The Scoop: Dave Bailey is opening a new restaurant

May 10th 10:05am, 2013

Restaurateur Dave Bailey, owner of Baileys’ Chocolate Bar, Rooster, Bridge and Baileys’ Range, is expanding again.

In a press release, Bailey relayed, “Ten years ago, right before I opened Baileys’ Chocolate Bar, I knew that I wanted to open several restaurants (a burger restaurant, a dessert bar, a breakfast joint, a beer bar, and more), but opening a vegetarian restaurant was at the top of that list. At the time, I didn’t have the right space, I didn’t have the right menu, I didn’t have the right staff … but now I do.”

The vegetarian restaurant, set to open in early fall of this year, will be named Small Batch. Located in Midtown Alley on Locust Street, a block from Pappy’s Smokehouse in the old Ford Motor Building, the restaurant will feature a 25-foot marble bar, a mezzanine level with seating for 34, and large windows on the ground floor that open to create an open-air sidewalk patio.

Peter Clark and Stephen Trouvere, Bailey’s executive chefs, are working with Bailey to create a menu that crosses ethnicities and is, as Bailey described, “designed to provide satisfying and vibrant food that will make sure that the meat is not missed.”

In addition to vegetarian fare, the bar at Small Batch will focus on American whiskeys and bourbons. Starting June 1, Small Batch’s website, www.SmallBatchSTL.com, will become live.

In addition to Bailey’s new restaurant, he has moved the bakery out of Range into the same building that Rooster occupies. The bakery will continue to provide fresh breads, desserts and ice creams for all of Bailey’s restaurants. Starting Monday, the bakery will also be making pastries, muffins and loaves of bread available for purchase at Rooster on Mondays through Fridays. In place of the bakery at Range, there is now three more bathrooms and 40 additional seats.

    I love Bailey’s Chocolate Bar so hopefully this new venture will be just as good. I wish Dave all the best.

    Assuming there’s been a holdup with this as it’s now September 3rd and the web site still hasn’t changed and no other information published?
