Pangea to Bring Global Cuisine to New Town this Fall

Pangea to Bring Global Cuisine to New Town this Fall

Chef Jessie Gilroy Leaving Sidney Street for Own Digs

ST. CHARLES, MO/July 9, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Pangea was theoretical supercontinent that made up all of the land on Earth before the dinosaurs roamed.  Everything was Pangea, and for land dwellers, Pangea was everything.  So, it’s an interesting name Chef Jessie Gilroy has chosen for the new restaurant she’s opening this fall in New Town at St. Charles.  Pangea at 3245 Rue Royale, St. Charles will be an eclectic neighborhood eatery, offering upscale food in a casual atmosphere.

Gilroy worked most recently as sous chef at Kevin Nashan’s famed Sidney Street Cafe.  She also spent years learning everything she could while working in the kitchens of some of St. Louis’ favorite restaurants including Charlie Gitto’s on The Hill, The Tavern Kitchen & Bar, Cucina Pazzo, and Peacemaker Lobster & Crab.

The new restaurant will feature an eclectic menu that reflects her own eclectic culinary taste.  Gilroy says she loves all cuisines and really can’t pick a favorite, so that will be reflected in Pangea’s menu.  It will draw on a mix of cuisines, including Indian, French, Italian, and Spanish, fusing the elements of several into unique, cohesive dishes that introduce diners to new flavors blended with the familiar.  She chose the name Pangea to embody this global approach to cooking.

She also wants to create a restaurant that is at once comfortable, but with an elevated menue.  She calls her concept “casual fine dining.”  In an interview with The Vital Voice, Gilroy said she wants to give people access to the kind of food you find in a fine dining establishment, but without the linen tablecloths, dress-up clothes, and budget-blowing prices.

Gilroy got the keys to her new restaurant earlier this month.  Since the space that will be Pangea was once a restaurant (the Cornerstone Cafe), Gilroy says it won’t need much of a rebuild, just some cosmetic changes.  You can follow Pangea’s progress on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pangeaworldfusion/.  Gilroy says she expects to open in early fall.

Fire-Damaged Lewis & Clark – Plans to Reopen Soon

Fire-Damaged Lewis & Clark’s Plans to Reopen Soon

Historic St. Charles Restaurant Set to Rise from the Ashes – Lewis & Clark

St. Charles, MO/June 8, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Lewis & Clark – Three months is a long time in the restaurant business.  It feels even longer when that time is spent rebuilding after disaster strikes, instead of serving your customers.  It was just about three months ago when disaster struck Lewis & Clark’s Restaurant at 217 South Main Street in St. Charles.  It came in the form of fire in the wee hours of Wednesday, March 9, 2017.  The three-story, historic building (dating to the late 1800s) was saved, but the restaurant suffered extensive damage and was forced to close temporarily.  Now, after three-months of rebuilding, this Main Street mainstay is about to reopen for business.

Lewis & Clark’s first opened along Historic Main Street in the mid 1980s. Dan Badock bought the popular St. Charles restaurant and public house in 2012.  The restaurant was already well known for its classic American fare, including great burgers and white chicken chili.  Badock elevated the cuisine, by adding upscale selections like prime rib, filet mignon, and grilled salmon, while maintaining the restaurant’s comfortable, family-friendly vibe and reasonable prices.  He says it’s important to him that families continue to feel comfortable dining at Lewis & Clark’s.  When customers return, they will find the menu and the hours haven’t changed.  Lewis & Clark’s will be open Sunday – Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Fire-Damaged Lewis & Clark - Plans to Reopen Soon

The restaurant’s enormous three-story brick building has alway provided ample dining and event space with big picture windows, and balcony seating that offers nice views of the Missouri River and historic Main Street.  Badock says having to rebuild after the fire gave him and his wife the chance to freshen up the restaurant’s decor, and give it a nice makeover.  “While we were down,” he said, “we were able to do some other really nice renovations.”  That includes a new cedar deck and a fresh new look in the restaurant itself.  Badock says one of the best features of the new design is that even though it’s a large space, they purposely created plenty of cozy nooks.  That gives the place a more intimate, comfortable feel.

Besides daily lunch and dinner service, Lewis & Clark’s has been a popular events venue for decades, and once it reopens, it will continue to be a go-to location for wedding receptions, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, anniversary parties, and other social gatherings.  The restaurant specializes in customized menus for gatherings of 20 or more guests.  Badock says they’re already booking reservations for events in July, August, September, and beyond.  Reservations and party arrangements are being accepted by telephone at (636) 947-3334.

Badock says he expects things to go fairly smoothly when they reopen later this month.  One of the reasons Lewis & Clark’s can get back to business as soon as the physical rebuild is complete, is because they were able to retain most of their staff through the rebuild.  The restaurant and event venue normally employs about 45 people.  Badock says he’s glad he was able to keep most of his staff employed throughout the rebuilding process.  That’s meant less disruption for their lives, and it’ll mean a quicker return to normal once the restaurant doors open again.

Badock says they have set the target date for their reopening as Wednesday, June 21st.  He says he’s really hopeful they will be ready to get back to serving their customers by that date.  But rebuilding an entire three-story restaurant is a daunting task, with many, many moving parts.  So, Badock is advising customers to keep an eye on the restaurant’s FaceBook page for updates, and to watch their progress.  He says he’ll post an announcement there if they have to push back that opening date.  Even with the constructions still underway, it’s nice to know that this little slice of St. Charles will soon be returning to normal.
