Restaurant notes: Vesuvio erupting again; Thai coming to South Street

Jazz at Eighth and Fitz.

Restaurant notes: Vesuvio erupting again; Thai coming to South Street


Vesuvio, at Eighth and Fitzwater Streets in Bella Vista, has given way to Little Bar, a jazz club. The changes began in December, when Michael D'Addesi closed to fix the building. He reopened the bar area in February. Effective April 29, the rest of the former dining room will be set up as a "bar room" that will feature live jazz till midnight with players such as Greg Matthews. The menu is here. Friday night music schedule is here.

The former Pico de Gallo space on the northwest corner of 15th and South Streets is due to open in June as Sawatdee (that's Thai for "hello"). Project lead is Samarn "Tony" Inchote, a former chef at the Dmitri's in Queen Village, returning to his culinary and personal roots. BYOB, casual. Pico de Gallo exists on the southwest corner of 15th and South as the Baja Room.
