Citygarden's restaurant: Terrace View to Joe's Chili Bowl.

A final few items for the week.

- Sauce scooped the news of what will happen to the restaurant space in Citygarden after last year's closure of the Terrace View (808 Chestnut Street): Kim Tucci and Joe Fresta of the Pasta House Co. chain and the new(ish) Tucci & Fresta's Trattoria & Bar in Clayton will open a chili parlor there called Joe's Chili Bowl.

- As George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine was first to report, the (essentially) one-woman show Famous Szechuan Pavilion has relocated from its Brentwood kiosk to Jeffrey Plaza in University City, the undisputed champion of St. Louis strip-mall dining. Specifically, it takes over the spot at 8615 Olive Boulevard that was vacated last year by the Ethiopian restaurant Blue Nile Market and Cafe.
