St. Louis Restaurants Openings & Closings: March 2018

  • Doughocracy has closed in the Loop, but no less than five new pizza joints have opened in the metro area.
March was an incredibly busy month in the St. Louis restaurant scene — with several much-discussed closures and a veritable flood of openings.

On the closure side, Milagro Modern Mexican closed its doors in Webster Groves, even while continuing to search for a new home; Dorsett Inn is becoming Johnny's West and two more spots said goodbye to the Loop. Oh, and the Purple Martin's reboot failed to take off; it said goodbye (again) to Fox Park.

And on the opening side, a host of new pizza places are now serving the city, from the long-awaited Firecracker Pizza & Beer in the Grove to a promising newcomer in the Central West End to a cozy family spot, Anthony's, in Clayton. Other highlights include Asian fusion (from the Cafe Mochi family) on South Grand and a few new breweries.

See our complete list below. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.
