As COVID-19 restrictions ease across the board and vaccinations become widely available, the St. Louis restaurant scene is continuing to grow. Many restaurants have reopened for business after brief closures, such as Small Batch in Midtown and BEAST Butcher and Block, which returned to The Grove with new sandwiches on its menu, while a few brand-new spots including Amy's Cake Pop Shop and Boozy Bites and the hotly awaited Golden Hoosier have debuted new concepts.
Sadly, May also saw some closures of popular spots: In University City, Boogyz Donuts closed its doors, while Filippo's Italian Kitchen & Bar shuttered in Chesterfield.
