Tidbits: Dierdorf & Hart's at Westport Plaza to Close, Alpha Brewing Company Now Open



- Dierdorf & Hart's Steak House (323 Westport Plaza, Maryland Heights; 314-878-1801) will close after 30 years. George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine broke the news with confirmation from owner Lou Garesche.

Garesche was unavailable when Gut Check reached the restaurant yesterday. According to Mahe's report, the restaurant has yet to choose an exact closing date. Its lease ends in June.

The downtown location of the steak house founded by the two St. Louis (football) Cardinal greats closed several years ago.
