Tidbits from the Sweet Divine, Salt, Manila Bistro



It has been a busy week for restaurant news. We're still playing catch-up. Here are some more tidbits:

- Jenna Siebert, the owner and operator of cupcake truck The Sweet Divine (@TheSweetDivine; 636-942-9200) announced in April that she would be opening a storefront location at 4521 South Kingshighway Boulevard.

Now comes word that the brick-and-mortar Sweet Divine will open this coming Tuesday, June 26. Regular hours will be 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.

- How about some honest-to-goodness food -- as opposed to business -- news from Salt (4356 Lindell Boulevard; 314-932-5787). Feast reports that new head chef Josh Roland launched his new menu yesterday evening. The menu includes some of Salt's best-known dishes (the scallops and duck-fat frites) as well as new fare from Roland.
