New Day Gluten Free to open Clayton cafe in December


Just weeks after New Day Gluten Free closed its doors in Ellisville, owners Garrett and Kelly Beck have announced a new location at 7807 Clayton Road. As Sauce reported in September, the Becks planned to find a new home for their dedicated gluten-free, peanut-free restaurant after nearly six years. Kelly Beck said she hopes to open doors in December.


Beck said the kitchen in the new space includes equipment they were missing at the Ellisville location, including a fryer. But former patrons should expect to see the usual pizza, pasta and sandwiches when New Day reopens. “We want to make sure people can get their favorites,” Beck said. “Then once we’re open for a little bit, we can try making some new things like our own chips.”


The 3,800-square-foot Clayton location will more than double New Day’s capacity with 50 seats in the new space. “This location gives us the gathering place I’d always envisioned,” Beck said. “The kitchen is bigger, and we’ll have more room for catering, plus a patio that can seat about 25.”


The Becks have added a new partner, and are working to get the necessary capital needed to complete the new space. “There’s very little we need to do,” Beck said. “The kitchen is great, and the front needs to be painted in our colors. It’s mostly just cleaning we need to do for gluten-free and peanut-free certifications.”
