ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis landmark is moving to a new location.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that McMurphy's Grill closed late last month after 22 years on North 11th Street downtown. It's expected to reopen sometime this year in the St. Patrick Center on North Tucker Boulevard.

The center has run McMurphy's since 1990. It serves as an employment and culinary training program for St. Patrick clients who are homeless or coping with mental health problems.

McMurphy's continues to operate express kiosks at City Hall and the Carnahan Courthouse in St. Louis, continuing jobs for up to 40 people.
