Tony: A Bit More About Blanc Burgers + Bottles

Last night’s soft opening/preview at Blanc Burgers + Bottles was a great opportunity to garner a few details about the place that have yet to be reported.

While my usual hang out is the takeout line in local Chinese places I have to admit day dreaming about the place after I left. If I had any cash to spare this Plaza location seems like the perfect place to pick up chicks while maybe grabbing some gourmet burgers. In my daydreams I also don’t make ultimatums to ladies I’m interested in within the first few moments of conversation. But I digress.

Kansas City PR dude extraordinaire Will Gregory was at the event last night and he introduced me to Ernesto Peralta who has enjoyed a meteoric Kansas City success story that’s noteworthy.

No more than 6 years ago Peralta was a bartender at The Capital Grille and now he’s a member of a member of an elite class of restaurateurs making waves in a class of Kansas City’s trendiest restaurants.

There has been a lot of talk about the Blanc Burgers + Bottles move from Westport but Peralta provides a laid back perspective on the relocation that cuts off much of the speculation.

“We basically outgrew the Westport location,” Peralta said. “Our business has expanded and we simply needed more space. This new location gives us the room we need.”

Peralta is quick to point out that the distance between the old Westport spot and new Plaza digs is less than a half a mile and basically they’re serving the same clientele.

Personally, I like the new Plaza place because the parking is better but I’m practical like that.

In the final analysis the upscale burger joint seems to fit better on The Plaza and might provide a more appropriate setting for random hookups for those folks lucky enough to have the means to hang out at the posh new place.

    It’s capitalism at its finest. Ol’ Tony got a free meal last night. I’m sure Hearne did too. So what? They pushed a little blurb about a nice KC story. Move on.

    You left out the part about the “appropriate setting” being as far away as possible from the better burgers and bottles served at the Flea Market sans the air of pretentious douchebag.

    Well they moved. That is fine. I am not spending 10 plus bucks for a burger served with mayo mixed with spices and a couple of avacado slices, and drink some beer where more ingenuity went into the name rather than the quality of the product. I am a little skeptical of a joint that would move so quick. If they were really rocking… they wouldn’t have moved. The dude owner obviously has some jack left to spend. Good for him. But hey.. this is America. If he wants to pay plaza rent… let him.

    I don’t think freebies are the same thing as advertising but I’ve been to blanc and it’s not bad.

    I don’t mind whores, but at least Tony and Hearne should admit they are whores instead of this crap.

    since when do low lifes who can’t put 2 nickels
    together become food critics for upscale

    This isnt cici pizza or the slop joints you
    normally eat in cause you can’t afford more
    than 1.59 for the entre.
    Hows that stalking of the longhorn girl going.
    Did you spend another 3 hours searching for
    her photo on the internet till you found one
    that enabled you to search her private parts
    and make comments about them on kc confidential.
    Peralta doesnt need free loaders like you in

    JOJO when is the race? STFU!! Until you become a man don’t speak.

    And i understand you know all about cock-tails as you have had a co*k up your tail. Read The Last Word’s advice. Stop hanging out at the Liberty memorial. Stop spending hours every day on KC Confidential. Get a life. Find a girl. What he’s say? Oh yeah buy a pet. Also u fu*king idiot if you knew how to read you’d know I thought the longhorn chick was fat. But hey its easier for you just to make up sh*t huh? Loser get a life. You can find a friend on a 900 line or yeah meet someone at Town Topic or Chubbys. Banging your sister,mom, and little brother isn’t considered having a friend. Hearne deleting your crap isn’t considering having a friend. Get a real one.

    When is the race loser?

    Anyone notice how the sports blogs on here use to attract 30-50 comments. Now they are lucky if they get 15. Looks like Jojo is running people off. Hearne he’s not good for business. And that’s what this should be about business. Not the ravings of a self absorbed mad man that has no outlet but this place. That’s pretty sad when you have no friends and all you can do is write on blogs. we should all get together and buy him a goldfish or something.

    “enlaqrge them on your monitor so cna look at her private parts” Jojo we know you are scared to race Greg. I would also suggest you don’t consider trying out for Smarter Then a Fifth Grader. Now we know why you go by Jojo….you can’t spell Joseph. Boy, you are a prize.

    At least my boy is starting to be honest. I see he signed one of his blogs with “LOSER!”. That is a first step in acknowledging what he is.
