Golden Ox will open a Johnson County outpost…again
- Jaimie Warren
- There’s only one Golden Ox: the 64-year-old original in the West Bottoms.
Ten years ago, before veteran restaurateurs Steve Greer and Bill Teel had purchased the iconic Golden Ox in the West Bottoms (1600 Genessee, 816-842-2866), the venue’s then-owner, Jerry Rauschelbach, opened a short-lived outpost of Kansas City’s oldest steakhouse in the vacant Houston’s location at 95th Street and Metcalf. The Pitch reviewed the new restaurant at the time and found it lacking. It wasn’t around very long.
But an opportunity for Teel and Greer to take over an all-but-abandoned dining room in the Clarion Hotel at 7000 West 108th Street in Overland Park – last occupied by the ill-fated Bistro La Scala – has returned an abbreviated version of the Golden Ox to Johnson County.
