A few months ago Riverbend Restaurant & Bar (701 Utah Street; 314-664-8443) owner Sam Kogos lamented to us about his tiny, fourteen-by-fourteen kitchen and his off-the-beaten path location near Cherokee Street. "It's not an easy location to find. I'm not sitting in the Loop or the Central West End -- we're really thankful for the readership and the people who actually come in."
But that's all about to change. Kogos tells Gut Check he's moving into the recently vacated Harvest space at 1059 South Big Bend Boulevard in Richmond Heights.
