Tavolo V, Cork Wine Bar and The Ready Room have permanently closed
The once-temporary shutdowns of many restaurants and bars in St. Louis amid the coronavirus crisis has led to permanent closures.
Italian restaurant Tavolo V at 6118 Delmar Blvd. in The Loop has closed its doors.
“With Washington University being gone and The Pageant and Delmar Hall not booking concerts, we didn’t think that the Delmar Loop was going to bounce back as quickly as other markets would,” said owner Michael Del Pietro, going on to point out that students and their families as well as concert-goers made up a large amount of Tavolo’s business.
Cork Wine Bar in Ferguson announced yesterday, Monday, May 11, that it is closing at 423 S. Florissant Road. “We have been unable to recover after the impact this pandemic has had on our small business,” their Facebook post said.
The bar received new life in April of last year when The Muddled Pig owners Austin Hamblin and Michelle Allender took it over. A new menu included dishes like smoked margherita pizza, shrimp and grits, al pastor cauliflower tacos, broccoli Benedict and house-made focaccia.
