The restaurant received praise from several St. Louis food critics for its self-titled “sexy magic food.”

Unfortunately for St. Louis tapas lovers, Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar has closed.

The restaurant, which opened in Spring 2010 in the South Grand commercial district, received praise from several St. Louis food critics for its self-titled “sexy magic food,” which included items like tapas, sandwiches, sliders, desserts, and a variety of wines, domestic, import, and craft beers, and specialty cocktails.

The restaurant announced its closing on its Facebook page on Monday morning stating that “they will no longer be servin’ up everyone’s favorite Shrimp and Grits,. We wished we would have had more time to and had hoped to plan a big ol’ party and go out with a bang; unfortunately time just wasn’t on our side. Again, we graciously thank you for all the support through the years and certainly to those of you that made it out last week for a quiet last hurrah…Keep it sexy folks…farewell…”

The announcement was met by a series of disappointed comments from the restaurant’s Facebook fans, many of who claimed that Mojo was their favorite restaurant in St. Louis.


Three Kings Pub Nabs Former Mosaic Space in Des Peres

Three Kings Pub describes itself as “upscale pub food with a Mediterranean twist” but there are more jewels in its crown than that.

Since the pub's inception in the Delmar Loop almost three years ago, owners Derek Deaver, Derek Fleig, and Ryan Pinkston are now fully dialed in, so much so they’ve announced a second location, at 11925 Manchester in Des Peres (left), the former Mosaic Tapas. (Mosaic’s owner, Claus Schmitz, closed both the Des Peres and Downtown restaurants simultaneously, abruptly, and dramatically last September. Downtown was leased to Michon's Smokehouse just last week.The only other location, a licensed unit located on Concourse A at St. Louis International Airport, remains open.)

Deaver tells Relish the remodel will be extensive and “closer to a gut rehab” than a quickie, paint-and-paper job. The resulting space will have pine floors, more reclaimed wood and brick--“a modern-rustic look,” according to Deaver. Helen Lee of Tao + Lee Associates (Wapango, ARAKA, Bocci Bar, BARcelona) is spearheading the redesign.

The Three Kings in the Loop has a sidewalk patio and a small, alleyway courtyard Des Peres counters with a large patio off the right side of the building (see above).

The beverage program at Three Kings is well-curated, with 22 revolving brews on draft (updated on Twitter) plus 40 bottled beers, a “one-of-a-kind beer cellar list” (lots of limiteds and seasonals), house-made liquor infusions, and a respectable wine list, with 18 glass pour selections available.

Three Kings' menu is whimsical (Cap’n Crunch Shrimp, Buffalo Chicken Toasted Ravs) but the partners are equally serious about quality: at the annual UCB Heartland WingDing, its chicken wings earned two First Placetrophies—for Best Traditional and Best Specialty Wing (for a wing fried in waffle batter). The trio is also focuse on sourcing locally-raised produce and meats, thereby reducing their carbon footprint: the pepper jack cheese bratwurst on the Dirty Bastard Bratzel, for example, comes from south St. Louis' own G&W Bavarian Sausage Company.

Deaver says the same approach will be taken in Des Peres, “but with a little more refinement and more of an emphasis on kids' meals—healthy kids' meals.”

Burgers have always been important to Deaver, too (his namesake restaurant, Deaver’s Restaurant & Sports Bar, garnered a “Best Burgers in St. Louis” nod from SLM), and that focus will also hold true at the new location. We can only hope The Pogue Mahone—with bacon, caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, two cheeses and a fried egg all on a pretzel bun (left)--will makes the journey to Des Peres. With St. Paddy’s Day on the doorstep, an explanation is in order--Pogue Mahone is Irish for “Kiss My Arse.”

Demo hammers start swinging on Monday, and with any luck, there'll be burgers and brews by early June.


Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar in St. Louis Closes - Recipes

By Michael Renner • Photos by Ashley Gieseking // September 1, 2009

What does a wildly successful restaurant do when it’s up to its rafters in rave reviews and national recognition and so damn popular it’s nearly impossible to get a reservation? Serve cocktails. And small plates of terribly creative snacks all made on the premises. That’s the idea behind Niche Taste Bar, a tiny square of a restaurant attached to its big brother next door.

Unless you’ve been holed up in Gitmo for the past four years, you know Niche either by reputation or experience – hopefully the latter. You know that chef and owner Gerard Craft and his crack team have raised the bar on what it means to eat locally. St. Louis owes much of its recent evolution into a food-centric town to the innovative cooking of chefs like Craft, whose simple yet daring approaches in the kitchen and partnerships with local farmers have garnered him numerous accolades, including Food & Wine magazine’s Best New Chefs last year and, this year, a James Beard Award nomination for Best Chef Midwest.

Craft envisions Taste as place to start or end your evening: Pop in, grab a drink and a snack, move on. Bar and grill, sushi bar, tapas all are Taste’s influences. This tiny space – only 18 seats between the bar and one short wooden communal table, a chalkboard wait list near the door (no reservations), the restroom next door at Niche – is true to the tapas bar ideal, a place emphasizing drink and numerous tastes of food. In the U.S., tapas has grown to mean larger servings, something to appease the American appetite. Here, it’s complex drinks for sipping and bits of simple, interesting food for nibbling. One leaves satisfied, but not stuffed.

Old-fashioned Edison-style light bulbs shine down over the bar for a speakeasy feel, subway tile lines the back wall, a chalkboard wall – with its prominent outline of a hog – lists the day’s specials, and the tiny, open prep station makes you wonder where all this food comes from. Food is prepared in Niche’s kitchen with the final prep work done behind Taste’s bar on a couple of hot plates, induction burners and an immersion circulator. A charcuterie master tends his meat slicer, carefully arranging coppa, country ham, heart salami and saucisson, five slices each, on a large cutting board another chef cleans radishes. Sit at the L-shaped bar and it’s all very cool to watch. That intimacy, the connection between chef and diner and the conviviality a small space affords, is like sitting in the kitchen of a friend’s house, chatting it up as they do the work.

If a wine bar serving little food is called an enoteca, then Taste is a cocktailteca. Or a drinkteca. Or whatever word conveys the fact that Taste is equally a bar, only this one focuses on classic cocktails. As an exclamation point, Craft lured Ted Kilgore, the mad mixologist from Monarch, to run the drinks show. Just watching Kilgore mix a drink or listening to him describe some arcane aspect of drink mixing is worth the price of admission, were there one. But while those cocktails are amazing, I found it difficult to match them with the equally delicious small plates, like roasted and chilled octopus with potato and chile. The roasting and chilling make for a lovely chewy-tender texture, yet while I noshed and sipped my rye whiskey cocktail, what I really wanted was a bone-dry Champagne or Spanish rosé. But, true to the cocktail emphasis – and the sip and snack idea – there are only three wines by the glass at Taste: BIN 36 Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and they aren’t listed on the menu. Made by Hahn Estate wines for BIN 36, one of Chicago’s premier enotecas, these are no weak-kneed private label wines. (Editor’s note: Since Michael’s visits, Taste has added a small wine list of about 10 selections.)

But get past the food-drink pairing conundrum – as I did – because the menu offers enough varied flavors that something will complement Kilgore’s creations. (Additionally, challenging Kilgore to create a drink that pairs with your food selections is a worthy, satisfying quest.)

The menu offers its own interesting pairings, like ricotta and pickled beets, a luscious combination of sweet, tangy beets mellowed by house-made creamy ricotta, all perfectly seasoned. Start with a trio of snacks (choose from four) while deciding on drinks. We went with almonds coated with French pepper house-made pickles that will make the Vlasic stork green with envy and egg with green sauce, a deconstructed deviled egg of yolk blended with white anchovy, loads of garlic and fresh herbs topped with a whole white anchovy. Don’t plan on sharing.

Over the course of a couple of visits, we ate our way through the entire menu, satisfying our ADD taste cravings: small crocks of pork and foie pâté and duck rillettes (allow both to reach room temperature for full, decadent fatty flavor), braised rabbit gnocchi (worth two orders), pasture-raised carne cruda (essentially steak tartare coarse-cut so you can actually taste the high-quality meat). From summer vegetables in bacon broth to pig’s tongue to pigwiches – pastry chef Mathew Rice’s bacon buttercream-filled cookies –Taste, as with Niche, loves pork.

And on it went. A cheese plate of, on our visit, Sally Jackson goat’s milk cheese, Mount Tam triple-cream and Prairie Breeze sharp Cheddar with house-made crackers. Spicy pork meatballs. There were things on toast, including a roasted radish bruschetta. More charcuterie of sopressata, pepperoni and Hungarian salami. And it adds up. With small plates coming in at a flat $8 per and drinks averaging $9, a bill could easily balloon. But you’re not there for a full dinner, remember? In addition to pigwiches, sweets include a “pork” pie of the day (lard-based crust, of course) and a sweet of the day. Where the Chess Pie special was crazy good, the Red Velvet Cupcake special hit a rare dull note a beautiful, swirly mound of frosting topped the cupcake, setting up high expectations but delivering a tasteless, unctuous filigree to a usually delightful sweet.

Any St. Louis eatery based on small plates – appetizers, if you will – that doesn’t serve toasted ravioli is enough to make it hip. With Taste, Craft and Kilgore raise the standard – and fill yet another niche. The only problem: You may never want to leave.

Where to order craft cocktails

With a carefully crafted cocktail in hand, spend an evening marveling at the neighborhood’s historic architecture, including the brick archways above the courtyard. 1000 Mississippi.

In Botanical Heights, Olio’s cozy garden patio out back is populated with planters, some used as centerpieces atop the wooden tables. 1634 Tower Grove.

In the mood for a nightcap? Gerard Craft’s speakeasy-style cocktail bar is foolproof, especially if you can snag a spot on the patio (and maybe a plate or two of those cheese curds). 4584 Laclede.

Pergolas, murals, greenery, lunch specials… The patio at The Royale has it all. (Look for live music announcements on social media.) 3132 S. Kingshighway.

The only way to top the weekend Bloody Mary & Mimosa Bar at Sqwires? Sipping a mid-morning cocktail on the pooch-friendly patio. 1415 S. 18th.


New Slushie Bar, Narwhal's Crafted Urban Ice, Will Open Near SLU

For months, business partners Brandon Holzhueter and Brad Merten have been working to perfect their plan to bring a new slushie bar to Midtown St. Louis, in the historic Gerhart Building at Laclede and Vandeventer (3906 Laclede Avenue).


And with the news last night that the city would be shutting down another slushie concept, the Tropical Liqueurs outpost in Soulard, they decided it was finally time to go public.

"We've been quiet a long time, but the news yesterday forced our hand a little bit," Holzhueter says.

They're promising a more upscale version of a concept that Mizzou students have grown to love (even if Soulard has had a slightly different reaction to it).

Narwhal's will offer "a diverse menu of quality frozen alcoholic beverages using hand-crafted ingredients, infusions and purees that are produced in-house and from scratch," according to their press release. There will be no food, but they will encourage "carry in" from local restaurants.

The new "artisan frozen cocktail establishment" will fill 1,900 square feet of the building, which is being completely renovated to include other ground-floor retail, as well as lofts above. There will also be a sizable patio. "If you walk out of IKEA's front doors, and look past Forest Park, you can see where we'll have our patio eventually," Holzhueter promises.

  • The historic building at 3906 Laclede, shown before the major rehab that will transform it into lofts and upscale eateries.

The partners, both 31, have been friends since their days together at Parkway West Middle School. They're quite familiar with the Midtown area, since they own a franchise of a popular sandwich shop nearby (as well as a second location in Creve Coeur), and are excited about how much it's come along in recent years.

But even as the once-neglected neighborhood has added IKEA, Cortex, and other shiny new developments, they've noticed something that's missing: A good place to drink outside.

"It's kind of surprising, but there are not a lot of great patio options," Holzhueter says. "We're hoping that when it's a nice day, everybody will think, 'We've got to go to Narwhal's. They've got the best patio in the neighborhood.'"

The partners hope to open by this summer.

West Seventh Street in St. Paul has long been a bustling thoroughfare.

The space is also a hub for promoting interactive arts and the arts community with live music performances, live figure drawing sessions, an “art material swap” and artists’ marts, according to the website.

Further west, Urban Relic is an occasional and by-appointment gift shop that carries a mix of vintage and artisan pieces.

Next along the street is Mississippi Market, which features organic, fair-trade and non-GMO groceries along with a wellness section for health and body care products. Just west of I-35E, Highland Nursery has been a family-run spot for more than 60 years and is worth a stop for its shop and attached greenhouse.

Then there’s St. Paul Guitar Repair, offering a place to get your instruments repaired as well as a retail area to shop stringed instruments. The selection includes a unique assortment of handmade acoustic and electric guitars.

EAT AND DRINK

West Seventh has long been a hub for quality eats. And the scene keeps getting more interesting as new dining and drinking establishments continue to pop up.

If it’s the classics you’re going for, West Seventh has plenty in the form of family-run supper clubs, steak places and more. Treat yourself to steak at the timeless Mancini’s Char House or supper club fare at Bennett’s Chop and Railhouse. Classic Italian at DeGidio’s is also always a treat, as is heading to the Downtowner Woodfire Grill for steak, chops and fish.

Cossetta Alimentari has been feeding generations of families with a large two story restaurant Thursday, February 22, 2018. (Special to the Pioneer Press: Craig Lassig)

Cossetta Alimentari houses several options for both fancy and casual fare. The building is not only home to the newer Louis Ristorante & Bar for upscale, sit-down Italian, but the long-standing St. Paul institution Cossetta Eatery & Pizzeria, the cafeteria-style spot that has been feeding generations of families with its varied menu of everything from pizzas to pastas. Also housed in the building is the Pasticceria dessert cafe for pastries or gelato along with the market with a deli and grocery store for picking out artisanal foods. Another classic farther west is Day by Day Cafe, which draws crowds for its reliable breakfast and lunch fare.

For a restaurant with a bar and pub feel, Shamrocks Irish Nook is famous for its juicy lucys that use the restaurant’s proprietary Angus chuck. Speaking of Irish nooks, Patrick McGovern’s long has been a destination for drinks and food. Among the many menu items the spot is known for is the roast turkey. Our favorite is an open-face sandwich that comes piled high with turkey and served with mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy.

Another Irish bar and restaurant, The Liffey is a place to grab a pint and dine on a menu of pub classics from fish and chips to burgers.

Farther down West Seventh, several spots that double as restaurants and bars await. Joe and Stan’s is a regular haunt for its casual vibe and menu that includes broasted chicken, specialty pizzas and tasty burgers. Keenan’s Bar is popular not only for its “everybody knows your name” feel, but for serving one of the best coney dogs in the Twin Cities. The burgers are just as popular.

The bike delivery service Brake Bread now has a bricks-and-mortar storefront for its baked goods operation. Head there for some delicious bread, pastries and cookies, as well as locally sourced java.

COFFEE AND DOUGHNUTS, OH MY

The area is not lacking in locations for coffee and pastries, either. Claddagh Coffee is java at the top of its game. In addition to specialty coffees, house-made baked goods, soups, salads and paninis are also offered. Mojo Monkey Donuts has gained a cult following for its always-fresh, top-quality doughnuts and other pastries.

The West Seventh neighborhood is also flowing with places that specialize in brewskis. For more than 20 years, Vine Park Brewing Co. has been offering one of the rare places where you can brew your own beer. The grounds include a brewery — growlers to take home included — as well as provides equipment for brewing your own beer or making your own wine.

Bad Weather Brewing brews are as unpredictable and constantly changing as the weather here, which makes it part of the fun.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention a few of our favorites off West Seventh Street but still in the West Seventh neighborhood.

Forepaugh’s is a classic institution for its pretty, well-composed plates and for the charming Victorian mansion it is housed in. Mucci’s Italian is another favorite for its classic Italian fare in a quaint, neighborhood setting. During the warm weather months, the seasonal Red River Kitchen at City House features a riverside food truck restaurant with plenty of indoor and al fresco dining. Enjoy uninhibited views of the Mississippi River, Harriet Island and paddle boats that take you back in time. The chef-driven menu and draft-only beverage program is also a draw.


Callaloo Tantalizes with Down-home Cooking on the South Side of The Grand Central District

Do you miss great southern comfort food? I know I sure DID. we shall be deprived no more with the latest addition to our growing St Petersburg restaurant scene. Callaloo, located in the historic Manhattan Casino building at 22nd St and 6th Ave S, just on the south side of the Grand Central district of St Pete, officially opened its doors to the public on Monday March 19th for both lunch and dinner. (This area is also known as "The Deuces".)

Built in 1925, the Manhattan Casino is significant for its contribution to entertainment and the culture in the African American community for more than forty years. Some of American music's most legendary performers played at the Manhattan including James Brown, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Fats Domino and the Ink Spots.

The property is also significant for its association with Elder Jordan, a local African-American entrepreneur whose business interests were broadly varied. Elder Jordan and his sons contracted in 1925 with R.L. Sharpe to build a 12,000 sq. ft., two-story Manhattan Casino, which first opened as an entertainment facility named the Jordan Dance Hall in 1931. Later the dance hall became known as the Manhattan Casino and, during segregation the Manhattan was the place for cultural and social entertainment similar to what the Coliseum provided to the white community.

The Manhattan Casino was a showcase for local African American artists as well as a haven for traveling African American entertainers who would stop in St. Petersburg during their tours. After the era of the big bands, the Manhattan Casino hosted dances featuring local artists rock and roll and blues singers popular in the 1960's also performed at the Casino. Goldie Thompson, local minister and radio personality, booked religious programs at the Casino, as did Father Divine, a spiritualist. The venue closed its doors in 1968.

We attended Callaloo's friends & family event on Thursday, March 15th. Much c ongratulations to partners Mario Farias, Ramon Hernandez and Vincent Jackson on a beautiful restaurant with amazing food pioneered by partner and Executive Chef Gary Moran.

The interior of Callaloo has a warm, swanky vibe. You can feel the excitement and pride exude from the partners and the staff.

The warm and swanky main dining room

Warm notes from the saxophonist playing in the bar area, aptly named Blue Note, softly fill the air. The sexy Blue Note is to your right as you enter the restaurant. It immediately feels as welcoming as home.

Soft Jazz in the bar area aptly named Blue Note

Blue Note offers a variety of specialty craft cocktails as well as beer and wine.

To the left of the bar as you enter is a gorgeous and elegant wine wall.

Wine wall on the left as you enter

Just before the wine wall on the left is the counter for Pipo's which is also housed as a to-go counter under the same roof as Callaloo. Partner, Ramon Hernandez, is the owner of Pipo's and now has space to also offer catering options out of the same kitchen. The building also has a large event space to the left of the restaurant. See pictures and read more about Callaloo's event space here.

In the back of the main dining area is a private dining area that can hold up to 20 people for a more intimate gathering.

But what about the food? At the friends and family event, we ordered a total of five items and shared them all. We had fantastic service and were in great hands with Codi Lock, who is new to St Petersburg. To say we were delighted is an understatement. We loved everything so much that we returned for lunch the following Tuesday so we could taste more and share those dishes with you also.

We started with the Three Dip Sampler which consists of Callaloo Dip - roasted garlic, olive oil, crushed red pepper & cuban bread toast (Callaloo is a dish of wild greens found in the Caribbean), Hillbilly Hummus - black eyed peas & cuban bread toast, and House Smoked Mullet Spread with cuban bread toast. My favorite was the Callaloo Dip as it had a tanginess and a bite with the garlic and pepper. Plus I just love greens. The House Smoked Mullet was fantastic with that wonderful smoky flavor. This was Kevin's favorite and could be a meal in and of itself. I thought the Hillbilly Hummus could use a tad more salt. but that's just me. Kevin loved the full cloves of roasted garlic in the hummus. (The current menu description doesn't list the garlic.) These were so close because they were all delicious. And that cuban toast bread. Perfect.

Three dip sampler from left to right: Hillbilly Hummus, Callaloo Dip & House Smoked Mullet Spread

Next we tried the Crab and Callaloo Stew with bacon and okra. What is not to love about a stew made with greens, crab, bacon and okra? Nothing. Fantastic earthy flavors and ripe for adding a touch of hot sauce to make it even better.

Kevin loves shrimp & grits. If it's on a menu, he is sure to order it. This shrimp & grits is not your typical shrimp & grits as it contains smoked tomato, pork bark, white wine, fresh basil and cheese grits. Soupier than normal due to the white wine butter sauce that is absolutely scrumptious and bathes the shrimp in moisture. A different experience to be sure. Kevin being the expert calls this dish "gourmet comfort food."

It's not possible for me to go to a restaurant that names a dish The World's Best Fried Chicken and not order it. I am not a huge chicken and waffles fan and I rarely order it. It seems like a fad, trendy dish. However, I had to try that chicken and am I ever glad we did. It definitely lives up to its name. This fried chicken was very savory and crunchy on the outside which contrasted perfectly with the plump, moist and juicy chicken on the inside. The chicken is served with cheese grits and corn bread stuffing waffles and hot maple mustard sauce. Corn bread waffles what a great combination with the chicken and gives this dish the perfect tweak to traditional chicken and waffles. And that sauce. Holy smokes is it ever a mouth explosion of sweet, spice and savory flavors that harmonize in perfect combination.

The World's Best Fried Chicken

The finale for the night was the Southern Style Meatloaf. Another dish I insisted on ordering. I have yet to find a meatloaf in St Pete that is worth ordering. Well, I found it. And now I am going to have to buy more stretchy pants. Finally a regular, down-home—not smothered in ketchup—savory and juicy meatloaf. It comes with a smoky coffee onion gravy, smashed just right garlic mashed potatoes and southern green beans with pork bits that are not mushy but cooked just a tad al dente. This is a to die for southern meal at its finest.

When we returned for lunch on Tuesday the 20th of March, we were excited to try more. Thank you to Laura Mulrooney for another meal with fabulous service. We started with a Caesar salad which is a very nice size portion to share and was delicious with toasted cuban bread for croutons and the Smoked Pork Mac 'n Triple Cheese Skillet with green peas, jalapeño and scallion. The Mac is served in a fresh from the oven skillet and just as creamy and scrumptious as it looks.

Smoked Pork Mac 'n Triple Cheese Skillet with jalapeño and scallion

Another one of my Southern favorites are pork chops. Boneless ones, especially, if not cooked right can end up dry and tasteless. Not these. Wow! The flavors on those chops went from a slight sweet to smoky to spicy and were just marvelous. They were tender and juicy. This dish is normally served with callaloo greens and sweet potato waffle fries. Not being a sweet potato fan and that seeming a strange accompaniment to me, I substituted the garlic mashed potatoes instead. You know I am already a big fan of the potatoes, but the greens were cooked exactly as they should be. They had the earthiness and tanginess of the greens mixed with some pork bits and a bit of spice. Loved them. I can't wait to go back for more.

House Smoked and Grilled Boneless Pork Chops

Kevin opted for The Original Cuban sandwich. Of everything that we tried thus far, this was the least impressive dish we ordered. It was tasty, a tad on the dry side, but with so many other things to order it would not be the first on my list. Kevin said that if it was pressed with butter, it would have more flavor, and moisture.

Thank goodness Callaloo is so close to downtown. Literally less than five minutes drive time or the least expensive Uber fare. With all Callaloo has going for itself, it is sure to be a monumental success filling a gap much needed in St Pete. true down-home Southern and Caribbean fare.

  • Mon - Thu 11:00am - 9:00pm
  • Fri - Sat 11:00am - 10:00pm
  • Sun - 11:00am - 4:00pm

Callaloo offers a blending of the best of two worlds by serving Southern comfort foods such as fried chicken and mac ’n cheese while exploring flavors of the islands with mojo style pork and chicken and sweet plantains. They have a full service bar that features locally distilled spirits and brewed beers. They also offer live music of all genres of artists in the bar and lounge.
