FoodWire Double Whammy: Revival Closing, McLozzi Deli Closed
The news is mixed, however: Mahe reports that one of the current partners, Tom Powers, has assembled a new ownership group that will reopen the restaurant with a new name and a menu from St. Louis chef-at-large Mike Johnson within the next two weeks.
I liked Revival very much when I reviewed it last year; also last year, the RFT awarded it Best Comfort Food.
Meanwhile, Sauce reports that Benton Park's McLozzi Deli (2870 McNair Avenue; Web site) has closed. This was one of my favorite spots in town to pick up lunch for my wife and me, and the RFT awarded it Best Delicatessan in 2007 and Best Sandwiches last year. On my last visit, only a couple of weeks ago, I did note that the restaurant had cut its hours. Still, this sucks.
