Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium Now Open


  • Ian Froeb
George Mahe first reported on Feast (the blog) that the awesomely named Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium has opened at 1170 South Big Bend Boulevard in Richmond Heights. The small free-standing building -- formerly a Chinese restaurant, thoroughly renovated -- includes some outdoor seating and, in back, a vegetable garden.

I got my hands on a copy of the menu, which ranges from classics like a turkey club, chicken parm and reuben to originals like "The Pretzel" (ham, pepperjack cheese and honey mustard on a pretzel roll" and "The Gracey" (falafel, roasted peppers, grilled onions, baby spinach and an artichoke-spinach spread). There are gyros, burgers -- including the Minnesota specialty "Juicy Lucy," stuffed with cheese -- and hot dogs. Everything is under $8 (before tax).

Fozzie's is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily. Call 314-932-5414 for more info.
