St. Louis restaurateur Patrick "Pepe Kehm" has opened a new Greek restaurant in St. Charles called Eros.
The "eclectic" Greek taverna, offers a mix of hot and cold small plates, or mezes, Greek-style sandwiches and kebabs on the menu and a rotating selction of big plates written on the chalkboard each night.
Danielle Zavradinos, who calls herself the "resident Greek," said the restaurant opened Aug. 15, just days before the annual Festival of the Little Hills, which attracts hundreds of thousands of people to St. Charles.
"Talk about throwing yourself to the wolves," she said.
Zavradinos said Kehm was looking at spaces and wanted a new place. She said 140 North Main Street "came open at at the right time."
Cobblestones restaurant used to be located in the space.
Eros was described as a restaurant/club, which will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to midnight and will be closed Sunday and Monday.
Kehm has previously been involved with five restaurants in the St. Louis area, according to an article in the St. Louis Business Journal. Those include the now-closed Corky's in Dogtown, Spaghetteria Mamma Mia, which started in Dogtown and moved to South Vandeventer and closed in July 2012, Bistro Toi, open just six weeks.
Kehm is involved with Shiver Vodka Bar and Champagne Lounge on Washington Ave.
