First Look: Re-Voaked in the Central West End
When Oaked executive chef Stephan Ledbetter left the Soulard restaurant after it closed in October, he didn’t take much time before jumping into a new concept. Two months later, Ledbetter has opened his own sandwich spot, Re-Voaked, which lives at 12½ S. Euclid Ave.
From the buoyant, 2000s-era college music playing from the speakers – think Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson and the Red Hot Chili Peppers – to the restaurant’s late-night hours on weekends, Re-Voaked has a decidedly different vibe from Ledbetter’s previous gig.
The heart of Re-Voaked is its sandwiches, and its location makes them a prime grab-and-go item for Barnes-Jewish staff, students and visitors.
Re-Voaked’s menu of 13 sandwiches includes the meat-heavy Everyone Has That One Italian Friend, a banh mi, a tomato, burrata and pesto sandwich called People & Their Pesto and the Meatless Daze, which features walnut taco meat.
Three beef-centric sandwiches – For the Love Of Beef, Approaching Last Beef Option and Last Beef Option – offer traditional takes on the protein; the Swine & Dine takes peppered bacon and pork belly as its stars, and is bolstered by tomato gastrique, bacon-onion jam and bacon aioli. Bread options include country white, Italian hoagie, rye, wheat and gluten free.
A small breakfast menu includes a meat, egg and cheese and a tomato and burrata, both of which can come in wrap or sandwich form. The Lox Without Bagels is a Midwestern take – enter crispy onions – on a New York classic. Pancake skewer options include a banana and Nutella and a bacon and apple in addition to a standard iteration served with maple syrup.
Re-Voaked is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. On Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant reopens from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Here’s a first look at Re-Voaked.
