No, Muddy’s is not going to reopen in midtown



A Fat City reader wrote to ask: “I read, in the Kansas City Star, that Muddy’s at 318 E. 51st Street was going to be purchased by a couple of employees. But I’ve looked in the window, and everything in the space is gone. The place is completely empty. If employees were buying the business, wouldn’t there be at least a coffee cup left?”

Or so you might think. I had wondered the same thing, so I called Diane Burnette — who opened the coffeehouse 16 years ago with her husband, Oliver Burnette — to get the answer. And here it is: The deal’s off.  Muddy’s is but a fragrant, coffee-scented memory.
