Last summer came news that after almost a decade in Chesterfield, Balaban’s would be returning to its longtime home in the Central West End under new ownership. Although guests will have to wait to dine in the new restaurant, located upstairs at 412 N. Euclid, just across the street from the original Balaban’s, they can now get a taste of all its classic dishes at home.
On Saturday, August 15, local entrepreneur Karen Halper, who purchased Balaban’s from partners Steve McIntyre and Brian Underwood in July 2019, will debut Balaban’s At Home, offering meals for delivery or curbside pickup.
Customers place orders over the phone (314-621-9598) or here 48 hours in advance for Wednesday-Sunday pick up (curbside is free, delivery is offered for a nominal fee). Longtime Balaban’s chef Philip Stemmler has curated a special menu of customer favorites, including Cucumber Bisque, Beef Wellington, and Pasta Ligurian.
