Blanc Burgers + Bottles Is Back in Westport

Blanc Burgers + Bottles has returned to its Westport roots, opening a new restaurant in the neighborhood this week.

Ernesto and Jenifer Peralta opened the gourmet burger restaurant in the neighborhood in 2008, relocating to a bigger Country Club Plaza store in 2010 and adding a Leawood store. But with more quality local businesses coming to Westport, Ernesto Peralta says it was time to return.

The new location features the same delicious lineup of burgers and sides, patio seating and an evolved take on Blanc’s trademark modern white interior.

“We grew up in Westport, we went away for college and now we’re coming home,” Peralta says. “We feel like our concept has a better fit in Westport.”
