Several months ago, my husband and I were out and about, looking for a dinner spot to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted something low-key but nice — a place where we could get a good burger and an even better bottle of wine — and Olive + Oak ticked those boxes.
It’s 12:45 on a Saturday afternoon, and The Clover and The Bee is fit to bust. The line, which takes over half an hour, spills out onto the sidewalk in front of the chic new Webster Groves spot. Exposed brick, marble countertops, plush emerald green banquettes and a hand-painted floral mural collide to create a vibrant and comfortable space buzzing with action.
The Clover and the Bee, the new breakfast and lunch spot from the folks behind Olive & Oak, is now officially open for business at 100 W. Lockwood Ave. in Webster Groves.The restaurant, which takes its name from the Emily Dickinson poem, “To Make A Prairie,” boasts a bright, airy interior that seats about 45.
From the team behind raved-about dinner destination Olive + Oak comes the Clover & the Bee (100 Lockwood Avenue), a counter-service breakfast and lunch spot in the space next door. After a few days of soft opening, it officially launches today, December 7.
Three weeks ago, SLM got a sneak peek at The Clover and the Bee. This week, the sister restaurant to Olive + Oak opens for breakfast and lunch in the former Webster Groves Bookshop space, at 100 W. Lockwood.
