Canary KC Set to Open In Midtown

After years of success in Westport at Julep and Soft Conspiracy, owners Keely Edgington and Beau Williams’ latest project finds them in Midtown. Canary KC, a travel-inspired restaurant and bar, takes its name from Amelia Earhart’s first plane and is set to open in the historic Netherland building (3835 Main St.) this month, occupying both a ground floor and rooftop space where they’ll serve modern American food and cocktails with a twist. “One thing I keep thinking about this year is what it means to be an American,” Edgington explains. “We are truly a melting pot, and our food should reflect that. Modern American food does not have to be meatloaf.” Mark Dandurand, who most recently operated Fond out of Strang Hall, will serve as Canary’s executive chef.
