The Press Box in Chesterfield has officially transformed into Scarecrow, complete with new signage and branding.
The change started in early January when the sports bar was purchased by friends Chris Mertz and Shawn Mulholland with the intention of turning it into an upscale-casual restaurant. The business remained open as they renovated the interior and on Jan. 23, the new signs went up, signaling the transition.
The menu is receiving an overhaul along with the interior. The pair brought in a new executive chief to help bring a new focus to the restaurant's fare with the goal of creating distinct menus for lunch, dinner and the bar. Small plates, steaks and high-end pizzas will be a big part of the new offerings.
On Tuesday, Mulholland said their first few weeks have gone very well and he's already started to see repeat customers. However, he added that the restaurant's transformation is not yet complete and the menu is not yet finalized.
They've added blinds to separate the bar from the rest of the dining room and installed a wine cellar, but they will also be replacing some of the existing furniture to finish the new look.
The change is just in time for Valentine's Day as well with Scarecrow offering a special menu for the holiday, according to the restaurant's website.
