Story Restaurant opens today in Prairie Village, The Pitch, Jonathan Bender

The doors to Story Restaurant (3931 West 69th Terrace) will officially open in 30 minutes. The new restaurant from chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen (featured earlier this month in Fat City's three-part chef-interview series) and his wife, Susan, is located in the Village Shops. The pair are hoping to create a neighborhood spot, wherein folks can stop by for a few small plates or a sit-down dinner. 

"Our appetizer menu will be about twice as long as our entree list. That's so you can feel like you can come in and get a bite and a glass of wine or a beer. It's meant to be casual," Thorne-Thomsen says.

The restaurant serves a lunch menu from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, an afternoon menu from 2 to 5 p.m. daily, a dinner menu from 5 to 10 p.m. daily, and brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 

The Prairie Village Post attended a menu preview last night and has photos of the space and several dishes. 

Story is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You can make reservations on Open Table or by calling 913-236-9955.
