A South Topeka restaurant is back in business.

Topeka Chamber of Commerce ambassadors joined owner Ron Cleaver in cutting the ribbon on Boulevard Grill, 3251 SW Topeka Blvd.

The building was formerly home to a Bennigans restaurant. It closed when Bennigans parent company declared bankruptcy, so Cleaver, who was manager of the Topeka Bennigans, decided to try his hand at running a restaurant himself.

Cleaver said he's seen a lot of businesses closing in South Topeka and wanted to join in efforts to revitalize the area. He says it was important to him to reopen the restaurant because he'd seen so many family gatherings, first dates, special celebrations and other milestones marked there by people over the years.

Boulevard Grill opened its doors in December. Its menu features new twists on some of the old Bennigans favorites along with some new items, including fried green beans.
