Per St. Louis Magazine, the restaurant and bakery La Dolce Via (4470 Arco Avenue; 314-534-1699) has announced via its e-mail newsletter that it will close after a final service on January 1, 2013.

Gut Check has a call in for additional information. (La Dolce Via is closed on Monday.) More as we learn it.

Update: (Monday, August 27, 3:45 p.m.) We heard back from owner Marcia Sindel this afternoon. She tells Gut Check that she isn't sure what lies ahead for her, but it almost certainly won't be another restaurant.

"It's been a really rough road the past few years," she says. "We got started on a real downturn when we did a Groupon. It took us so long to recover from that."
