Made in KC - Downtown OP

7325 W. 80th St.

Recently opened July 22nd, Made in KC joined the Downtown OP community focused on supporting local makers. We want the store to be a sort of highly curated launching pad for creators. A place to make small creators easily accessible to the greater metro. We build relationships with the local artists and are excited when the artists are able to expand their brand even beyond the Made in KC shops.

Of Course Kitchen & Co.

7753 W. 159th St.

Private chef Swetha Newcomb is opening a modern Asian restaurant in southern Overland Park this summer 2023. Of Course’s menu will feature New American cuisine with a “a lot of Asian fusion flair,” says Swetha. The chef’s fusion cuisine is evident in menu items like braised short rib samosas with blackberry tamarind chutney and Madras curry scallops. Hefty entrees like the umami ribeye for two and a wagyu smash burger are also offered for those looking for something more familiar. Other shareable plates teeter the line of adventurous and comforting, like savory donuts served with a house-made mushroom cream cheese.
