Ben Poremba will be keeping the space to transition into a fresh concept in its Botanical Heights location next to his other dining havens Elaia and Olio, as well as the co-owned La Patisserie Choquette. Poremba also opened his newest venture, Pairigi, in Clayton earlier this year. 1621 Tower Grove Ave., Botanical Heights
The highly anticipated Yolkore opened yesterday in Crestwood in the former King Edwards Chicken and Fish spot.

St. Louis staple appetizer, toasted ravioli, is getting its own business. As reported by Feast, toaSTL is a new small business that will join the dining scene by engaged couple Anthony Atencio and Megan Richter. For now, you can follow along in their endeavors on social media to perfect their recipe with a local chef that will hopefully show up in pop-ups around the city before becoming a brick-and-mortar.
