shavedduck.gifAs some of you might have heard via the St. Louis Magazine Blog Feast, the South City restaurant The Shaved Duck will be closing its doors on January 3rd.  Fortunately for us beer lovers this is not a death of a place to get a great meal and a great (and inexpensive) beer, but a re-birth.

Shaved Duck owner, Ally Nisbet emailed to let me know that the restaurant will be re-opening on January 27th with a new menu that will be focusing on rustic American cooking, “specializing in smoked meats, BBQ and traditional American side dishes.” But favorite dishes such as the duck frites and confit will not be going anywhere when the Duck reopens.  The Sauce Scoop reports that some of the new dishes we can expect include “flatbreads, substantial salads and several chilis (served with milk!) that range from from mild to screaming hot.”

But fret not, the beer list will not be going anywhere.  Stay tuned.
