Humble Pie makes way for Dottie’s Flour Shop in Ladue

Monday, November 13th, 2017



Pizza takeout spot Humble Pie, which opened in April, has officially closed its doors, but the space at 9783 Clayton Road in Ladue won’t be empty for long.

As reported by the Riverfront Times, Jessica Lucas, who owns both Humble Pie and Fozzie’s Sandwich Emporium with husband Mark Lucas, will open Dottie’s Flour Shop in the space with her business partner, Dottie Silverman.

Mark Lucas said Dottie’s will be an organic bakeshop that will also feature upscale kitchen goods. “We’re starting on the changeover this week,” Lucas said. “We have to do a couple of cosmetic things and some equipment swaps, but they should be in there within a week or so.”

Lucas said Humble Pie initially closed in mid-October for a menu overhaul, but it became apparent that a concept change was needed.

“We just found that the kitchen space was just too small for that menu,” he said. “[Dottie’s Flour Shop’s] business has just grown, and they were looking for a space, so it just made sense.”

Lucas said he plans to revisit Humble Pie at some point. “We’re kind of putting it on the back burner,” he said. “It’s just a matter of finding the right space for it. Right now we have enough going on with the transition, and I’d like to do some stuff with Fozzie’s, so I’d say we’ll revisit it in maybe six months or a year and see where we are.”

The Scoop: Fozzie’s opens locale No. 2 in Des Peres

Friday, August 30th, 2013



Fozzie’s Sandwich Emporium is now open for business in Des Peres. The new shop, located at 11656 Manchester Road in the space that most recently housed Dottie’s Ice Cream Parlor, marks the second location for the popular stop for gourmet sandwiches.

Owner Mark Lucas opened the original location on Big Bend Boulevard in Richmond Heights in June 2010. He explained he chose to add a location in West County because “we’re a good fit for this area.” At 1,400 square feet and with 40 seats, Fozzie’s No. 2 is a jump in size compared to its 10-seat (not counting the patio with its colorful backyard chairs) sister restaurant in Richmond Heights.

The menus are identical at both Fozzie’s locations. Besides specialty sandwiches, customers can order seasonal salads (We’ve given the panzanella salad a thumbs up as a Meatless Monday meal.), house-made spreads with pita and desserts, including cookies and brownies made in-house by Laura Hiedotten, manager at the Richmond Heights store. Both Fozzie’s locations are open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and offer delivery anywhere within 5 miles of the shop.
