Kirkwood Grad to Open New Restaurant in Clayton
Nick Luedde, a '95 Kirkwood High graduate who has worked in Chicago and New York, is teaming up with acclaimed St. Louis chef Josh Galliano.
A Kirkwood High School graduate and restaurateur is looking to serve up a fresh take on the neighborhood eatery with a new restaurant in Clayton.
Nick Luedde, 36, who graduated from Kirkwood High in 1995, along with his wife and fellow restaurateur Audra Luedde and acclaimed St. Louis chef Josh Galliano will open Libertine in Clayton, according to STLtoday.
They're calling the concept a "re-imagined neighborhood eatery," with small and large plates ranging from $6 to $22, backed by a wine, cocktail and craft beer program.
Lease details are being finalized, but St. Louis Magazine's George Mahe reports the Libertine will be located at 7927 Forsyth Boulevard in Clayton, a space vacated last year by Chez Leon. Once open, Libertine will serve dinner daily, with lunch service coming later.
