119thRoeBlogTwenty years ago, the landscape of 119th and Roe looked a heck of a lot different—even ten years ago—the place is nearly unrecognizable. The explosion of the area has really given the folks in Leawood and Overland Park a go-to for pretty much everything they need. Really, the area is pretty unique to Kansas—generally you see places like this in Los Angeles or San Diego, California.

Lets take a moment to look at a few of the key places to help you really appreciate what that area has to offer. (No, I am not listing them all…There are tons!)

Grocery:

Dean & Deluca – High end grocery/food and quality knickknack items for the kitchen.

Hen House – Grocery and meal options.

Trader Joes – Grocery

Shopping:

Crate & Barrel – Things for your home; kitchen accessories, kids room etc.

Park Place

Geno’s Clothiers – Men’s clothing, shoes, watches, etc.

Alysa Rene Boutique – Designer women’s clothing boutique.

Tallulahbelle’s – Handcrafted jewelry, scarves, handbags, belts, as well a unique art and decor for your home.

Town Center – Tons of shops, both local and national.

Hawthorne Plaza

Annabelles Linens – Fine bed, bath and table linens, luxurious women’s sleepwear, baby boutique and other gifts/decor for the home.

Blend – Fragrance boutique; Blend your own smells and buy niche.

Restaurants:

810 Zone Leawood

Red Door Grill

 Sullivan’s Steakhouse

Hereford House

Joe’s Kansas City (Oklahoma Joe’s) Bar-B-Que

Dean & Deluca (Did you know they have amazing lunch and dinner options?…Well you do now!)

Tech:

Apple Store

On top of this, you have places like Leawood Fine Art, Salon One19 & Spa, and many more to choose from.

This whole explosion started with Town Center Plaza and Hawthorne, places like Dean & Deluca have been a staple in the area for a long time. The first migrants to this high-end mecca have loved its quality and class for some time. Don’t believe me? Look around the office—if you work anywhere near—and watch the folks come in and plop that white bag on the table with pride. They may have ordered a half sandwich, but they wanted that big bag to show off.

This area of 119th between Roe and Nall has built up around these flagships like Dean & Deluca, Crate & Barrel, Town Center, Hawthorne, etc., and it’s clear to see the area has truly hit its stride. It will be exciting to see how the area grows from here.
