Quincy Street Bistro will close this Sunday

South City eatery Quincy Street Bistro will close shop for good. Owners Mike and Sue Enright made the announcement in a press release today, Oct. 25. The last day of service will be Sunday, Oct. 28. The restaurant opened at 6931 Gravois Ave., more than seven years ago.

According to Sue Enright, there were multiple factors that contributed to the decision to close. "It just kind of ran its course," she said. "We were always blessed with culinary talents, but it was more of an investment for us, and we knew it wasn’t a lifelong thing.”

The couple owns the building and did much of the rehab on it, and Enright said they hope to sell it. “It’s dear to our hearts, for sure,” she said.

The restaurant will remain open for regular business Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. On Sunday, the restaurant will host its final Kegs and Eggs brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Quincy Street Bistro served as a milestone for several area chefs’ careers, including Grace Meat & Three chef and co-owner Rick Lewis (his wife and Grace co-owner Elisa Lewis is the Enrights’ daughter), Nudo chef Chris Ladley, Ones to Watch Chris Tirone and Ari Jo Ellis (who will open Morning Glory on Cherokee Street this fall) and current Quincy Street Bistro chef Matthew Birkenmeier.
