The Bond family keeps expanding their Northland restaurant operations, but customers might need a flow chart to keep up.
Brothers Nate and Titus Bond opened Crown Point Tavern a year ago at 2631 N.E. Vivion Road. They later added an arcade in the basement.
Then they opened Taco Luchador in North Kansas City with their mother, Linda Bond, in January, signing a short-term lease.

In July, Nate and Titus shut down Crown Point Tavern and relocated it to an expanded space at 6024 N.E. Antioch Road, adding new menu items including the shrimp Po Boy, the B.L.F.G.T. (applewood smoked bacon, baby mixed greens, crisp fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and Remoulade dressing on brioche) and such entrees as grilled bourbon salmon. They will add patio seating in early September.
Then in late July they closed Taco Luchador in North Kansas City and reopened it in early August in the former Crown Point Tavern space on Vivion Road.
The larger kitchen allowed them to add new menu items such as tamale and enchilada plates; grilled corn on the cob with cilantro mayo and chile piquin; “Heavyweight Nachos” with a choice of meat, black beans, fusion slaw, cheddar and queso fresco, pico de gallo, Mexican crema, fresh fried corn tortilla chips; and flautas.
“It’s going good. It’s one way to increase the revenues — make it a little bigger,” said Nate Bond.
