Tidbits: More Crushed Red, No More Pazzo's, Buy the Feed Me Truck
- Crushed Red (8007 Maryland Avenue, Clayton; 314-725-8007), the wildly popular fast-casual restaurant that opened last February, is set to add new locations. George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine reports that the pizza-and-salad restaurant will open this spring at 140 South Kirkwood Road in downtown Kirkwood. Crushed Red is also eyeing the long-dormant Pasta House Co. at 313 North Euclid Avenue in the Central West End.
- Does that 140 South Kirkwood Road address ring a bell? It's been home to several restaurants over the past few years, most recently Michael Del Pietro's Pazzo's Pizzeria. Pazzo's is now closed, but fans of the pizza there can find similar pies at Del Pietro's other establishments, including Sugo's Spaghetteria (10419 Clayton Road, Frontenac; 314-569-0400) and Tavolo V (6118 Delmar Boulevard; 314-721-4333).
- We learned last month that the food truck Feed Me Banh Mi (@FeedMeTruck) was calling it quits after a year. Well, if you've always wanted to buy a food truck -- or you're a (somewhat scarily) devoted fan who'd like a really expensive souvenir of it brief life -- you can purchase Feed Me Banh Mi for a cool $66,000.
