Default Dead Restaurant List for March 2014



  • The short-lived Pacific Buffet offered a little bit of almost every style of cuisine, before turning off the steam tables for good.



As we bid adieu to the month of March, we also say a sorrowful sayonara to a rather significant number of restaurants in the metro that closed their doors during the month (or a few weeks prior); some had been longtime survivors, like Crown Center's Kabuki Japanese Restaurant - it closed in January after 28 years - and others, like the Pacific Buffet at 8725 Metcalf lasted less a year (its predecessor in the same location, Royal Buffet, barely made it to five months).

Last rites were also administered, sadly, to: Esther's African Cuisine in Lenexa; Marv's Original Delicatessen in Leawood; Guadalajara Cafe in Watts Mill Plaza on Kansas City's south side; Diego's Bar & Grill in Gladstone (it lasted about three months); Sugo's Spaghetteria in Overland Park; Interno Restaurant in downtown Lawrence; and Wil Jenny's Tables & Tap in south Johnson County. One of the fastest open-and-shut cases was restaurateur Scott Welsch's second attempt at making a go of his popular Orange Box luncheonette at 240 Linwood (in a venue that has had so many tenants that its impossible to keep them all straight); it was over in two months.

A longtime tenant on the Country Club Plaza, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, ended its 17-year-run in March, citing the conclusion of its lease.

Ruth's Chris is the only shocker here.

Wow, I didn't know. I just took the family their last month and it was great as always. They were always pretty busy (not cap grille busy) so not sure why

I'm not sure why Pacific Buffet didn't get more business. Was affordable and the food was really good, great selection, frequently changed, good sushi...dunno, we frequented it a lot and it was never that busy.
