Village Anchor owner Kevin Grangier set to expand again

Less than a year after the major re-imagining of the old KT’s space on Lexington Rd. into Le Moo Steakhouse, Kevin Grangier, who also operates The Village Anchor in Anchorage, has plans for a new Anchorage restaurant, and more restaurant ideas for the future. The first of these ideas will be PICNIC, a casual eatery serving breakfast sandwiches and pastries, soups, salads and sandwiches and upscale comfort foods at dinner. PICNIC will be located in the one-time train depot next to Grangier’s signature restaurant, The Village Anchor.

Caitlin Bowling’s Insider Louisville story reports that Grangier’s Belle Noble Entertainment Group also has plans for several more restaurant ideas. The success of Le Moo has energized Grangier, and given him confidence that what he learned from that project can be transferred to several new concepts.

PICNIC, which will be open 6 a.m. till 10 p.m daily, is shooting for a July 4 opening.
