The Scoop: Terrene to close this week

June 28th 10:06am, 2011

062811_terreneWord came from a tweep this weekend that Terrene, the nearly six-year-old restaurant in the Central West End, may be closing. And today, owner John McElwain confirmed the sad news, noting that doors are scheduled to close this week. McElwain and his wife, Sunny McElwain, cited that “as our family dynamic changed so have our professional goals and direction.” The couple welcomed a baby into the family in early March.

Brian Hardesty recently left his role as executive chef at Terrene to enter St. Louis’ food truck scene with Guerrilla Street Food, which hopes to hit the streets very soon. Read what Hardesty had to say about exiting the restaurant here.
