Mama Pho Vietnamese Restaurant closed
its doors at 3737 South Grand Boulevard last fall after only a year in business. The building at the intersection of South Grand and Chippewa -- a former McDonald's -- has been empty since then.
Now, however, the "New Businesses" section of the latest dead-tree St. Louis Business Journal
(September 23-29) lists a venture called Wut a Steak
at that address, and a business with that name was registered with the Missouri Secretary of State by a Jesse L. Adams Sr.
I drove by the spot today, hoping to see some evidence of what Wut a Steak might be -- besides a pain in the butt to spell-check -- but there was no signage, nor was it readily apparent that any work was being done in or outside. On the other hand, there was no longer a for-lease sign in the window. More as I learn it.
