The Scoop: Thai 202 opens, SOHA coming soon, La Dolce Via to say adieu

August 30th 02:08pm, 2012

Thai 202 opened this week at 235 N. Euclid Ave., in the Central West End. The restaurant, located in the space formerly occupied by hot dog eatery Audi-K’s, offers numerous classic Thai noodle and rice dishes. The Thai 202 website is currently under construction.

A bar and grill is coming soon to the Clifton Heights neighborhood. Per reports from Ian Froeb of the Riverfront Times, SOHA Bar & Grill will make its home at 2605 Hampton Ave., once occupied by Off the Vine. The gastropub, slated to open in four to six weeks, will offer more than 30 craft beers on draft.

Finally, La Dolce Via has announced that it will be closing. The everything’s-from-scratch cafe, located in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood at 4470 Arco Ave., will shutter for good after brunch service on January 1, as reported by Byron Kerman for St. Louis Magazine. Kerman’s post reprints a letter to the cafe’s supporters explaining the closure: “Doing business in this neighborhood has been arduous at times, and we’ve struggled to stay above water with the economic collapse and the high cost of using the best ingredients. However, our reason for deciding to close has only to do with the fact that our family has decided to move on to our next adventure.” The news comes just a few months shy of the cafe’s 10th anniversary.

To encourage patrons to visit La Dolce Via before doors close permanently, hours have been extended. Beginning this week, the cafe is open Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
