- I happened to drive by Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium (1170 South Big Bend Boulevard; 314-932-5414) today at the height of what should have been its rush only to see the restaurant dark, with a sign on the door.
Reason for concern?
Thankfully, no (unless some Fozzie's sandwiches were part of your planned Super Bowl spread). The sign states that Fozzie's is closed through Monday, February 7, for a "family celebration" and will reopen for its regular hours on Tuesday, February 8.
- Meanwhile, I checked back in this afternoon with Luciano's Trattoria (172 Carondelet Plaza, Clayton; 314-863-9969), which has been closed since a pipe burst two weeks ago. Office manager Tiffany Willis told me that the water damage was a bit worse than originally believed.
"We are starting construction next week," she says, adding that the restaurant hopes to reopen in about two weeks.
