Steven Caravelli is leaving Sleek for Araka.
A few interesting news items over the past couple of days. Monarch (7401 Manchester Road, 314-644-3995) will celebrate its grand reopening on Monday, August 2, according to a Tweet from the restaurant. Monarch is currently undergoing renovations. When reopened, it will feature a new bistro menu drawing upon the Louisiana heritage of executive chef Josh Galliano.

George Mahe broke the news at Feast that Steven Caravelli will leave his post as executive chef of Sleek to become the executive chef at Araka (131 Carondelet Plaza, Clayton; 314-725-6777). Caravelli, whose work at Hubert Keller's steakhouse has gained increasing attention over the past year, replaces Mark Curran, who was charged last month with burglarizing the restaurant.

Finally, Joe Bonwich reports at Eat at Joe's that Skip Steele and Niki Puto of midtown barbecue mecca Pappy's Smokehouse plan to open a new, as-yet-unnamed barbecue joint at 1629 South Ninth Street, the former Fat Toney's space. Steele and Puto will continue to work at Pappy's.
