Taqueria Durango Torta Ahogoda

Taqueria Durango is known for its massive Torta Ahogada.

It's been a sleepy summer month when it comes to restaurant openings in the St. Louis metro area, with just a couple of brand-new concepts. In Richmond Heights, Mezcalieria La Chupacabras is serving up Mexican cuisine alongside an impressive mezcal selection, while Twisted Biscuit Brunch Co. is dishing out biscuits filled with anything from Cheddar to sweet bacon jam to figs. St. Louis also saw at least one joyous post-lockdown reopening; after a devastating fire in March 2020, Taqueria Durango is offering its signature Mexican dishes again in Overland. 

Unfortunately, however, regulars of the beloved J. Greene's Pub will have to find a new watering hole after its closure this month.

Catch up on all of the openings and closings in June 2021 here.
