Pi Pizzeria Team Opening Gringo, a Taco Joint, in Central West End
What would Pi Pizzeria (multiple locations) owners Chris Sommers and Frank Uible do next after opening four sit-down restaurants as well as a takeout-only location, expanding to the nation's capital and operating (and then retiring) two successful food trucks?
If you said, "Open a taco joint," step up and claim your winnings.
As Evan Benn of the Post-Dispatch first reported Sunday night, Sommers and Uible plan to open Gringo, a taco joint, at 398 North Euclid Avenue in the Central West End, currently the home of Rothschild Antiques.
Gut Check caught up with Sommers and Pi corporate chef Steven Caravelli via email to learn more about Gringo.
Why a taco joint?
Sommers: We feel this side of the CWE lacks great mexican food and our neighbors have been asking for it. We've been tossing around this idea for a few years now. As a company, we have incredible talent and passion for Mexican food throughout our ranks, and this provides an opportunity for these people to move up in the organization.
