Flavors BBQ Sports Bar & Grill (4317 Manchester Avenue; 314-533-1288)
has finally closed for good. The restaurant's furniture is gone, save for the bar and its shelving, and the phone number has been disconnected.
I say "finally closed" because the restaurant had been showing many warning signs over recent months. In September, it closed for a few weeks for a "family emergency"
-- a closure that, frankly, I assumed would be fatal. However, it did reopen
for at least a couple of weeks.
Flavors could have maddeningly inconsistent hours and service, but I liked its barbecue -- and I loved its smoked chicken wings
