Sapore Italian Café (Baxter Road & Andersohn Drive, Manchester; 636-256-3949) announced this week that it will move to Kirkwood next month.
The restaurant posted the following its Facebook page on Tuesday:
We are excited to announce we are moving to Kirkwood mid-November! Our new home will be in the Woodbine Center at 451 South Kirkwood Road next to Ginger Bay Salon!
Along with our restaurant, bar and beautiful patio, Sapore will be able to host events up to 85 people in a private setting!
(A tip o' the hat to George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine for the news.)
Currently occupying the space at 451 South Kirkwood Road is Trattoria Branica.
Gut Check called Trattoria Branica, but the employee with whom we spoke was unable to provide any information. Ligaya Figueras of Sauce, however, reports that Branica will close on Thursday, October 25.
