Several brand-new restaurants opened throughout the metro in September, peppering the area with everything from quesabirria to deli sandwiches designed by chef Howard Hanna.
Starting in the Crossroads, King G Bar & Deli opened at 18th and Locust, offering deli sandwiches, fresh Bavarian-style pretzels and charcuterie boards along with two separate late-night bars. Just a mile away, Café Corazón opened its second Mexican-inspired coffee shop at 110 Southwest Blvd.
Down in Waldo, Andy’s Frozen Custard opened its newest location at 79th and Wornall. Just a few miles to the Southwest, Taqueria La Nueva began serving al pastor tacos and quesabirria, along with a whole lot more, at 125th and Antioch in Overland Park. Finally, Dior Restaurant opened on 151st Street in Overland Park, offering American favorites like fried catfish and big cuts of steak in its from-scratch kitchen.
October will be a big month for openings; over the next few days, diners can expect three new restaurants and bars to open between the Riverfront and Westport, including Electric Park Garden Bar at the J. Rieger Distillery, Chewology in Westport and Jill Cockson’s newest bar, Chartreuse Saloon, in the Crossroads.
