If only the old Board of Trade a block away was still standing(after more than half a century still a surface lot).. Its death really launched the historic preservation movement in KC. I hope they retain the Savoy name for both the hotel and restaurant so they can still claim a restaurant over a century old.
i doubt the hotel name will carry forward (based on other 21c properties), but it absolutely makes sense for the restaurant to be called the savoy grill.
