The St. Louis Business Journal reports that the popular fast-casual calzone spot, Sauce on the Side, will be changing its Downtown address this summer. Their new space at the Tower at the Old Post Office Plaza, a few blocks away from where they are now, will give the chefs more kitchen space and a larger outdoor seating area. The move is expected to be completed by mid-June, and the original location will be open until then, though there will be a few days of closure close to the move date. 903 Pine St., Downtown, 314.241.5667
