Market Grill (728 Lafayette Avenue; 314-436-7664) this week announced changes in both the front and back of the house: Katie Shanahan is the new general manger; Jonathan Olson, formerly of Erato on Main and (briefly) The Terrace View is the new chef.

"We're changing up the menus, the beer menu, the wine menu," Olson tells Gut Check. The idea, he says, is to present "fresher" food, like house-cured meats and housemade bread and pastas.

Olson says the Market Grill team recognizes the importance of the restaurant's location in the heart of Soulard: "We still want to get in the Soulard crowd. Everyone knows everyone down here."

Market Grill will close after service on Sunday, September 4, so that Olson can work on the new menu, which he describes as a "work in progress." When the restaurant reopens for lunch on Friday, September 9, Olson envisages a selection of roughly ten lunch items and twelve to fifteen dinner items.
