KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A food hall in Kansas City will reopen Thursday after sprinklers damaged the building.

The general manager at Parlor said the building is back to working condition and will open at 11 a.m. for regular lunch service. 

Friday, a pan overheated in one of the kitchens, setting off the sprinklers. The food hall had been closed the entire week. 

Dom Hoferer, the general manager, said the sprinkler damage was minimal, but required a lot of cleanup. It forced the owners to take a closer look at the electrical system inside the building. Crews confirmed everything is in good shape.

It's been an up and down start for Parlor. The food hall had a huge opening weekend in September but was burglarized in October, and suffered this water damage earlier this month. Hoferer hopes all the bad is behind them and said the low points showed how much support Kansas City has for the concept.
