Cafe Coeur, a unique restaurant that opened earlier this year in Creve Coeur, Missouri, plans to close its doors.
The restaurant announced the news on Facebook, writing that the restaurant will "be closed for awhile starting Sunday, September 29th." The post adds that the owners are "in the process of evaluating and figuring some things out."
The menu includes matcha linguine and okonomiyaki-style pizza.
Husband-and-wife duo Moshe and Chana Plotnik opened Cafe Coeur on April 7 with a unique concept in mind: kosher Italian-Japanese fusion cuisine. The couple partnered with New York-based restaurateur Yaniv Sides to open the concept, and brought on executive chef Matthew Dawson to develop the menu. At the restaurant, you'll find everything from arancini onigiri and matcha linguine to trumpet mushroom "scallops" and okonomiyaki-style pizza.
"The whole concept is taking kosher to the next level – redefining kosher cuisine and how it relates to people," Dawson previously told Feast. "People have a lot of preconceived notions about what kosher cuisine is, and I just wanted to show that any type of food can be kosher with a bit of forethought, planning and creativity.”
