East Ted’s building won’t be a restaurant

Construction crews were busy this morning at the former Ted's space at K-96 and Webb.

I’ve been getting lots of e-mails and questions this week about the construction activity at the east side Ted’s Montana Grill building at K-96 and Webb, which has been vacant since the restaurant closed in November 2010.

People are wondering if the building, which construction crews are currently expanding, will hold another restaurant.

But the answer, alas, is “no.” When completed, the building will house the new offices of Kansas Gastroenterology and Kansas Endoscopy, a practice owned by Drs. Michael Lievens and Estephan Zayat.

Although I, like the rest of you, am sorry that the building won’t be home to a new restaurant, does anyone else get a giggle out of the fact that it will house doctors who specialize in digestive issues?
