Former Lee’s Summit restaurant sued
SummitWoods SPE LLC, owner of SummitWoods Crossing in Lee’s Summit, has filed a rent and possession lawsuit against former tenant Butcher Block Concepts LLC and its principals Thomas Hughes and Thomas A. Hughes.
SummitWoods says Butcher Block entered into an agreement in November 2014 for a five-year lease in the center with rent at $7,793.33 a month.
Butcher Block’s Bonchon opened in August but then closed at the end of the year.
SummitWoods said it is still owed funds for unpaid rent and other charges. Officials with SummitWoods did not return phone calls.
Butcher Block officials declined to comment.

Patio for Jax Fish House
Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar, just west of the Country Club Plaza, is putting in a new patio.
The 350-square-foot patio, in front of the restaurant at 4814 Roanoke Parkway, will seat 24 people at four 4-top tables and four 2-tops.
Main Street Berbiglia building bulldozed
Nearly a year after Berbiglia Wine & Spirits closed all but one of its stores, its former building at 4300 Main St. has been demolished.
Owners American Century Investments said they haven’t finalized long-term plans for the property. In the short term, they will “plant some grass and create a nice green space this spring.”
