Sauce on the Side (7810 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton; 314-833-5426), the homegrown fast-casual calzone shop that former RFT food critic Ian Froeb predicted would someday expand into a chain, opened its second location in Clayton last month. Since establishing its original location downtown two years ago, the restaurant has received favorable reviews and was also named best fast-casual restaurant in RFT's 2013 Best of St. Louis.

The Clayton location maintains the same sleek and minimal aesthetic as its flagship, with wood-topped tables and splashes of vibrant colors on the walls. The restaurant also carries over its menu of salads and hand-tossed calzones -- fourteen different varieties -- filled and topped with a variety of fresh ingredients and served with housemade dressings, bastes and dipping sauces.

To celebrate two years in business, the restaurant offers a special "Two Gyro Anniversary" calzone filled with gyro meatballs, roma tomatoes, red onions, kalamata olives, cucumber, feta and fontina cheese, served with lemon-mint tzatziki sauce. Sauce on the Side's drink menu features more than 50 bottled beers as well as wine by the glass or bottle. For dessert, choose from Nutella-banana and caramel-apple-pie calzones.
