Just two months ago Riverfront Times dubbed Old Webster's The Block (146 West Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-918-7900) St. Louis' "Best Neighborhood Restaurant".

Now comes the news that the Block is expanding to a second neighborhood, this one in the City of St. Louis.

As first reported by Feast, owners Marc Del Pietro and Brian Doherty plan to open a second location at 33 North Sarah Street in the Central West End, the space that was previously home to Terrene.

"We're definitely going with the same format," Del Pietro tells Gut Check. That means all locally sourced meat butchered in-house and available not only as part of the restaurant menu but also from a retail counter.

"The menu will be about 50% to 60% the same," adds Del Pietro. "We're trying to replicate [the original Block] as best as possible but still it have it be its own entity."

Look for the new Block to open in the early part of 2013.
