Sardella Restaurant Opens

CLAYTON, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) Sardella Restaurant Opens its Doors Sardella Restaurant has officially opened its doors on November 2nd, 2016. Chef and Owner Gerard Craft, of Pastaria, Taste, Brasserie and Porano Pasta is the man behind the restaurant.

Located at 7734 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis, Missouri, 63105, in the space that once was occupied by Niche, another restaurant of Craft’s that closed early 2016.

Craft got the word and food out by going on the road in the Seoul Taco Truck. He served the lunch menu from Sardella and the proceeds went to the St. Louis MetroMarket, a converted bus that delivers fresh produce to those in need in St. Louis City.

The owner of Seoul Taco, David Choi, had purchased a new truck and kindly loaned out his old one to Craft.
