EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery is opening a second location at the former Busch’s Grove in Ladue. Owners Andy and Dee Dee Kohn are teaming up again with veteran restaurateur and EdgeWild proprietor Chris LaRocca to open the new establishment in early summer 2013.

EdgeWild’s successful formula of affordable American fine wines and inventive American cuisine will expand to the new Ladue location, providing patrons with much of the same feel, experience and cuisine they have come to know, love and expect. The new location, however, will have a greater emphasis on the bar and an increased selection of appetizers.
“It will be the new neighborhood watering hole,” said owner Andy Kohn. “The heart of the restaurant will be an oversized bar where patrons can enjoy everything from local craft beers, cocktails and affordable fine wines to tasty appetizers, chopped salads, sandwiches and burgers.”
