FLORISSANT, MO (KPLR)- It's been a St. Louis dining institution for 95 years and now it's saying goodbye. The owners of Yacovelli’s Restaurant and Catering in Florissant have decided to retire and are closing their restaurant and banquet hall.

Family, friends, and employees will gather for their “Last Chance Dinner Dance” on Friday. The restaurant will be open this weekend and on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. The banquet hall’s final party will be on New Year’s Eve.
