The dog days of summer can be a slow time in the restaurant business. Everyone's out of town, the college students are off in Europe or New York City or wherever college kids go these days for internships, and who feels like eating when it's 95 degrees with high humidity? There weren't many closures this month, but there also were very, very few openings. Everyone was just content to wait things out until September.

But hey .... at least we got a new breastaurant in Chesterfield — and our food critic discovered a quickie mart selling amazing tacos! Count your August blessings, and just wait for those Thai-style ice cream rolls to come to the Loop next month. September is looking deliciously promising.
