The Scoop: Blind Tiger at Sutton Place coming soon to Maplewood

September 25th 04:09pm, 2013



Restaurateur Mike McLaughlin is a busy man at the moment. Besides just launching catering company Substance, the owner of The Crow’s Nest is opening another restaurant in downtown Maplewood, as first reported by The Maplewood-Brentwood Patch.

McLaughlin’s newest concept will be a called Blind Tiger at Sutton Place. Situated in the former Jumpin’ Jupiter space at 7376 Manchester Road, Blind Tiger will be a pizza joint and whiskey bar – when not reserved for events such as weddings, according to McLaughlin, who is taking on the new venture with business partners Mike Jones (owner of recording space Encapsulated Studios, also in Maplewood) and Kelly Jurotich (owner of wedding and event florist The Crimson Petal).

Blind Tiger will offer four signature pizzas, as well as a build-your-own version on a crust described as a hand-tossed NYC/Chicago-style hybrid. (A St. Louis-style gluten free crust also will be available.) Other items on the food menu include: ribs braised in a house-made bourbon marinara, wings, fried olives, smoked tomato soup and polenta. Blind Tiger, which is another moniker for a speakeasy, wouldn’t be complete without a whiskey-centric bar that will be managed by Katy Romine, who was among the bar staff that opened The Cheshire.

Because interior changes will be primarily aesthetic and a liquor license was approved yesterday, McLaughlin anticipates opening Blind Tiger Nov. 1.

    As a resident of Maplewood, I’m very glad to see that this corner has been leased. The concept sounds like a good fit for the area
