Katie's Pizza & Pasta started with a concept: artisan pasta and pizza. Thanks to a Kickstarter campaign, it raised over $40,000 for its development -- and attracted a few traditional investors to boot. Now, the new project from Katie Lee of Katie's Pizzeria Café (6611 Clayton Road, Clayton; 314-727-8585) has finally nailed down one somewhat important detail: its address.

Lee announced on Facebook yesterday that she has signed a lease for Katie's Pizza & Pasta at 9568 Manchester Road in Rock Hill. This is part of the Market at McKnight development on the southwest corner of the intersection of Manchester and McKnight roads.

Lee also shared that construction on the new restaurant will begin immediately with an eye toward an opening this summer.

In January, Lee gave Gut Check an idea of what to expect when Katie's Pizza & Pasta opens:

Lee describes Katie's Pizza and Pasta as "an artisan Italian restaurant with an open kitchen, a wood-burning oven [and] some cool new techniques with pasta." Diners will have full view not only of food being cooked to order, but also of such longer-term projects as pasta hanging to dry and meats being cured in-house.

"It's all going to be on display for everyone to see while they're eating."
