Relocation was the theme in March, with four St. Louis restaurants announcing their closures to move to new digs. Among them was Adam and Jason Tilford's Clayton excellent Clayton pub and soccer-watching hotspot Barrister's, which is moving to another Clayton location, the former home of Mazara at 7923 Forsyth Boulevard.

Notable openings included the first St. Louis location of the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium chain, while two Clayton restaurants, Araka and the venerable The Fatted Calf (12 South Bemiston Avenue, Clayton) were among the prominent closures.

The full list is after the jump. As always, please let us know in the comments what we might have missed.
