An iconic restaurant space in St. Albans, Missouri, is getting a new lease on life.
The restaurant formerly known as Malmaison in St. Albans will reopen this December as The Old Barn Inn. As part of The Inns at St. Albans, a bed and breakfast and event venue, The Old Barn Inn will feature a "seasonal, farm-to-fork" menu that will change every six weeks.
The building was originally built as a barn in 1843 and expanded into a restaurant in 1928. It operated as The Old Barn Inn for decades, before being reopened as Malmaison in the 1980s. When Inns at St. Albans owner Datra Herzog purchased the space in 2004, it was repurposed as an event space but will now be returned to its former glory.
The new International Choux Co. at the Inns at St. Albans features weekend-long deep-dives into seafood, Italian preserving and more.
The restaurant will be headed by Beth Williams, a restaurateur with 27 years of experience who recently shuttered Table Three in Wildwood, Missouri, after 10 years.
“The Old Barn Inn is a dining experience like no other,” Herzog said in a release. “This is the historic heart of The Inns at St. Albans that will once again become the focal point for meals and family gatherings for years to come. We are very excited that Beth Williams and her talented team will become part of this revival.”
Aside from its menu offerings, The Old Barn Inn will also feature a full bar and cocktail menu. The dining room is will seat around 70 guests.
The restaurant is expected to open Dec. 6 and will be open for dinner on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
