WICHITA — Former Eaton Steakhouse owners Steve and Stephanie Compton may reopen their restaurant in a new space.
The Comptons were evicted from Eaton Place for failure to pay rent. They’re now looking down the street at 217 E. Douglas.
Athena Jewelry owner Sophokles Anthimides owns the building and has been talking to the Comptons about leasing the space. He’s meeting with them at 10 a.m. today “to see what they want to do.”
“That’s where they want to be to start,” Anthimides says.
He also owns Century Plaza at Douglas and Main where there’s restaurant space in the basement. The well-known Lancers is one of several restaurants that was once there.
“They’re talking about later on, if they do well here, they can move over there,” Anthimides says of the Comptons.
He says he’ll update us after this morning’s meeting.
There’s no word from the Comptons on their plans because they’ve requested that Have You Heard? not contact them anymore.
