Openings: Vito's In The Valley, Rise Coffee And The Precinct
Saturday, Sept. 28: Rise Coffee quietly opened its doors last month, serving Goshen Coffee and Whisk baked goods in The Grove. Husband-and-wife owners Ron and Jessie Mueller have outfitted the hippie-chic shop with an au courant brew bar featuring pour-over, drip and espresso coffee drinks; artistic and sustainable interiors courtesy of Mzanzi Co. and JIPSI Vintage Boho Living; and a second-floor Treehouse space for kids that is stocked with toys, books and child-sized chairs. Rise is open Tuesday-Sunday from 7am-4pm.

Wednesday, Oct. 2: The beloved Midtown pizzeria, Vito’s, completed their westward expansion last week, opening Vito’s In The Valley in the former Tratoria Branica spot at Chesterfield Towne Centre. The menu reflects the many classic Sicilian dishes that have made Vito’s popular in the city and includes a few new items that are exclusive to the new location. Add that to the full bar, beautiful patio and regular live music, and you’ve got the perfect place for your next happy hour, date night or leisurely weekend lunch.

Monday, Oct. 14: The Precinct, a casual burger joint marketed to the police officials moving into the former Wells Fargo building, is slated to open its doors next week. Housed in the former F15teen restaurant space, the new eatery is also co-owned by Jim Edmonds. In addition to burgers, the bar-and-grill-style menu will feature pretzels and cheese, t-ravs, chicken wings, hot dogs, fish and chips, flat iron steak and more. A notable—and apropos—dessert of warm donuts is also available. The Precinct’s grand opening party will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26, and will feature Elton John cover band Dogs of Society. Space 15 will remain open as a venue rental space.
