I'm rethinking my decision to live in KC honestly.
Why is that?
If ultra progressive restaurants are 5 years too soon in KC, what the heck am I doing here?




just a play on taking their facebook post too seriously :)

Pizza Manifesto didn't last long.

Rumor is Chipotle may open a pizza concept store.

I walked by and saw that yesterday. Too bad, they had an interesting concept, food was really pretty good if you ordered right. If you went in just for pepperoni and mozzarella, you were going to be disappointed. But if you got a mix of fontina, mozz, spinach, chicken, artichoke hearts, diced ham, it was delicious! Hopefully we don't have to wait very long to see the next iteration....

In other news, Summit Grill Waldo opens tonight. We will be checking this out for sure and will report back. I like the one in Lee's Summit, we occasionally go with my parents when we're out in the 'burbs.

sounds like this space is way too small for one of those stores. Would need a huge buildout.

Chipotle’s Pizzeria Locale coming to Waldo
Pizzeria Locale is a partnership between Chipotle and Colorado restaurateurs Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson. The first area restaurant is scheduled to open this summer at 505 W. 75th St., next to a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Waldo. It will have about 15 to 20 employees. Pizza Manifesto operated in the space for a short stint in 2014.

Interesting new apartment development in Waldo by El Dorado (not sure if it has already been mentioned). Believe it is taking over a surface parking lot, so, good news for the growing neighborhood.

it's reminiscent of low density 1950s urban apartment infill, to me, where there's a bit of a setback, with (probably) off street surface parking to the side or back, but it's not entirely insulting to a walkable sub-urban type neighborhood.

setbacks are entirely a zoning issue. they probably didn't get the lots rezoned.

Glad that they're replacing a surface lot, but that's really poor. Disappointing lack of semi-private outdoor space. No meaningful interaction with the street.
