A popular Chesterfield pancake house is set to open at the Colonial Markeplace in about a month.
Gordon Manus, owner of Original Pancake House in Chesterfield, told Patch he invested $900,000 to open his second St. Louis area restaurant.
"We’re just about done with construction. Furniture is coming in Friday of next week, we'll have our China glass and silver next week," he said. "We haven’t turned on the equipment yet, as long as it all works, we’ll be on track."
He said the look will be similar to the Chesterfield spot, known for its rustic look.
"There will be timber wood and pine walls, a big fire place and sky lights," he said. "It’s really nice-looking. You walk in, and you’ll be surprised."
He said the menu will be the same and so will some of the staff when it opens.
"Some of the staff that have been with us here since opening day are going over there, so we’ll start off with a crew that knows what they’re doing," Manus said. He said the staff will total about 25.
Manus said the new location is next to Blown Away Hair Salon.
