A smorgasbord of restaurant openings tempts diners

All across St. Louis, several long-awaited openings are finally coming to fruition as fall sets in. In the Central West End, the legendary Richard Perry -- famous for popularizing regional ingredients at his Jefferson Avenue Boarding House back in the late '70s and later a part of upscale restaurants on Jefferson and downtown bearing his name -- has opened Richard Perry's Lindell Terrace Café on the ground floor of the Lindell Terrace building at 4501 Lindell Blvd.

Down on Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard (formerly Wharf Street), the doors are opening at Mesquite Charlie's on the Robert E. Lee, a steakhouse that finally revives a fine-dining option on one of the city's greatest geographical assets, the riverfront. And out west, the much-loved football-Cardinal tight end is set to open Jackie Smith's Louisiana Café at 1308 Clayton-Clarkson Center in Ellisville -- a space that formerly housed Patrick's and, most recently, The Gallery.
