Wichita’s second Jose Pepper’s, a Kansas City-based Mexican chain, is going into the former Timberline space at 2243 N. Tyler. It’ll open for lunch on Monday, and its hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Wichita’s other Jose Pepper’s is at 11423 E 13th St. N.
Also on Monday, Wink Hartman’s new private Lakeside Club will open in the former Bella Donna space at 2121 N. Webb Road with popular local chef Jeremy Wade in the kitchen. Word of warning: If you’re not yet a member, don’t show up planning to sign up and eat. The state requires a 10-day waiting period after a membership is paid and processed. (For information on how to join, visit www.clublakeside.com.) Memberships will cost $20 a month, and hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays. I’m promised a menu soon, which I will share.
