Wacked Out Weiner, The Corner Street Food open doors
Sushi Bistro will close, Flament Co.’s The Place eyes downtown
It’s summertime, which means there are plenty of openings, closings and coming-soons to report. Here’s a brief rundown of some of the latest in the St. Louis restaurant scene:
• The Corner Street Food had its grand opening on Saturday, June 16, at 2605 Washington Blvd. Husband-and-wife team Cornell and Jamila Boone are serving specialties like build-your-own burgers, fried shrimp, wings and funnel cake fries.
• Wacked Out Weiner has begun slinging dogs in the Delmar Loop at 6301 Delmar Blvd., formerly home to Snarf’s. The restaurant is open daily and features hot dogs and sausages with more than 30 toppings to choose from.
• Sushi Bistro at 343 S. Kirkwood Road will close doors on Saturday, June 30. Owner Jimmy Li said the lease is up, and the new rent is too expensive. He has no immediate plans to reopen in another location, though that may be an option down the line.
• Flament Co.’s The Place has made a name for itself in O’Fallon, Illinois, for its pizzas, salads and subs. Now it’s getting ready to enter the culinary scene across the river, as reported by the Riverfront Times. Co-owner Cory Flament said he expects to open doors at the new location at 418 S. Tucker Blvd., in mid-July.
