The Scoop: Bistro 1130, Plush, Takaya New Asian all close doors

A handful of area restaurants have closed with the flip of the calendar: Bistro 1130, Plush and Takaya New Asian.

Bistro 1130 owner Mikki Jones confirmed her West County eatery shuttered but did not comment as to why. Bistro 1130 opened in 2010 at 1130 Town and Country Crossing Drive. In early 2014, Jones revamped the bistro concept, expanding the menu from French to Mediterranean cuisine.

Farther east, Midtown Alley entertainment venue Plush closed its doors Jan. 3, according to its Facebook page. When Plush opened at 3224 Locust St., on New Year’s Eve in 2011, its kitchen served up from-scratch diner-style food to positive reviews, including from Sauce. However, Plush ended table service in July 2014 and tightened its menu to appetizers and small plates more conducive to its lounge and music performances. Owner Maebelle Reed did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Downtown restaurant Takaya New Asian has also called things to an end, as reported by Ian Froeb of the Post-Dispatch. Takaya is among the handful of tenants, including restaurants Pi and Snarf’s, that opened doors in the Mercantile Exchange building after that complex was renovated in 2012. Owner Eric Heckman, who also owns Tani Sushi Bistro and Area 14 Lounge in Clayton, was not immediately available for comment.
