The secret’s out! We have made the careful business decision to close República after dinner service on May 28th and introduce a new restaurant concept in its location to open in mid-June. After remodeling, we will reopen the restaurant as a refined version of an American tavern named The Oliver.
Although República has been a significant piece of Bread & Butter Concepts for the last year, we feel it has not met the company’s business goals. We have enjoyed serving the community at República and are grateful for all the customers and staff who have been a part of the restaurant. We feel that we have an exciting new concept that will surely connect with Kansas Citians.
With minimal downtime during the transition, we will retain the staff from República and will begin training on The Oliver immediately after closing. The Oliver will honor the modern-urban, Midwestern charm of Kansas City through local ingredients and an elevated twist on American classics.
