All in the Family
Last week we teased the new sister business Mundos Latin Kitchen & Bar
is bringing to Springfield, and this week we have some additional
details for you. Mi Tierra, which means “my land” in Spanish is set to
open in mid-March at 1640 N. Glenstone Ave.
The menu will highlight dishes from more than 12 Latin American
countries including Colombia, Peru, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and
Puerto Rico. And in other sister business news, the crew behind Gettin' Basted and Mythical 'Wich is now taking on the Branson chicken scene and will be opening Side Chick at 3405 W. Country Blvd. They’re shooting for a tentative opening date of March 6, and we’ll have more details for you soon!
One Door Closes, Another Opens
The 417-land restaurant
scene is constantly evolving. Businesses are always opening and,
unfortunately, closing. Allow us to bring you up to speed:
• The Kebab Shack (900 E. Battlefield Rd, Unit 120, Springfield)
is hosting its grand opening tomorrow, February 14. The fast-casual
concept features a Mediterranean-inspired menu with offerings such as
chicken kebab bowls, falafel salad and gyros.
• D'Vine Delicatessen & Wine retired its booth at 14 Mill Market and is now serving gourmet pizza, sandwiches and charcuterie boards at its new location at 432 South Mill Street in Rogersville.
• Bigg Time Arcade, downtown Springfield’s newest sports bar, opened this past week at 301 Park Central East. Here, you can play a round of pool or TruGolf after filling up on pizza from The Big Slice.
• In sad news, it looks like the flood damage from the busted water pipe at Amici did quite a number. The team recently announced that the modern Italian eatery will not be reopening at 4728 S. Campbell Ave., and its future is hanging in limbo.
If you’ve ever had one of Collective Kitchen’s
sourdough loaves, you know they are more than worth the effort of
pre-order. Over the past several years, owner Alex Maurer has been
running her cottage bakery from her home in the Rountree neighborhood.
However, she just announced that her business is growing. She will now
be sharing a kitchen with Box Turtle Creamery (1458 E. Cherry St, Springfield),
where you will be able to pick up your pre-orders and even occasionally
snag a loaf on a whim. This change is also bringing a rebrand with it.
Collective Kitchen is now La Mère Bakery. Ooh la la!
