Peanches drops its reservation-only policy
Chef-restaurateur Ray “Pete” Peterman’s decision to limit service in his midtown restaurant, Peanches (900 West 39th Street, 816-709-3032), to patrons with reservations proved controversial from the beginning. But Peterman, perhaps the most iconclastic – and sometimes combative – chef in Kansas City, stuck to his principles for months.
Now that Peanches is nearly a year old, Peterman has dropped the policy of no walk-ins. Customers without reservations can now get a table. It wasn’t an easy decision.
