More restaurant tenants and a timeline for the MX District – UPDATED

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Four restaurants are now lined up as tenants for the MX District, the downtown development area that includes the Laurel Building and the Mercantile Exchange Building, formerly known as St. Louis Centre. Sandwich shop Snarf’s is the latest tenant to commit to the downtown project, as reported by George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine.

This will be the second area location for Snarf’s, an independently owned chain based in Colorado that opened its first shop in St. Louis at 6301 Delmar Blvd., in The Loop in 2010.

Snarf’s joins three other eateries – Pi Pizzeria, Robust Wine Bar and Takaya New Asian Restaurant – that are slated to open this year in the district. Takaya is a new restaurant from Eric Heckman, who also owns Tani Sushi Bistro and Area 14 Lounge in Clayton. The Scoop reported a year ago that Pi would be adding a downtown address, while news that Robust would open its second locale in the MX District came last summer.

According to a spokesperson for the MX District, Pi is expected to open its doors in late May or early June. The other restaurants will open some time in September or October, likely coinciding with the grand opening of a three-screen movie theater that will be housed in the MX Building.

UPDATE 4/23/12: Snarf’s owner Jodi Aronson informed The Scoop that she expects to open the Snarf downtown location in late fall. The shell for the space should be completed by September; the build-out will then require two to three months to complete. Aronson also noted that she has been looking at spaces around town with hopes of adding at least two more Snarf’s sandwich shops in the St. Louis area. “We would love to open one out west. I think if we could open an additional two [with]in a year from now, then we’d be very happy.”
