Inside Pairings in Des Peres. | Dave Pollmann
Des Peres is getting its first wine bar next month. Pairings Wine & Dessert Bar is under construction at the former site of Jilly's Cupcakes A-Go-Go at 1131 Colonnade Center, as first reported by Feast. Owner Dave Pollmann actually ran the Jilly's outpost until it shut down earlier this year. Pollmann hopes to bring a unique concept to Des Peres -- fine dining that isn't at the mall.
"We've come up with the concept so that we can feature a lot of these wines paired with entries and seasonal menu items," Pollmann tells Gut Check. "We're really gonna focus on the wine and food and let people experience new wines and have some finer dining options in Des Peres, which they really don't have. It's a lot of bar food around here."More »
