For all the high points of March's food developments (a great new bakery in St. Charles! An awesome new concept in the Hill! Great barbecue downtown!), the month's most-talked-about restaurant opening had nothing to do with the grub. This one was all about the pasties — and no, we're not talking about the Cornish variety.

Social House II brought a heap of controversy to the Loop when it took over for Market Pub House on March 4. For now, the body-painted-party continues, though the city is still working in court to bring on last call.

Speaking of last call, Tropical Liqueurs won't make it out of April in Soulard; they've been ordered to serve their last drink by April 9. But don't be too depressed —- did we tell you there's a cat cafe coming to St. Louis? And that Gioia's opens its doors downtown today?
