Leawood advances plan for new Town Center steakhouse next to existing Hereford House

After months of discussion over parking with owners of a nearby Hereford House, the Leawood Planning Commission unanimously approved the final plan for a new high-end steakhouse at Town Center Plaza.

After months of debating with city staff and the owners of another local restaurant, a new unnamed “top drawer” steakhouse is one step closer to making its debut at Town Center Plaza in Leawood.

On Tuesday, the Leawood Planning Commission unanimously voted to approve the final plan for the 12,681-square-foot restaurant to be added to a site on the north side of the shopping center, east of Nall Avenue and just south of 117th Street.
