Riverbend Restaurant and Three Flags Tavern close
Owner Sam Kogos opened Riverbend in 2010 in Soulard after relocating from New Orleans. The restaurant moved to its Richmond Heights location in 2014.
Kogos did not return requests for comment, but Riverbend's website and a message on the restaurant’s voicemail confirmed the closure.
This follows on the heels of another prominent closing, Three Flags Tavern, in early March, also reported by St. Louis Magazine. Owner John O’Brien did not respond to multiple requests for comment since the closure. The restaurant opened in 2014; Sauce reviewed it in August of that year.
