Lose an Institution, (Re)Gain an Institution

Sadly, Hamilton Jewelers downtown--in business for 72 years--will be closing.

If you're depressed, take in the joy of a local restaurant classic's return. That's right. Sauce Magazine's "Scoop" blog reports that Chuy Arzola's, AKA Chuy's, will be reopening.

No, not in Dogtown, but in Midtown--in the space that Joe Boccardi's will soon be vacating inside the Coronado.

Old Chuy's...

Meet New Chuy's!

As a former 2+ year resident of Dogtown--good riddance to Chuy's! They had weird hours, overpriced crappy margaritas and marinara-like salsa.

Let the SLU-ts enjoy!

Too bad Joe Boccardi's on Lindell is closing though.

I wonder how Chuy's will do in that space. There's already a Mexican restaurant on Laclede.
