The Scoop: Two CWE restaurants debut, plus new noshes at MX Movies

October 18th 01:10pm, 2013

Fall is in the air. That means lots of new restaurants opening doors and loads of menu changes. The Central West End is seeing the debut of two restaurants, while this weekend moviegoers at MX Movies downtown can watch a flick with some new eat-in-the-dark foods.

For Entre chef-owner John Perkins, the pop-up has run its course. Agrarian, his latest temporary restaurant, is out, and he’s ready to roost in the space at 360 N. Boyle Ave., with only one concept, as The Scoop first reported, in early September. The restaurant is called Juniper; the focus is southern cuisine. Juniper opened this week and serves dinner Wednesday through Sunday.

On Oct. 21, Gamlin Whiskey House will enter the scene as St. Louis’ first whiskey house. Located at 236 N. Euclid Ave., the highly anticipated restaurant will focus on paring whiskey with creatively prepared comfort food. The bar will have a selection of 270 whiskeys, including its own hand-selected barrels, as well as more than four dozen whiskey-centric cocktails. Helming the kitchen is Ivy Magruder, who recently left his post as exec chef and GM at Vin de Set to join owners Derek and Lucas Gamlin in their new venture. The liquid side of the house is guided by the hand of Dustin Parres, now corporate bar manager for the Gamlin Restaurant Group, which includes Sub Zero and soon-to-open Taha’a Twisted Tiki. During its first week of service, Gamlin Whiskey House will open at 4 p.m. Lunch service will begin the week of Oct. 28.

Today marks the newest round of changes to the food at MX Movies. One draw for the theatre when it opened in January was that patrons could have an enhanced experience by ordering bistro-like fare from the touch screen next to their seats instead of munching on typical concession items such as candy and popcorn. Some 10 months after Josh Galliano, consulting chef for MX Movies developed the initial menu, the staff at MX has made tweaks so that “more things are easier to eat in the dark,” said GM Chris Bruemmer. New menu items include shrimp and beef tacos, quesadillas, shrimp cocktail and a variety of flatbread pizzas. Among the latter, try the barbecued chicken, a crisped pita topped with barbecue sauce, southwest-seasoned chicken, bacon, smoked cheddar and red onions.
