Bread & Butter Concepts became a minority partner in Ingredient a year ago and had a management contract with plans to become the majority owner at a later date. It rebranded the location as Ingredient True Eatery.
Alan Gaylin, founder of Bread & Butter, said the majority owner of Ingredient decided to close the Leawood location at 11563 Ash St.
The majority owner couldn’t be reached for comment. Park Place officials declined to comment.
Ingredient’s downtown location shut down in April 2015 and Bread & Butter Concepts opened República in the former Ingredient space on the Country Club Plaza in mid-2015.

▪ After 15 years in the Mission Road Antique Mall, The Bloomsbury Bistro plans to shut down on Saturday. Chef Cari Jo Cavalcante opened the bistro in April 2001 but she relocated to Pennsylvania in 2012. She said it was now time to “pursue other opportunities.” She will concentrate on finishing The Bloomsbury Bistro Cookbook and her website, and will launch a blog this spring with updates on the cookbook and food trends.
She returned to the bistro, at 4101 W. 83rd St, Prairie Village, on Feb. 8 to oversee the closing and say goodbye to her customers.
“We were able to put out a quality product that stayed consistent for 15 years,” Cavalcante said.
