WICHITA — Douglas “D.J.” Pitts is returning downtown with a new restaurant concept.
Pitts first opened 626 Douglas in 2004 at 626 E. Douglas.
He's now opening D&K Kitchen at 217 E. Douglas in the former Stang space next to Athena Jewelry.
So says Athena owner Sophokles "Steve" Anthimides, who says he's leasing Pitts the space.
Pitts couldn't be reached for comment.
Anthimides says D&K will serve American and French cuisine.
He says the new restaurant initially will be open only for lunch. Hours eventually will expand.
One restaurant deal that won't happen for Anthimides is Eaton Steakhouse reopening in the former Lancers space in Century Plaza at Douglas and Main.
"I changed my mind on that," Anthimides says.
