New restaurant delays Fourth of July opening

The Brassie Bar and Grille to open doors July 7

July 3, 2003

The opening of The Brassie Bar and Grille, a new Basehor restaurant in the Falcon Lakes development, has been pushed back a few days, restaurant manager Andy Smith said this week.

Falcon Lakes is a residential development with 550 homes planned for construction and features an 18-hole public golf course, located on Kansas Highway 7, just north of Leavenworth Road.

Plans originally called for the restaurant to open its doors for business during Fourth of July activities at the development later this week. However, Smith said the restaurant's opening has been pushed back a few days until Monday, July 7.

The Brassie Bar and Grille -- named after an old two-wood golf club -- will serve "Plaza type food but not at Plaza prices," Smith said. Prices range anywhere from $5 to $6 for lunches and $9 to $18 for entrees.

"The dinner menu is along the lines of a steakhouse but has a little more than that," Smith said.

The restaurant will be housed inside the same 9,000-square-foot building as the golf course's pro shop, which is approximately 1,000 square feet, development representatives said. The Brassie will staff 25 employees and will have multi-level seating for up to 220 hungry customers.

"The upstairs is more semi-formal and the downstairs is more the bar and grill," Smith said.

The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to "whenever the last customer leaves or 2 a.m., whichever comes first," Smith said.

Although the Brassie won't be open on the Fourth of July, other events planned for that day at the Falcon Lakes development are going on as scheduled, development representatives said.

Two shotgun golf tournaments will take place July 4 with the first beginning at 8 a.m. and the second at 2 p.m. The tournaments are sold out, golf course employees said.

Following the golf tournament, an eight-piece band will perform from 6:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.

A fireworks display will begin at approximately 10:30 p.m., after the conclusion of the Basehor PRIDE pyrotechnics show.

Both the concert and display are open to the public.
