PaPPo’s Pizzeria Serves Its Last Pie

PaPPos Pizzeria Serves Its Last Pie

PaPPos Pizzeria and Microbrewery In Midtown Closes

ST. LOUIS, MO/May 10, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) PaPPos Pizzeria – It all happened kind of suddenly and the announcement was made on the restaurant and microbrewery’s Facebook page.  That’s the sad news that PaPPo’s pizzeria and microbrewery, located at 3690 Forest Park Avenue, was planning to close its doors.  It’s another small Midtown business that bit the dust.

PaPPo’s Pizzeria first opened its doors in January 2016 in the former home of Six Row Brewing Company and before that, the original home of Falstaff Brewing Company.  It was the third location of a concept that began four years earlier in Springfield, Missouri.  Last Sunday they served their very last slice of pizza and beer.

The post on Facebook read, “Even though our revenues were gradually increasing, it was not sustainable, and we will be looking at other options in the St. Louis area.”  The post continues, “We are also looking at options to continue to brew our PaPPo’s beers.  We want to thank all of our loyal customers.  We have made many new friends and will forever be grateful for the support.”

Many PaPPo’s diners and Facebook followers were quick to respond with their disappointment, praising the restaurant for its pizza, cookies, pies and very friendly staff.  According to the post, the owners will continue to look at options to continue brewing its beers.

PaPPo’s follows in the footsteps of another brewery trying to make it in St. Louis’ crowded craft beer market, Standard Brewing Company which closed at the end of last month.  The original PaPPo’s in Springfield, Mo., and a second in Osage Beach remain open.

An Authentic Slice of Jersey in South St. Louis – Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza

Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza

Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza offers two locations

St. Louis, MO/January 29, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza – Everyone has their own ideas about what makes a great pizza.  It’s probably one of the most debated dishes in St. Louis.  There’s the great crust debate, thick or thin, crispy or chewy.  Then there’s the dispute over sauce—should it be a little sweet or a little spicy; tomato-based or olive oil?  And then the issue of cheese—should the mozzarella be aged, fresh, or smoked?  Should it be blended with the likes of parmesan, fontina, Muenster, provolone, or Romano?  Or should we just use provel?  Everyone knows the classic St. Louis style pizza has a thin and crispy crust, slightly sweet sauce, and that locally invented provel cheese.  St. Louis natives have had to defend our signature pizza so often that many may not realize that other pizza debates even exist.  Sure we know that deep dish pie they sell in Chicago is a cause of contention (can you really call it pizza if you eat it with a fork?), but it’s not the only style to spark regional conflict.  For instance, there’s the squabble over New York style pizza versus New Jersey style pizza.  Yes, Jersey style pizza is a thing, and you can check it out yourself at one of Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza locations in South St. Louis.

So what’s the difference between the chewy crusted New York style pizza and the chewy crusted New Jersey style pizza?  An old pal from Jersey used to tell me the difference was in the water.  But Feraro’s Pizza owner Jon Feraro has said a Jersey style crust is slightly thicker than New York style.  And the sauce is richer and sweeter.  St. Louis natives might not notice those subtle differences, but they will still appreciate the chewy, tasty East Coast pie.

Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza is a mother and son operation.  Both Nancy Feraro and son Jon are from New Jersey.  They spent their summers along the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore, and opened Feraro’s in order to bring these wonderful memories to St. Louis diners.  Everything is authentic Jersey—from their homemade pizza to specialties like Taylor Ham sandwiches and Zeppole.  These flavors come straight from the coast.  The restaurant is hung with images that transport customers to the Jersey Shore, and they even pipe in Bon Jovi, Sinatra, and the Boss.

Feraro’s is fabulously fresh pizza.  That’s because everything is made from scratch.  They even grate the mozzarella cheese themselves.  The crust is perfectly crisp on bottom because of the brick-bottom oven they use, and it’s wonderfully chewy because of traditional hand-tossing.  In classic northeastern style, the pizzas are large (14, 16 & 18 inch pies).  Order just a slice or a whole pie.  The giant 18″ pizza specials add to the atmosphere with names like The Boss (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, black olives, and garlic), The Soprano (pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatballs, ham, and smoked bacon), Old Blue Eyes (a white pizza with ricotta, garlic, mozzarella, parmesan, and a drizzle of olive oil), and The Jersey Style (smoked ham, fresh tomato, onion, hot peppers, and garlic).

Besides pizza, Feraro’s does justice to rolled stromboli sandwiches and to calzone too.  They offer a respectable toasted rav, plus fresh salads, garlic knots, cannoli and zeppole (Italian donuts).  They also do spaghetti.  Get it with classic tomato sauce, or have meat sauce, or meat balls, or sausage, or mushrooms.  By the way, those meatballs (mom’s recipe) are available as sliders or on a sandwich, and of course, on pizza!

Feraro’s outgrew their original Soulard location (1862 South 10th Street), and in September 2013, they moved to a more spacious spot at 7704 Ivory Ave. in the Patch/Carondelet neighborhood of South St. Louis.  The south city location offers dine-in, carry out, and delivery with two bars and a music venue.  The extra space lets Feraro recreate a little of that Jersey Shore fun in his south city restaurant.  The Patch location is closed on Mondays.  They’re open Sunday, plus Tuesday – Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Feraro’s second location in Concord Village at 11726 Baptist Church Road in Sappington has a slightly smaller menu, offering carry out and delivery only.  The South County location is open seven days a week: Sunday – Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

St. Louis-style pizza lovers will find Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza is a big, chewy, flavorful slice that you can actually fold without breaking. (Really, who knew you should fold pizza?)  They’ll find a little bit of a party feel too, like a vacay up east.  Jersey transplants, like my friend, will find Feraro’s is a slice of home.

STL.Pizza is online and soliciting vendors

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.Pizza) STL.Pizza was recently sold and has now been developed as an online ordering system, representing pizzeria’s and restaurants that serve pizza or flat-bread across the St. Louis metro area.  It doesn’t cost anything for restaurants to participate in the program unless something is sold.

It was designed with the consumer in mind, making it easy to shop for pizza, pizza delivery, pizza deals, pizza coupons or other Italian cuisines across the St. Louis metro area.  An easy to remember website, STL.PIZZA.  It doesn’t get any easier than that.  However, the main purpose in purchasing this premium domain is that it will rank well in organic search results if the website is properly designed.

The domain name was purchased and resold by a local web design firm, St. Louis Media, LLC.  The domain was sold for an undisclosed amount of money to a local private buyer that has since launched the online ordering website.  The concept is simple, they market your pizza for a percentage of revenue they are responsible for generating.  If they don’t sell any pizza/food, you don’t owe them any fees.

The new owners are committed to aggressively marketing the website for maximum online visibility and traffic.  They plan on marketing the website using email, online advertising such as Google AdWords and Facebook ads, press releases and much more.  “The owner will do everything necessary to properly market the website”, says Myers with St. Louis Media, LLC.

Participating restaurants will pay 10% of sales received from STL.Pizza to become a participating restaurant.  There are possibly some small setup fees and an optional wireless printer that is used to accept orders.  Orders can also be received via fax, email, text or any device that has Internet access with access to a website dashboard that display orders.  Customers can also pay online.

The structure is designed with small pizzeria’s, or restaurants that offer pizza/flat-bread, in mind by pooling a groups marketing efforts together to maximize the impact of their marketing in order to compete with the major national chains.  Locals are welcome to join.
