BRGR owners aim for July open date at Urban Table

The owners of BRGR have set a target open date of July for Urban Table, their new restaurant just a few doors east of the popular Corinth gourmet burger spot.
Renovations on the Urban Table space, most recently occupied by EJ’s Boutique, are currently underway.

Co-owner Alan Gaylin said the decision to expand the company’s operations in the Prairie Village area was an easy one.

“The demographics here in Prairie Village, and really all the way to (I-435) and up through the Plaza, are some of the best in the whole city,” Gaylin said. “We thought the market here was underserved. People want to stay close to home if they can. Especially if you give them good quality, good service and a good value.”

Gaylin said the new restaurant will be part “urban grocery store,” part casual wine bar.

Breakfast offerings will include a full coffee bar and pastry counter where people can pick up items on their way to work, as well as sit down options like mini waffles and hot egg dishes.

Lunch will feature a similar set up, with a selection of grab-and-go sandwiches and salads plus a sit down menu.

Along with an extensive wine list, evening offerings will include a wide array of appetizers plus more traditional entree-sized dishes.

Gaylin said he’s been pleased to see other restauranteurs, like Kelly Manning at Tavern in the Village and Carl and Susan Thorne-Thomsen at Story, make the move into the area.

“We like to think we helped start a trend here with the other restauranteurs,” Gaylin said. “It’s a good thing for everybody.”
