The first flowers of spring are in bloom and several new restaurants have opened their doors in St. Louis this season.
James Beard Semifinalist Nick Bognar wowed us with sushi spot Sado this month; plus, City Winery opened up inside City Foundry STL and Tim’s Chrome Bar welcomed guests into its retro space near Bevo Mill.
We’re sad to say goodbye to 21st Street Brewers Bar, PW Pizza and Vin de Set – the three businesses shared a building near Lafayette Square that was damaged by a fire back in September of last year. They’ve unfortunately shuttered for good.
Chef-owner Matt Borchardt also closed Edibles & Essentials in St. Louis Hills, but will become executive chef at the new Ronald McDonald House in The Grove.

These are the restaurants that opened and closed in March.
Update: We’re so bummed to share that BEAST Butcher & Block in The Grove had its last day of service on March 26.
However, its store in Belleville, Illinois, remains open, as does the roaming BEAST food truck and food stall in CITYPARK.
The award-winning barbecue spot will still host Easter brunch in The Grove on April 9, along with pre-ordered Easter pickups scheduled for that day. If you booked a barbecue demonstration class, those are also still on for April 8, 15, 22 and 29.
The owners expect to park the BEAST food truck at The Grove location periodically – stay tuned.
