The owners of Local Harvest Grocery (3108 Morgan Ford Road; 314-865-5260) and Local Harvest Cafe & Catering (3137 Morgan Ford Road; 314-772-8815) announced in April that they would open a new downtown location of the cafe and a combined grocery store and cafe in Kirkwood.
The downtown location is just about ready to go.
Local Harvest Downtown will be open from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The restaurant plans to offer weekend brunch service beginning next month.
When we spoke with co-owner Patrick Horine in April, he told us that the menu, overseen by chef Clara Moore, will be essentially the same as the Tower Grove South location, with a few seasonal variations and a few additions that the new kitchen's larger size will allow.
