The Bellwether is a contemporary American restaurant and event space opening in the summer of 2019 at 1419 Carroll Street, in Lafayette Square.
Sister restaurant to Polite Society, The Bellwether marks the second collaboration between proprietors Jonathan Schoen and Brian Schmitz, partner and Beverage Director Travis Hebrank and Executive Chef Thomas Futrell.
The new venture will be located in the upper two floors of the historic St. Louis City Hospital Power Plant. The top level will house The Bellwether dining room, bar and patio. The Reference Room, a private event space with its own rooftop terrace, will occupy the lower floor of the development.
With a foundation of handmade pasta’s and a well considered selection of steaks and chops, the Bellwether menu will feature an evolving array of small plates inspired by prix fixe dinners hosted within the Reference Room.
