The Scoop: A new office, table and sub

December 19th 04:12pm, 2012

The list of new restaurants continues to grow. As reported by The Riverfront Times, The Office has opened. The restaurant and lounge makes it home at 5917 Delmar Blvd., a block east of the Delmar MetroLink station in the space formerly occupied by Binions.

Subliminal Grilled Subs, an Illinois-based sub sandwich shop, is expanding its franchise to St. Louis. Subliminal, which currently has Illinois locations in Waterloo, O’Fallon and Troy, has announced that it will be bringing its grilled subs to Westport Plaza and the Central West End in 2013. In Westport, Subliminal will take the space that was formerly occupied by Stone Cold Creamery, said company founder Karl Buckman. That location will offer take-out and delivery only (with outdoor seating available during warm weather months) and is expected to open in January. The CWE spot at 5 Maryland Plaza, formerly a pharmacy, will be a 35-seat, dine-in sub shop and is slated to open in late February or early March. Buckman expects to announce two additional Subliminal locations in the Metro East in the coming weeks. The menu, available on the company’s website, will be the same at all locations.

Come June, restaurant-goers interested in communal dining can head to Table, a restaurant taking the space formerly occupied by The Stable. Table is a project by chef Cassy Vires and her husband Josh Renbarger, owners of Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood. According to a press release, Table will offer a menu of “internationally inspired small plates, all finished with Vires’ signature twists.” Table will also offer a weekly reservation-only tasting menu inspired by No Menu Mondays, which has become a popular draw at Home Wine Kitchen. On the beverage size, along with a cocktail program, customers will see a “line priced” wine list similar to that at Home Wine Kitchen. While Renbarger will manage the wine and beer offerings, a bar manager responsible for cocktails is still to be determined, said Vires.

Vires explained that she and Renbarger chose the location in Benton Park because they sought a building with “interesting architecture and history.” Vires called the space at 1821 Cherokee St., “quirky” with “neat little features.” Besides replacing the The Stable’s bar, the current ambiance, which Vires called “dark, heavy and masculine,” will be softened. “The place will get a little prettiness added to it,” she said.
