Bogart's Smokehouse Opens Today


It might not be strong enough to overwhelm the beer brewing down on Pestalozzi, but there is a powerful whiff of woodsmoke emanating from Soulard today: Bogart's Smokehouse, the long-awaited sibling to Pappy's Smokehouse, is slated to open this morning at 1627 South 9th Street.

Bogart's features Pappy's vets Skip Steele (pitmaster) and Niki Puto (general manager). The menu offers the expected barbecue standards as well as prime rib, pastrami and other specialties.

Gut Check has dispatched one of our most trusted operatives to file one of our new First Look reports on Bogart's. But if you can't wait till then, we understand.
