St. Pascual's Kitchen

From FranaWiki

St. Pascual's Kitchen was a River Market restaurant owned by Nancy Newell. The restaurant featured eclectic cuisine, including soups, sandwiches, and dishes prepared from fresh vegetables. St. Pascual's motto was "food for the heart and soul." St. Pascual is the patron saint of the kitchen and cooks.

Newell closed the restaurant, located at 307 East Markham Street, to focus on catering and private parties at the reopened Ten Mile House. St. Pascual's chef, Billy Ginocchio, is the chef at LaScala. The storefront is now occupied by Avanti Cyber Café.
