The Scoop: Sandwich shops open doors in The Loop, Midtown

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Hungry for crusty bread filled with whatever meat, cheese or veggie you crave? Get your fix at one of two sandwich shops, Snarf’s and Which Wich, which have both recently expanded in St. Louis.

Snarf’s opened its third location today, June 2, at 374A S. Grand Blvd., near Saint Louis University. The family-owned business offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although known for its made-to-order, oven-toasted sandwiches, the menu also includes breakfast sandwiches for the morning crowd, fresh salads, soups and desserts. Beer and wine are among the beverage offerings. The newest location is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to midnight and weekends from 8 a.m. to midnight.

Snarf’s entered the St. Louis market four years ago with a shop in The Loop. A location downtown in the MX Building followed in 2012. With origins in Boulder, Colorado, Snarf’s has grown to a total of 18 restaurants located throughout that state, as well as in Chicago and St. Louis. A shop is also slated to open this summer in Austin, Texas.

A new local unit for national sandwich chain Which Wich open less than two weeks ago in The Loop at 6662 Delmar Blvd., in the space formerly occupied by Cold Stone Creamery. This unit is operated by franchisee Satish Kumar, who also owns House of India in University City.

Which Wich offers more than 50 varieties of customizable sandwiches and is known for its ordering system. Patrons fill out their orders on a sandwich bag with the menu printed on it. Customers choose from one of 10 sandwich categories (such as turkey, Italian or seafood), then select the type of bread, sandwich length, cheese, spreads and vegetables. The sandwiches are made-to-order and handed to customers in the marked-up bag. This makes the third St. Louis-area Which Wich unit; the other two are located in Des Peres and Chesterfield.



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.”
