April 2015: Fans of the Guerrilla Street Food truck can expect to have a permanent spot to find the Filipino-inspired cuisine this spring. The restaurant will be joining the ever-growing population of eateries on South Grand—where Lulu’s Local Eatery truck opened its first brick-and-mortar last year—in the former space of Sekisui. According to Sauce, chef and co-owner Brian Hardesty is working to make the 1,500-square-foot space a fast-casual lunch and dinner spot that will offer the truck’s popular menu items as well as expand with even more Philippine dishes they want to explore. 3024 South Grand Blvd., Tower Grove
