FoodWire: Pi, Pi and More Pi
Meanwhile, Sauce Magazine reports on its blog that the new Kirkwood location will feature a milkshake bar. Niche pastry chef Mathew Rice is consulting on the effort.
Finally, the worst-kept secret in the local restaurant scene was that the third location of Pi will open in what is now the Sapphire Pan-Asian space at 4753 McPherson Avenue. At Off the Menu, Joe Bonwich reports that Sapphire will close this Saturday, September 12. Pi is also opening a bar in the currently unoccupied space next-door to Sapphire. Sommers told me he personally began demolition on this project yesterday.
