-Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium (1170 South Big Bend Boulevard, Richmond Heights; 314-932-5414) will open a second location in Des Peres.
Hat tip to George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine, who broke the news. The new edition of the wildly -- and, in this critic's estimation, deservedly -- popular Fozzie's will be located at 11656 Manchester Road.
Lucas tells Gut Check that the new space will be much bigger than the cramped original, with about 1,400 square feet and projected seating for 40. Lucas is aiming for a mid- to late-June opening.
