An eagle-eyed colleague noticed signs in the windows of 4501 Manchester Road in Forest Park Southeast's Grove district advertising Crostini Restaurant & Lounge
. Not much more to report on the specifics of this new venture yet -- though the name does suggest an Italian angle -- though stopping by today, I saw a few people working on the interior.
The address was last occupied by the Italian restaurant Mia Rosa
, which closed last summer. If you dined at Mia Rosa, you know that this is a fairly large space. It does appear that Crostini will be using all of that space. More as I learn it.
