For those of you who haven't been following the saga: Red is a new Loft District restaurant featuring the unexpected pairing of Eastern European cuisine and the techniques of molecular gastronomy. The grand opening was originally scheduled for early July, and the restaurant was even slated to participate in Downtown Restaurant Week.

Will it make the new date? You know we'll be on the case.

As long as we're on Washington Avenue: In spite of its review (preview?) in the latest issue of a certain other St. Louis publication, the new location of Mosaic at the corner of Washington and 10th Street isn't, um, alive yet. The original location at Lucas Avenue and 11th Street remains open. A location in Kirkwood is also in development.

Finally, in today's Post-Dispatch, Deb Peterson reveals that Lester Miller is planning multiple locations of Lester's Sports Bar & Grill -- though not in St. Louis or even Missouri. You can read my review of Lester's right here.
