Molly's in Soulard Reopens For Dinner Service



For the last month, Molly's in Soulard has been operating on shortened hours, preparing to reopen fully with an expanded bar and brand-new cocktail and food menus.

Jim Crandall, the bistro bar manager, tells Gut Check that he has created an expansive cocktail menu, consisting largely of re-imaginings of classic drinks. Crandall is especially excited about his "bijou blanc," a contemporary answer to the classic bijou cocktail. (The bijou, popular in those heady days before Prohibition, is a martini-type beverage that makes use of sweet vermouth rather than dry, along with orange bitters and green Chartreuse. Here, go make your own.)

Meanwhile, Molly's chef Bryan Flaxbeard helped to re-create the bistro's dinner menu, largely redirecting its focus from entrées to small plates.
