A new restaurant offering "American fusion with a hint of soul" has opened in Midtown.
Aromas Restaurant Sports Bar & Grill (2617 Washington Avenue, 314-83305022) replaces Patois Eatery and Social Lounge, a Jamaican-inflected spot that opened last April and closed its doors before the year's end. (Before that, it was a nightclub called the Rustic Goat.) Jessica Cross, an assistant manager at the new eatery, said it had begun hosting special events at the end of January and moved to a period of soft opening a few weeks ago.While Aromas is still a few weeks away from securing its liquor license, Cross says it's currently open daily from noon to 10 p.m., offering a full menu and a host of amusements, including plenty of TVs tuned to sports, pool, darts, foosball and even PacMan.
