items, health and beauty products, gifts, novelties, and seasonal items," according to a release.
Talented young chef Grant Klover, a recent graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, has already bid adieu to two-month-old bakery and bistro Baked in Kansas City (reviewed this week in The Pitch) after, he says, "continual disagreements" with the restaurant's owner, Frank Sebree.
Klover, who left his post last Friday, says he has been interviewing with three high-profile local restaurants. Executive chef Liz Huffman continues to oversee operations at the venue as well as the kitchen at the Majestic Steakhouse.
Frank Sebree tells The Pitch: "Grant was a nice guy. We wish him the best of luck."
Sebree says he has just hired chef Max Sanchez from the Michael Smith and Extra Virgin restaurants to oversee the Baked in Kansas City kitchen during the lunch hours.
"He's very talented and will be working closely with Liz Huffman on our lunch menu."
"If the reports of Fred Phelps' declining health are accurate, then his family and friends are certainly saying their good-byes and preparing to mourn his loss," said Sandra Meade, chairwoman of Equality Kansas. "We ask that everyone understand the solemnity of the occasion, and honor the right of his family and friends to remember and mourn his loss in private without interruption or unseemly celebration."
To outright celebrate Phelps' imminent death does seem a bit vulgar. It would also give him more credit and attention than he deserves. But it's worth noting that Fred Phelps is a world-class piece of shit, and the world will be better without him living in it.
