Monday Tuesday, Sept. 18 19.
Located at 8 C1TY Blvd. in the ground floor of a newly-built office building in the OneC1TY development, Craft’s casual Italian concept, which first opened in St. Louis in 2012, will serve up a variety of pastas, pizza, soups and salads, along with Niche Food Group executive pastry chef Mathew Rice’s gelatos and creative desserts.
A representative for Craft and Pastaria tells Eater that there will be special limited, public soft openings in the week leading up to the grand opening. Eager diners can follow the restaurant’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages for updates and chances to be the first to check it out.
