At long last, one of the most anticipated restaurants of the past few years arrived with the opening of Rob Connoley's Bulrush in Grand Center. There's also a new spot to grab pizza and bibimbap while playing pinball, a restaurant geared toward stoners and a sleek new space for pizza and pasta right near Busch Stadium. Plus, a few concepts opened new locations, and Taco Buddha reopened with a new menu in University City after a fire shuttered the restaurant for a few months.
Unfortunately, this month did see a few significant closings: Goody Goody Diner is closed until further notice following a major fire, Brazie's Restaurant shuttered after more than 25 years near The Hill and Scape American Bistro closed its doors in the Central West End.
