WICHITA — Cathy Hetterscheidt, the peripatetic restaurateur, is opening another new restaurant.

She says she's planning to open Seneca Street Cafe in the former Tepa Cafe space at 3835 S. Seneca, which is next to Seneca Street Bar & Grill.

Hetterschedit has had a string of cafes in various spots around town over the last several years, the most recent being the Breakfast Club at 1002 S. Seneca.

She says she decided to close because of "basically the gentleman that I was dealing with, Craig Gabel."

Gabel was Hetterscheidt's landlord, though he says he wasn't certain the restaurant was closed.

"I've done everything I can for this woman," Gabel says.

He says he paid Hetterscheidt's water bill for the entire time she was in the restaurant, and he says she further wanted him to give her free or reduced prices on her rent and other things at the building.

"Everything's in my name right now," Hetterscheidt says.
