The Scoop: Broadway Oyster Bar and Tortillaria undergoing renovations

December 19th 12:12pm, 2012

Two local establishments are keeping things fresh with renovations. Tortillaria Mexican Kitchen will be closed for a brief period, beginning today, in order to remodel the kitchen and service area. “We took over an old space eight years ago and are finally able to do some much needed repairs and maintenance that will ensure at least another eight wonderful years in the Central West End,” said co-owner Adam Tilford in regards to the restaurant located at 8½ S. Euclid Ave. Tortillaria is expected to reopen the second week of January. Earlier this year, Tilford gave a facelift to his restaurant Milagro Modern Mexican in Webster Groves, and he is currently in the midst of renovating the old Delmar Lounge space at 6235 Delmar Blvd., in The Loop, with plans to open it as a taco joint named Mission.

Meanwhile, Broadway Oyster Bar owner John Johnson is renovating his restaurant and music venue located downtown at 736 S. Broadway Ave. Groundbreaking has already begun for the kitchen, which, upon completion in late February or early March, will enable Broadway Oyster Bar to “serve our customers more quickly and efficiently” while also providing the restaurant “more opportunities to cater events both here and off-site,” said Johnson.

In addition, Johnson is planning to build another structure in the vacant lot just north of the existing building. The addition will more than double the restaurant’s seating capacity – currently at 70 – and will also include a grilling station and oyster shucking station visible to patrons. “We are still working on details for the customer space, but, rest assured, it will have the same feel and ambiance as the existing operation with a few new touches as well,” said Johnson. This phase of the renovation is slated to be completed in the spring of 2013.
