Now open: Blanc Burgers & Bottles, Leawood

Blanc Burgers & Bottles has officially joined the ranks of its Midtown neighbors Room 39 and Blue Koi and opened a second location in Johnson County. Like the other two, it has chosen Mission Farms in Leawood to call home.

I stopped by the new location at 10583 Mission right before it opened for its second day of business. Owner Ernesto Peralta was listening to a staff pep talk about how busy the restaurant had been the night before — when there was still a wait for tables at 9 p.m. Looking the part of a person who just opened a restaurant — the face tired but the body energetic — Peralta said he was just happy to be open and serving Johnson County. “There’s a lot of success in Johnson County,” he said. “Seventy-five percent of our business in Westport  comes from Johnson County …. We like to support local and Mission Farms only has local businesses in it. Plus I live two blocks away so it’s convenient.”

Fans of the Westport Blanc Burgers & Bottles who live in Johnson County won’t be disappointed.
