The dog days of summer have smiled fondly on the St. Louis restaurant scene, bringing back plenty of favorites that have been closed temporarily. In the Central West End, Brennan's is back after a devastating fire, and Taste and The Tenderloin Room have both returned after a pandemic hiatus. The city has also seen new locations of old favorites, like DD Mau and Clementine's Creamery, while welcoming newcomers like the Columbia transplants at Sugarwitch.
But as it goes, St. Louis also had to say goodbye to some old favorites. Chinese food-lovers in Brentwood will have to find a new favorite spot after the closing of Hunan Wok, and South City has lost a piece of its music scene with The Way Out Club now permanently closed.
Read below for all of the openings and closings that went down in St. Louis this July.
