FoodWire: New Chef at Mangia, New Ozzie's Downtown


A couple of restaurant tidbits for this short week: First, Mangia Italiano (3145 South Grand Boulevard; website) has brought David Timney on board as executive chef. Timney was both executive chef and a partner at the original Balaban's in the Central West End. Second, the St. Louis Business Journal reports that a new Ozzie's Sports Bar & Grill is slated to open by Opening Day at 1511 Washington Avenue. The new restaurant replaces the original Ozzie's at Westport Plaza, which closed in October.
