Rounding up restaurants new, gone and soon to be

  • Freebirds opens tomorrow in Westport.

Soups, coffee, piping-hot burritos — a crop of new restaurants is dedicated to warming your frozen hands and cold insides this winter. Here’s a list of some new places and a few that have closed, along with a glimpse at what’s on the KC restaurant horizon. [This round-up is also available in this week’s print edition.]

Freebirds World Burrito opens at 554 Westport Road Thursday, October 25. The first area location for the Austin, Texas, burrito exporter drew big crowds to Mission (6029 Metcalf) over the summer. The Westport location’s hours are 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday, and 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
