Olive & Oak shares details on new concept, The Clover and The Bee

The latest project from the folks behind Olive & Oak now has an official name, The Clover and The Bee, and an almost official opening date.

As reported by St. Louis Magazine, co-owner Mark Hinkle said the restaurant should debut at the end of this month. “As far as opening day, I hate to throw anything firm out there, but hopefully not long after the Thanksgiving holiday,” Hinkle said.

As The Scoop reported in January, Hinkle announced his plans to open another spot at 100 W. Lockwood Ave., in Webster Groves, next door to his successful restaurant, Olive & Oak.

The Clover and The Bee’s name is taken from a line in Emily Dickinson’s poem “To Make A Prairie.” It is an homage of sorts to the space’s former tenant, Webster Groves Bookshop, and the teamwork needed to open a new venture.

Hinkle said at first The Clover and The Bee will serve only breakfast and lunch, though he expects to start dinner service in early 2018. The restaurant has 40 to 45 seats, and unlike Olive & Oak, will have counter service and be a more fast-casual experience. A walk-up coffee window, delivery service and carryout will also be available.

Hinkle said the menu is still a work in progress, but will have fun twists on breakfast items. “We’re going to try and get out of that normal box you see at breakfast,” Hinkle said. “It’ll be Olive & Oak-style food, but tweaked a little bit for the daytime.”
