Well, this is a bummer. South Grand Gyro Express
(5622 South Grand Boulevard) has closed "for renovations until further notice," according to a sign posted on its front door. As you can see from the photograph above, newspaper covers the windows. I reviewed South Grand Gyro Express
in September of last year and liked it very much. In fact, the restaurant's gyro sandwich was #97
in my list of 100 Favorite St. Louis Dishes
A recording at restaurant's phone number (314-481-1033) confirms the closing and asks those with catering or party requests to leave a message, which gives some hope that this is, indeed, a temporary closing.
