PB&J Restaurants is planning an exciting anniversary celebration for cuisine fans in the Kansas City area this summer.
PB&J Restaurants, Inc. celebrated its 25th anniversary with several big announcements, including the opening of four new restaurants in 18 months and the 20th anniversary of the area’s long-time favorite, YaYa’s Eurobistro. On top of this, PB&J Restaurants is planning an anniversary celebration for summer 2013.
In December 1987, PB&J opened its first restaurant in Overland Park. Now, the company operates 14 restaurants in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado and Arkansas, including seven award-winning fine- and casual-dining restaurants, as well as seven PB&J Red Robin franchises.
Adding to this abundance, in the next 18 months, PB&J will open Newport Grill (pictured above), Paradise Diner and a private dinner club and banquet space in the Prairiefire retail development in Overland Park. Newport Grill will open on the first floor in February 2014, and it will specialize in seafood flown in fresh six days a week. Paradise Diner will open on the first floor in May 2014. The private dinner club and banquet space will be located on the upper level in June 2014. In addition, a new PB&J restaurant will open in Chicago with details coming soon.

PB&J Restaurants Owner and Co-Founder Paul Khoury created and manages a family of five fine-dining restaurants. This includes YaYa’s in four locations and Newport Grill in Wichita, which has quickly earned a reputation as being one of the finest restaurants in the city. PB&J Restaurants also operates Burnt End BBQ & Catering in Overland Park and Backfire BBQ at the Legends in Kansas City, Kan.
PB&J Restaurants has entered the institutional business and is the only restaurant company approved for the Kansas City Convention Center/Bartle Hall. PB&J also provides meals on site at JE Dunn Construction’s corporate headquarters and to the residents at Bishop Place retirement community.
PB&J Restaurants caters more than 1,000 events annually, most notably the Kansas Gubernatorial Inauguration and the grand opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
