Clayton Restaurateurs Alliance

Frank Schmitz, owner of Barcelona's in Clayton, has formed the Clayton Restaurateurs Alliance in opposition to a Clayton restaurant smoking ban. Quite an effort is being made by Mr. Schmitz's group to halt any smoking ban in Clayton. Mr. Schmitz has invited restaurater Harry Belli, who lost his Ballwin restaurant Harry's West to the Ballwin smoking ban, and Federal Reserve economist Dr. Michael Pakko, who has extensively researched the economic impact of smoking bans, to join his argument against a Clayton smoking ban.

Barcelona's is one of five Clayton venues that clear their air with Marth Brothers & Co air filtration.
