closed: fond

just tried to go to the fond website to book a table for our anniversary, but the site is down.  after doing some more digging, we can confirm that fond is now closed for business.

this is just devastating news.  we have no idea why chef amy has decided to close up shop, but we hope it's because she's decided to move closer to st. louis.  eating at fond was one of the most memorable dining experiences we've had, and we're awfully sad that others may not get the chance to try amy's food.  

so. frickin. bummed.


  1. I was really sad to hear about this too. I went there for my birthday dinner and as an Edwardsville/Glen Carbon resident, I always told out of towners about her restaurant. I just heard 222 Bakery is now up for sale too! I'm really hoping we don't continue to lose business on Main.

  2. we read about 222, as well, but we weren't nearly as disheartened because it sounds like it may stay in business, just with a new owner. at least, that's what we're hoping. :)

    now, if sacred grounds shuts down, edwardsville really will be in trouble...
