In just a few months you can sample Karen Mott's breakfast and lunch menu at The Barn!
Crestwood aldermen have welcomed a North Carolina resident into the local business community as the new tenant of Sappington House Barn. Aldermen tabled a motion two weeks ago to choose one of three recommended tenants, hoping to hear from management at Richmond Heights' Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium. Representatives with Fozzie's, however, withdrew their request to convert the barn into a second location for the sandwich shop. After a failed motion in favor of a concept from Sunset Hills resident Mike Matthes, aldermen approved N.C. resident Karen Mott as the new tenant. Mott was the choice favored by the city's park board, as well as the Sappington House Library of Americana Trust. Mott's proposal, The Barn, will serve traditional American…

Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium, non-profit Masterpeace Studios, and a "farm to table" restaurant are among eight proposed venues for the vacant space.
A decision on the Sappington Barn Center’s next tenant was postponed as Crestwood’s Board of Aldermen seek the Park Board’s feedback on the submitted proposals. Four restaurants have filtered through the Sappington Road space since 1999, the last of which was The Tea Barn in 2011. While aldermen welcomed proposals for new eating establishments, they also wanted to consider other uses. Winery, bike store, and catering facility were among alternatives proposed, according to staff memos. Eight proposals were handed in to the city by Aug. 1—and nearly all of them offer meals or snacks. Several of the proposals also aim to catch the attention of those who walk, bike, and run along Grant’s Trail. Patch obtained copies of the proposals from the …

Crestwood Aquatic Center to open May 26, will host a free showing of Jaws May 25.
The Crestwood Park Board had a full agenda last night, open with newly elected Alderman Dan Tennessen giving the aldermanic report. “Parks is one of my favorite subjects when it comes to Crestwood,” Tennessen said. Tennessen’s report started off with Culver’s being approved to be built near Sam’s Club. “That’s really exciting for us; it’s a really good looking restaurant,” he said. “We have that little niche (of space) and that’s some really good retail.” Also in his report was the approval of the request for the $19,500 budget for Kohl’s to be the Aquatic Center’s concessions provider. The Aquatic Center is set to open to the public May 26. A free showing of Jaws will be shown May 25 in the competition pool. Patrons are free to swim or …

A farmer’s market, trail-related shop were among ideas pondered at last week’s meeting.
Approximately 30 calls ranging from established banquet-type facilities to “mom and pop” start-ups were fielded regarding the Sappington Barn Center Request for Proposals issued in February. The deadline to issue a formal RFP to the City of Crestwood was April 3, however ultimately there were no responses, leaving Director of Public Services James Eckrich at a loss as to how to proceed. The Board of Alderman had an open brainstorming session at last week’s meeting, admitting that right now they are in the idea phase for uses of the Barn and adjacent parking lot rather than the solution phase. The site was shown to 5-7 people, and after initial interest died down, Eckrich discussed the issue with the city administrator and the mayor, …
