A couple of tidbits from the past week...
Soulard restaurant and bar Gladstone's (1800 South Tenth Street; 314-231-6339)
has closed. The Messenger reports
that Gladstone's final day of business was Saturday, June 25. According to the Messenger
report, damage to the building from the recent rainstorms was the final factor in its owners' decision to close.
Meanwhile, Joe Bonwich of the Post-Dispatch reports
that a restaurant called Tortilla Grille
will take over the former Wehbe's Safari Cafe
space at 201 North Sixth Street downtown.
