'The Egg & I' Diner Moving into Old Veritas Space in Chesterfield

The chain has locations in 21 states, including Missouri and was founded in Fort Collins, CO.

'The Egg & I' Diner Moving into Old Veritas Space in Chesterfield

A new breakfast-and-lunch-only diner is planning to move into the space once occupied by Veritas in the Dierbergs plaza at Clarkson and Baxter roads.

A sign in the window of the former Veritas says The Egg & I is coming soon. The chain's existing breakfast-and-lunch diners operate from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. (2:30 p.m. on weekends).

The restaurant also has a location in Des Peres, at 11692 Manchester Road, according to Yelp. The chain has locations in 20 states besides Missouri.

The Chesterfield location at 1722 Clarkson Road would be the second in the region, according to the Gut Check blog at the Riverfront Times. The Times reported that "Brentwood native Robert Gombas, along with two business partners, will be the exclusive franchisee for The Egg & I on the Missouri side of the metro area."

The restaurant chain received zoning approval from the Chesterfield planning and development services division last week, according to Aimee Nassif, the division director. St. Louis County must still review the plans before any building permits are issued.

Gut Check blogger  Ian Froeb reported in June that the chain was founded in Fort Collins, CO. That report said that the Chesterfield location would open by March.

Chesterfield Patch has contacted The Egg & I for more details.
