The Pi truck was one of the first food trucks in the St. Louis area.
Pi Restaurants will discontinue regular operations for its food truck service in the St. Louiis area on Tuesday, July 31, according to the Pi Pizza web site. Pi has locations in the Delmar Loop, Kirkwood, the Central West End, Chesterfield and a new location in the Merchantile Exchange in downtown St. Louis. The statement on Pi's web site reads as follows: July 31st, 2012 will be the last day of regular operations for both our St. Louis and Washington, DC trucks. We are thrilled to have led the way in STL food truck scene, scouting out the most popular spots for trucks in St. Louis City. We’ve enjoyed bringing our Pi to guests who couldn’t otherwise enjoy Pi in our full-service restaurants during their lunch hour. But now we want to re-…

Kirkwood's Pi Pizzeria is the first Missouri restaurant to start Meatless Mondays, the international campaign for veggie-only dishes once a week.
Pi Pizzeria is the first restaurant in the state of Missouri to adopt Meatless Mondays, an international campaign to cut meat consumption once a week. The concept may sound unusual, especially since pepperoni has long been America’s documented favorite pizza topping, but going meatless on Mondays has a long history in the U.S. During World War I, Herbert Hoover, then head of the U.S. Food Administration, campaigned for families to limit consumption of scarce items—including meat—so there’d be enough for the troops. A Saturday Evening Post article in 1929 reported on the movement: “Americans began to look seriously into the question of what and how much they were eating. Lots of people discovered for the first time that they could eat less …

A quiet opening for Kirkwood's newest pizzeria.
Pazzo’s, the latest concept in Michael Del Pietro’s family of restaurants, opened Oct. 25 in Station Plaza with little fanfare. Pazzo’s opened in the space formerly occupied by La Salsa. They are the third occupant of the space and hopefully third time’s the charm. In order to charm Kirkwood, however, they need to come into the light and really wow us. Pazzo’s seems wrapped in a bit of mystery. Their website is very basic, with a menu, an address and a phone number. No hours are listed – they are open for lunch and dinner – and a call to the phone number provided was never answered by a person. To further add to the mystery, the lighting outside the restaurant, primarily two short lit trees, does not exactly make it feel like the …
