This month, St. Louis was treated to several new concepts from veteran restaurateurs. The team behind Retreat Gastropub and Yellowbelly opened Lazy Tiger, a new cocktail bar in the Central West End; the owners of Olive + Oak debuted a new pizza concept in the restaurant's former location; and The Lucky Accomplice, the second restaurant from SHIFT's Logan Ely, opened its doors to the public just yesterday. For those looking to stock up on craft beer and barbecue sauce, BeerSauce Shop opened its third area location in Ballwin.

Sadly, few restaurants did close their doors for good, including the venerable Cousin Hugo's and The Feasting Fox, plus the Chesterfield location of Russell's Café & Bakery (the other locations in Southampton and Fenton remain open).
