Second act?

Reggie's Backstage now occupies the space at 522 North Grand Boulevard, directly across from the Fox Theatre. Does that address and facade look familiar? It should. Last fall, it opened as the Tuxedo Room. That restaurant closed early this year, reportedly due to financial troubles. (The mediocre food and awful service I found on my visits probably didn't help.)

You can reach Reggie's Backstage at 314-535-5577. The recording at this number doesn't provide any information about hours, nor did I spot a menu in the window, so I can't confirm much more about the "new" spot yet. I'll check back later today and let you know what I find out.
