This month was full of good stuff on the food front. Union Loafers is bringing fresh-baked bread and delicious sandwiches to Botanical Heights, joining with Ben Poremba's Olio, Elaia and Old Standard Fried Chicken to create one of the city's most exciting dining districts. Edibles & Essentials, a new market/cafe, opened in St. Louis Hills, providing an excellent option for grab-n-go as well as dining in. And Retreat Gastropub, a stylish new contender, opened its doors in the Central West End.
