WICHITA — Opening a new restaurant is challenging enough, but two at one time?
“I don’t know (how), but we’re going to do it,” says Nicole Chappelle, who recently reopened the Bay Leaf with her sister Ericka Chappelle, Matthew McCann and his mother, Nga McCann.
Everyone but Nga McCann is now partnering to open City Limit Grill in August at 15019 W. U.S. 54.
Nicole Chappelle says they’ve been working on the space since April 2009.
“It had been taking so long, and then this opportunity came up,” she says of buying the Bay Leaf at Clifton Square.
Where the Bay Leaf offers what Chappelle calls homemade and gourmet food, City Limit will specialize in homemade pizzas and burgers.
“It’s kind of more like a sports bar,” she says.
There will be a dining room and a separate bar area.
