Cardwell's in Frontenac Latest Restaurant to Go Smoke Free

Posted By on Mon, Mar 23, 2009 at 1:06 PM

More depressing news for puffers.

Beginning next month, Cardwell's at the Plaza will join the ranks of several other area restaurants in prohibiting smoking indoors.

In a statement, owner/chef Bill Cardwell said he hopes the move makes all his clients have a better dining experience.
"This was a very difficult decision, as we have very loyal guests who enjoy sitting at the bar with a drink and a cigarette," said Cardwell. "These are some of my best and most valued guests, and I trust they will understand that I've made this change after long consideration, for the health and well being of both my diners and my employees." 
Smoking will still be permitted on the outdoor patio at the restaurant. Last summer Cardwell and business partner John Vincent Kennealy opened BC's Kitchen in Lake Saint Louis. That restaurant is also smoke free indoors.
