If you've walked around Kirkwood's Station Plaza lately, the buzzing of construction emitting from the corner next to Pickleman's may have caught your attention.

Pazzo's pizza, the third occupant of that space, closed last week. The new pizzeria will be coming in April.
Maybe the fourth time's a charm for the seemingly snakebit site at the southern end of Kirkwood Station Plaza. It's been a Johnny Rockets, it's been a La Salsa and until last week, it was a Pazzo's pizzeria—opened for only about 15 months. St. Louis Magazine reported that Pazzo's last service was Saturday. It is also reporting that Crushed Red Urban Bake & Chop Shop, a pizza/salad/sandwich spot that has so far had a successful run in Clayton, will be taking over the space at 140 S. Kirkwood Road, anchoring the southern end of the strip that includes Bar Louie, Kaldi's and the relatively new Pickleman's. Crushed Red is expected to open in April, according to the magazine, and it may be the second of three to open; a Central West End …

Let us know what you think of Downtown Kirkwood's newest eatery.
Pickleman's Gourmet Cafe will open its doors Saturday at 10 a.m. in Downtown Kirkwood, just in time to meet the needs of hungry Mayfest patrons. Owner Nick Julian said he chose the location at Station Plaza (between Kaldi's and Pazzo's) because of the large amount of foot traffic it attracts.

Julian also said he liked Kirkwood for its hometown feel. Read our Q&A with Julian about the Kirkwood Pickleman's. The Plaza patio certainly will be packed Saturday for Downtown Kirkwood's MayFest.

The community turned out to support the grand reopening of Bar Louie's kitchen Thursday night. The restaurant continues the celebration with special deals on food and drinks.
Residents filled Bar Louie Thursday night for the restaurant's grand reopening celebration of its newly remodeled kitchen. Festivities included live music by the Falling Martins, sets by DJs and a free happy hour appetizer buffet. Bar Louie's kitchen had been closed for the past two and a half weeks for remodeling.
