This spring, a storied Central West End property will celebrate its next stage— this time as a destination for fresh and modern Italian fare.
Edera Italian Eatery will open at 48 Maryland Plaza in the Central West End this spring, as first reported by St. Louis Magazine. The building most recently housed Scape American Bistro and is owned by the Koplar family, who have a long history in real estate, development and communications in St. Louis and specifically in the Central West End.
After Scape closed in April 2019, Sam Koplar of Koplar Properties Inc. says that in the months that followed he was discouraged to hear people concerned about other closures in the Central West End. He sees the current moment in time as a period of transition for the neighborhood — a new chapter in a series of new chapters over its long history.
