The Scoop: Change is in the air for several Clayton restaurants

Open, closed or relocating – a handful of Clayton eateries are in the midst of change.

Say farewell to the soda shop at Jennifer’s Pharmacy. An old-fashioned soda fountain is not part of owner Jennifer Rich’s future plans when she relocates her pharmacy from 30 N. Central Ave., to The Oxford Building in Clayton at 141 N. Meramec Ave., Suite 315 at the end of March.

“(Rich) sees this health pharmacy as something that’s really taking off. She likes that and wants to concentrate on that more and be there for the patients,” said employee and spokesperson Isabel Biesterfeld.

March 14 is the last day for the soda shop. “We have had an amazingly wonderful time here,” said Biesterfeld, who has worked the soda fountain for the last decade.

Tani Sushi Bistro will also have a new home by April if construction continues as scheduled. Owner Eric Heckman is moving the restaurant from its perch at 16 S. Bemiston Ave., to 7726 Forsyth Blvd., in a two-level space next to Kakao Chocolate in the Centene Building. Look for minimal changes to the menu with minor swaps to hot entrees.

House of Wong has moved around the corner from its spot at 46 N. Central Ave., to a new home at 19 N. Bemiston Ave. Restaurant manager P.J. Lohani said the move occurred three weeks ago. The new space is smaller than House of Wong’s previous home, offering seating for 32 diners.

Look for doors to open in early March at Vincent Van Doughnut’s first brick-and-mortar location at 40 N. Central Ave., the space vacated by Pomme. Owner Brian Marsden had originally hoped to unlock doors by late December, as Sauce reported last fall.

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.”
