The Tavern STL

     The owners of the Corner Pub & Grill restaurants are proud to announce a new cocktail and dining destination – The Tavern Kitchen & Bar – which opened on October 1.  Located in Valley Park at 2961 Dougherty Ferry Road (the same complex as the original Corner Pub location), The Tavern serves “exquisite comfort food artfully presented in a welcoming environment” that includes handmade oak tables, a comfortable bar, and an open kitchen.  Co-owners Brant Baldanza and Jon Fogarty recruited an old high school friend, Justin Haifley, to serve as executive chef for The Tavern.  Haifley, a Pennsylvania Culinary Institute grad, returns to St. Louis after a 10-year stint as a chef and partner in Roy Yamaguchi’s restaurant empire and appearances on Regis & Kelly and Good Morning America.  Haifley’s food at The Tavern will more closely resemble American comfort food than the Euro-Asian cuisine that Yamaguchi calls Hawaaiian fusion.”We are thrilled to have the talented Chef Haifley back in his hometown and look forward to introducing our community to his unique style of food,” Baldanza says.  “Patrons can expect standard menu items with a twist, such as skirt steak fundido, periwinkle clam chowder or our tavern burger with bacon jam.”  Check out The Tavern’s website – – to see photos, make reservations, and review the menu, which includes a variety of mouth-watering choices including hand-made pastas, steaks, sadwiches and unique sides, including Tater-Tot Casserole.
The Sign – The Tavern chose to use their convenient and noticable corner building space to showcase their restaurant name in a large, unique and vertical way.  Attractive and sturdy aluminum composite panels, designed with custom flat cut solid acrylic letters, were used to cover each of the 18 foot tall brick columns.  Each letter of the “TAVERN” name is nearly 2 feet in height.
Window graphics and lettering finished off the exterior design which is sure to help make The Tavern Kitchen & Bar a landmark in St. Louis dining.
