FoodWire: New Restaurant in Billy Sherman's Deli Space?


I was on Olive Boulevard, heading back to the office from Chesterfield a few hours ago, when a sign for something called Joo Joo's caught my eye. The sign, which in smaller print describes Joo Joo's as a restaurant and karaoke bar, is located at 12937 Olive Boulevard, the former Billy Sherman's Deli. This is in the same strip mall as Astoria, Pita Plus and St. Louis Rotisserie.

There were construction permits posted in the front window, but no work was being done inside, though it did appear as if some work had been done recently. At any rate, I haven't been able to find out anything more about this place. Anyone else heard anything?
