About the restaurant
Café Napoli is a family owned restaurant, established in 1989 by Tony and Kathy Pietoso. Quickly becoming a success, they moved the small basement restaurant to a larger location at the corner of Forsyth and Bemiston in the heart of Clayton. In 2003, sons Ande and Kye expanded their family restaurant by adding Bar Napoli, a swank cocktail lounge. A few years later, Napoli Reserve was added onto Bar Napoli allowing for private event space and an additional bar and lounge for the weekends. After years of a flourishing business, Kathy and Tony decided to take their ventures West to Town and Country where they opened their second location, Napoli2, managed by Ande. Kye has taken the reigns from his father and is now the front man for the 8,000 square foot establishment in Clayton. Café Napoli and Bar Napoli have recently undergone a face lift inside and out. Inside the kitchen, Executive Chef from Napoli2 Jon Berger was recently added to the team, bringing fresh ideas and innovation to the regional Italian specialties.

About the restaurant
We want to bring a different type of fun to the corner of Manchester and McKnight. COFFEE, MIMOSAS, BLOODY MARYS AND GOOD FOOD
Locally Sourced / Crafted for Fun.
The owners of The Mud House, have opened a new breakfast-and-lunch spot next to Hangar in Rock Hill. Momo’s chef is Jesse Mills, a former sous chef at the Tavern and at Hangar. Both Mills and the Sedlaks believe in using the highest quality products throughout the menu, such as farm eggs from Buttonwood Farms. That’s what sets Momo’s aside from other breakfast places. You can see and taste the difference, both in the standard dishes and on the sandwiches containing eggs.

The Momo restaurant’s tagline is “coffee-champagne-kitchen,” which hallmarks of a fun brunch. You can grab a regular breakfast or lunch, or you can crank it up with brunch-based cocktails. Momo is about coffee and cocktails and just happens to serve really good food. The restaurant is open is open for breakfast and lunch daily from 7 a.

About the restaurant
St. Louis’ favorite Mexican restaurant since 1968!
Hacienda Mexican Restaurant was founded in 1968 by Mexican-born restaurateur Norberto Rodriguez with the goal of introducing authentic Mexican cuisine to the greater St. Louis area. The restaurant was an immediate success and to satisfy growing customer demand, our current location on Manchester Road in Rock Hill was founded in 1977 in one of the area’s most historic buildings which dates all the way back to the 1860’s.

For over 40 years, Hacienda Mexican Restaurant has remained entirely family owned and operated and been continually committed to realizing Norberto Rodriguez’s vision of serving authentic Mexican food in a festive atmosphere with the highest level of hospitality. Come visit us and see why Hacienda remains one of the area’s most acclaimed, unique dining destinations.
