The Precinct (formerly Jim Edmonds Steakhouse) is set to open on Mon., Oct 14.
Owner Mark Winfield and his business partner, former St. Louis Cardinals' center fielder Jim Edmonds, said previously that they decided to make the switch in response to a changing local demographic.
“We need to be a place where people are comfortable coming in three or four times a week, not just a special occasion once a month,” Winfield says. “The quality of the food is not going down at all; it's just the type of food that will be different.”
The food will appeal to the 600 to 900 employees of the nearby police headquarters at 1915 Olive Street. The décor will pay homage to the target clientèle – televisions, Cardinals memorabilia and photos depicting police, firefighters and other first responders.
The menu will feature appetizers of pretzel sticks with beer cheese dip and traditional and buffalo chicken toasted raviolis; Precinct wings (choice of garlic Parmesan, black pepper pure, buffalo, "officer needs assistance" or "officer down sauce"); sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs; and entrees of mustard crusted chicken, fish 'n chips and kielbasa and sauerkraut and blackened port flat iron steak. Warm donuts will serve as a dessert option.
The Precinct's grand-opening party is set for Sat., Oct. 26, and will feature Elton John cover band Dogs of Society.
Space 15 is still open for weddings, rehearsal dinners, private events, etc. The former nightclub is closed.
The Precinct, 1900 Locust Ave., Downtown
