The fate of Flavors BBQ Sports Bar & Grill (4317 Manchester Avenue; 314-533-1288) remains unclear. Gut Check reported last week that the restaurant, home of one of my favorite St. Louis dishes, had temporarily closed due to a "family emergency" -- and had been closed for a week at the time of that report.

That closure stretched into this week. Yesterday, however, at about 5 p.m., I happened to drive past the restaurant and saw that the "temporarily closed" sign had been taken down and that the restaurant was apparently open.

I still haven't been able to get in touch with anyone at Flavors to find out whether it has resumed its regular hours. So if you've been jonesing for those smoked chicken wings, you'd better call the restaurant before you head over there.
