This Week's Dish: Jump on the Tour de Taco with Mike's Bikes
It was announced last week that Herbie’s Vintage ’72 will be moving from its popular spot to Clayton this fall. The Central West End eatery—which was also the former Café Balaban space—will be heading to the Cardwell’s space in Clayton. Chef-owner Aaron Teitelbaum decided to move the restaurant since the CWE space’s lease is up in October and Cardwell’s owners, Rich and Debbie Gorczyca, had made plans to retire. 405 N. Euclid Ave., Central West End
May 24: Tomorrow is Giveback Tuesday at Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria.
