In January, Sauce on the Side announced it would open a third St. Louis location in The Grove. The new location will be at 4261 Manchester Avenue. One of the draws to the transforming neighborhood was gaining the ability to make deliveries to Midtown and Central West End neighborhoods.

The restaurant will occupy the building’s first floor and apartments will be completed on the second. Sauce on the Side aims to be open by May. Apartments are planned for summer occupancy.

Last year, the Sauce on the Side’s downtown location moved from a hole-in-the-wall diner spot (with it’s own charm), to the first level of the Roberts Tower at Old Post Office Plaza. The other location is in downtown Clayton.

The building is the last of four at the central intersection of Manchester and Tower Grover Avenue to be rehabbed. The building has been vacant for some time, and long neglected before that. The other corners are occupied by Sweetie Pies, Reliance Bank, and boutique retail.

Developer Restoration St. Louis is bringing the building back to life. The company is currently restoring several store fronts on the south side of Manchester in The Grove as well, and has rehabbed dozens of properties in the neighborhood. SPACE Architecture + Design is the building architect and designed the space for Sauce on the Side.

  • Perhaps someone should send this to the archdiocese, who wants to pull down a similarly-massed building on Gravois (2711 Gravois, to be precise) for a parking lot.

    I love the design. I have been hoping for someone to occupy that building for some time now. It’s such a prominent spot with a very cool building. That sign is the cherry on top. It echoes Sweetie Pie’s sign across the way and the Gramophone’s sign down the street. I’m super psyched for this project.

    • John R

      Me, too…. And I vaguely recall promising Amy Gill I’d run down Manchester when the building is restored. Maybe I’ll do that when the second floor above the entryway is restored.

      I’m also super-curious what other tenants will be coming to the multiple storefronts becoming available on Manchester…. hopefully more than just food and drink with more neighborhood services like the bank in the mix.

      • Michael B

        The multi-colored brick building straight across from the Gramophone is rumored to be Frontdoor’s new offices. I’m not sure what they will be doing with the location they have occupied at Arco and Taylor for the past couple of years.

        I also heard that they are looking for a bakery to go in, but I agree with you: I would like to see more retail or something to bring more daytime foot traffic.

        • Agnieszka Milczarek

          Interesting. I wonder what will go into FrontDoor’s current office. Still praying for a La Dolce Via comeback.

          • John R

            That would be awesome but that particular location would be awfully close to Amy’s.

        • Christopher Dimza

          I always hear people asking for a bakery, but isn’t Amy’s Corner Bakeshop in the Grove? It’s right at Taylor and Chouteau.

          • Riggle

            Yup, because most commenters are arm chair planners, midcounty types that have never walked in these hoods or taken a bus in their life

          • Michael B

            This commenter is a neighborhood home owner with vested interest in the goings-on of the area. I’m just repeating what I’ve heard from my time walking around the streets and visiting the businesses along Manchester and throughout the neighborhood. Amy’s Corner Bakeshop is in the Grove, so I have no idea why they want another bakery; just that the developer was hoping for one to go in on Manchester.

          • Alex Ihnen

            Amy’s is nice, but there are certainly things they don’t carry. Also, hours are very limited: closed Mon-Tues, 7am-2pm Wed-Fri, and 8am-3pm Sat-Sun. The last few times I’ve decided to go there they were closed. It reminds me of when La Dolce Via was on Taylor. It was great in many ways, but hours were bad, unplanned closings were not uncommon. I would always say that the neighborhood needed a coffee shop and some would say “we have La Dolce Via”. Well, they opened at 9am, too late for me to grab an AM coffee. Then Rise opened, and the neighborhood now has a coffee shop. No reason there “another” bakery isn’t needed or couldn’t do well.

          • Riggle

            Any thoughts on large(r) scale Grocery in the Grove?

          • Alex Ihnen

            Sure. More than one developer has tried and failed to land a grocer. If I had a pile of money, I’d put a Trader Joe’s at Commerce Bank site. I guarantee it would be a big success.

          • Riggle

            Agreed, and the FYE site on Hampton, though not nearly as exciting from an urban standpoint.

      • chelsysayshi

        Reliance Bank is literally right across the street from the new Sauce on the Side location.

        • Alex Ihnen

          I think John is referring to Reliance being there now.

          • chelsysayshi

            Whoops! I misread it the first time. But yes, more neighborhood services would be fantastic!

          • John R

            No problem.

      • Agnieszka Milczarek

        Agreed. The bars and restaurants are great, but we need more retail and services that will be convenient for Grove residents. I’m personally hoping for a dry cleaners/tailor, fro yo shop, and nail salon within walking distance…wishful thinking, but you never know. I’d never have to leave the neighborhood!

        • John R

          Sounds great but don’t expect Paradise quite yet! Maybe by 2018!
