The Scoop: Casa del Mar closes doors in The Galleria

September 21st 02:09pm, 2015

After almost a year in operation on the main level of the St. Louis Galleria, Casa del Mar served its final course on Saturday, Sept. 19. Co-owner Bruce Lazarus said there simply wasn’t enough foot traffic to sustain business.

“We don’t compromise on quality or standards,” Lazarus said. “The traffic doesn’t reach that end of the mall at this time, and the (lack) of volume made it impossible to operate at our standard.”

Casa de Mar’s sister restaurant, Canyon Café, has operated at Plaza Frontenac for nearly two decades. Lazarus said he and the other co-owners will continue to look in the St. Louis area and other markets for ways to expand their Mexican concept enterprises.
