St. Louis Magazine recently quoted 40 South from 2014, where it was said that Toasty Subs, at 3001 S. Big Bend, “never opened and never will.” That was a year after the signs went up with no progress. St. Louis magazine now says,”never say never,” and that Toasty Subs will open soon.
According to the magazine, the owner’s wife had a health scare, which caused him to abandon Toasty Subs at the time. Now his wife is OK and they plan to open this month. The owner, Alex Liu, told St. Louis Magazine he’s always liked the 50-seat building, with its patio and drive-through.
Sub sandwiches will come in three sizes, and sushi (the sushi in a month or two). Alex’s wife, Lily, runs Sushi Kitchen, with clients such as BJC and the St. Louis Cardinals.
