Sugarfire Smoke House team will take over The Boathouse

The Boathouse at Forest Park will soon be under new management. As reported by St. Louis Magazine, the team behind Sugarfire Smoke House, Hi-Pointe Drive-In and Cyrano’s will take over the restaurant sometime in early 2018. The Boathouse has most recently been run by Catering St. Louis.

Sugarfire co-owner Mike Johnson said the new Boathouse menu hasn’t been set yet, but it won’t be another Sugarfire or Hi-Pointe location. He said menu items would most likely include affordable options like sandwiches, salads, grab-and-go items, kid-friendly fare and possibly picnic baskets, but it’s still very much a work in progress.

Johnson said they also have not decided what the service model will be, or what modifications, if any, would be done to the space. He did confirm, however, that the fleet of paddleboats would be getting a serious upgrade.

While it’s a done deal that Sugarfire will helm the space, Johnson said that the final details, including when the handover will take place, will be finalized next week.

“We’ve been looking at this space for quite a while,” Johnson said. “We’re going to make Forest Park proud. We’re taking this seriously.”

The Perfect Morning Routine

Sunday, April 28th, 2013

In theory, it’s easy to be romanced into a stroll around Forest Park when the sun is shining and the trail is lined with the buds of spring. But what’s really worth kicking the covers off on a sleepy Sunday morning? A great cup of coffee. And thanks to Kaldi’s new hand-brew bar, I’m happy to slip on my sneakers to take a walk around (arguably) our city’s most beautiful park whether the Mercury climbs to 100 or drops all the way down to 20. The pot of gold at the end of my six-mile rainbow: a piping hot carafe of hand-brewed pour-over coffee and a cupful of yogurt parfait complete with granola, fresh mint, berries and a layer of spoonable, lickable, craveable citrus-vanilla yogurt. The hour that follows is spent sipping, scooping and some of the finest people-watching in town. So that’s where you’ll find me just about every weekend – I’m the one in the corner with a dirty spoon, a sleepy dog and an empty mug.
