The Scoop: Jonathan Olson to bring seasonal slant to menu at Soulard’s Market Grill

August 31st 01:08pm, 2011

062111_olsonChef Jonathan Olson has been hired as the executive chef at Market Grill in Soulard. Olson, who served as exec chef at Erato on Main in Edwardsville, Ill., from January to August of last year, and most recently had a short run helming the kitchen at The Terrace View downtown, assumed the position at Market Grill two weeks ago. He was brought on board to redesign the lunch, dinner and brunch menus at the restaurant, located at 728 Lafayette Ave., across the street from Soulard Farmers’ Market.

Fresh, seasonal fare will be the focus of Market Grill’s re-concepted “modern American” menu, according to Olson. “We’ll use as much local [ingredients] as possible and cook with the seasons,” he said, adding that numerous items will be prepared in-house, including breads (brioche and flatbreads, to begin) and pastas.

To pave the way for these changes, Market Grill will close on Monday, September 5 and reopen on Friday, September 9.

    I tried this restaurant some months ago and did not enjoy the experience. I gave it another shot today for lunch hoping there might be some benefit to the re-vamping hype. The place dead. The staff are pointlessly frenzied with only four tables to wait on. The service was deficient. The extremely limited lunch menu did not deliver. The food was mediocre at best. I wish we would have left after perusing the weak menu like other potential patrons. I read the comments on foursquare, apparently they do not know how to make a drink either.
