FoodWire: Pi, Pi and More Pi

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 11:30 AM

Lots of news today about Pi (6144 Delmar Boulevard; website), which began a year and a half ago as a Delmar Loop restaurant serving San Francisco-style deep-dish pizza and is about to become a mini-empire. First, the second location of Pi -- a.k.a. Pi Squared -- at 10935 Manchester Road in Kirkwood will not  open today as originally scheduled, owner Chris Sommers informed me. No big deal -- just the usual complications inherent in opening a new restaurant. Look for an October opening. More Pi news, after the jump.

Meanwhile, Sauce Magazine reports on its blog that the new Kirkwood location will feature a milkshake bar. Niche pastry chef Mathew Rice is consulting on the effort.

Finally, the worst-kept secret in the local restaurant scene was that the third location of Pi will open in what is now the Sapphire Pan-Asian space at 4753 McPherson Avenue. At Off the Menu, Joe Bonwich reports that Sapphire will close this Saturday, September 12. Pi is also opening a bar in the currently unoccupied space next-door to Sapphire. Sommers told me he personally began demolition on this project yesterday.
