801 Fish is now open at 172 Carondelet Plaza in Clayton. The location is just across the street from its steakhouse sibling 801 Chophouse, which the Des Moines, Iowa-based 801 Restaurant Group opened in late December 2013.
The second location of this seafood-focused concept to debut — the first was in Leawood, Kan., a Kansas City suburb — 801 Fish offers a menu of upscale fare: a raw bar, crudo, crab cakes, lobster rolls, cioppino and more.
801 Fish is open for dinner Monday through Saturday. Lunch service begins Tuesday (Nov. 23) and will be available Monday through Friday. Sunday brunch service begins Jan. 3. The phone number is 314-875-9636.
If you have driven down Maryland Avenue in Clayton recently you may have noticed some construction happening and the disappearance of the “Brown Shoe” name. After also doing a google search I found the video above. The CEO, Diane Sullivan explains the change in brand name to Caleres. Keeping their 136 years of success in mind, all the while adapting to the new marketplace.
When I stopped by I also noticed a fantastic new sculpture by architecht Saunders Schultz.
“Vacant for nearly two decades, the prominent corner of Clayton and Hanley Roads may finally be redeveloped. Planned is more than 500Ksf of retail, including a grocer, more than 40Ksf of office space, and as many as 291 residential units.”
I remember hearing of a proposal for something similar back in 2009. Unfortunately, nothing ever came of it. I think it would be a great way to fill the vacant site and bring new amenities to the area. From what I have been hearing this time around, I think that it will become a reality.
