Pearl St. Market on the move
JH Weekly has confirmed that Pearl St. Market is moving into the old Teton Steakhouse location. After months of inactivity at the site, remodeling crews have been spotted working on the interior. Co-owner Scott Boxrud said he hopes to be open by Memorial Day.
“Everything will remain pretty much the same,” Boxrud said. “We will have expanded seating and more room for our bakery department.”
Boxrud also plans expanded menu selections including a breakfast buffet. Scant parking at their current location was also a major motivator in the move down the street.
“Obviously, parking was a big issue,” Boxrud said. “At this new location we will be able to capture a lot more tourists and maybe cater to the bus tours that come in.”
At the time of Teton Steakhouse’s closing in early November 2012 it was thought that Graeme Swain, owner of an Omaha, Nebraska restaurant called 7M, was planning an upscale chophouse in that location. When nothing happened for months, Boxrud said he decided to make some inquiries.
“About four weeks ago, after seeing that obviously nothing was happening with the Teton Steakhouse property, we decided to get in touch with the owner,” Boxrud said. “They said they were interested and here we are. We have a long relationship with Clarene Law and she really wanted us in there.”
The property is owned by Old West Corp. Law is listed as that firm’s CEO.
