Balaban's Wine Cellar & Tapas Bar
opens today at 1772 Clarkson Road
in Chesterfield. Owners Steve McIntyre and Brian Underwood are offering tapas dishes, carry-out fare and a retail wine selection, with some of chef Kevin Sthair's dishes drawing upon classic recipes of the original Balaban's (beef Wellington, Ligurian shrimp.) Balaban's is open 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Call 636-449-6700 for more information.
Balaban's opening comes only thirteen months after Aaron Teitelbaum and Jeff Orbin opened Herbie's Vintage 72
at the original Balaban's location
in the Central West End.
The year of Balaban's resurrection is complete.
