St. Louis Restaurant Openings and Closings: June 2020

St. Louis Restaurant Openings and Closings: June 2020

It's certainly been a tumultuous few months in the local dining scene. In mid-March, restaurants were required to close for dine-in service to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and, as the state has reopened, many have slowly started to welcome in guests again with enhanced sanitation and social distancing measures in place.

Unfortunately, a few places did close their doors for good amid the pandemic, including 5 Star Burgers' Creve Coeur location, Gamlin Whiskey House and Tavolo V. This month, Local Chef Kitchen in Ballwin also announced it would be closing its doors following the death of chef-owner Rob Uyemara earlier this year. 

But, believe it or not, it's not all bad news. Several new concepts have debuted in the St. Louis area this month, featuring limited dine-in service as well as curbside pickup and delivery for those who'd rather enjoy their meals at home. The team behind Sugarfire Smoke House and Hi-Pointe Drive-In has launched Chicken Out, a "faster casual" chicken joint in the Delmar Loop, while Zenwich is serving Asian-inspired sandwiches and ramen in the Central West End.

A few popular restaurants expanded their reach, too. Mission Taco Joint unveiled a massive new location in Kirkwood that features a tortilla production line and, soon, an arcade, and the national chain Shake Shack from St. Louisan Danny Meyer has opened its second area location in Ladue.
