Filippo's Italian Kitchen & Bar
, the new restaurant from Joe Sanfilippo of downtown mainstay J.F. Sanfilippo's (705 North Broadway; 314-621-7213)
, will hold its grand opening this Sunday, November 6, from 6-10 p.m. at 120 Chesterfield Valley Drive in Chesterfield. The cost is $100 per person, including food and cocktails, with all proceeds benefiting the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
When Gut Check spoke with Sanfilippo in August
, he told us Filippo's would appeal to J.F. Sanfilippo's fans in west county, and the menu on the Filippo's website
features dishes drawn from the classic Italian/Italian-American canon, like veal saltimbocca, chicken Parmigiana and fettuccine Alfredo.
Filippo's is currently in a soft-opening phase leading up to its grand opening Sunday. Beginning Monday, November 7, the restaurant will be open for dinner Monday through Saturday, with lunch service coming sometime in the new year.
For reservations at the grand opening, call 636-536-6833.
