  • The buttermilk biscuit sandwich at Winslow's Table was something to be grateful for in November.

St. Louis had a lot to be thankful for in November, with twelve new restaurants and bars debuting or celebrating their grand opening — and only three closing for good.

Of those twelve openings, a handful were some of the most-anticipated restaurants of the year, including Mike and Liz Randolph's Original J's Tex-Mex & Barbecue, Michael and Tara Gallina's Winslow's Table and the Train Shed at Union Station St. Louis. The list is rounded out with a new gluten-free bakery in Kirkwood, a wine and artisan food shop in Shaw and a cafe that supports a good cause, among others.

Here's the complete roster. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.
