Kansas City restaurant openings and closings: July 2021

Kansas City restaurant openings and closings: July 2021

Third Street Social Pastrami

Head to Third Street Social's brand-new location on the South Plaza this month.

It's the dog days of summer, and with that, Kansas City has seen some new spots pop up. Meta Coffee Roasting Co. finally has its own brick-and-mortar shop for its single-origin coffees, and Third Street Social added a second – and not to mention, massive – location in South Plaza. 

And as it goes, the area had to say goodbye to at least one old favorite: Smokin' Joe's BBQ in Olathe, Kansas. In a Facebook post, owner Rhonda Lorenz shared thanks for the community's support. 

Here's what opened, closed and what's coming down the pipeline this month in Kansas City.
