1. Get ready to brunch (and barbecue) hard, St. Louis. Spare No Rib is set to move to a new location in South City in mid-August, while its brunch concept Egg takes over the original Spare No Rib space at 2200 Gravois Ave., in Benton Park.

5. Start Bar, downtown St. Louis’ new arcade bar opened Wednesday, July 13 at 1000 Spruce St. The colorful, game-themed space was designed with an eye for detail, from the old school Nintendo console wall art to the narrow tables hidden between game cabinets for drink storage while you play.

6. Absolute BBQ Indian Wish Grill, Chesterfield’s new Indian fusion joint, started serving up lunch and dinner on June 23 at 17409 Chesterfield Airport Road.

 

 

7. The owners of Sugarfire Smoke House are opening another restaurant – but barbecue isn’t on the menu. The Hi-Pointe Drive In will serve griddled burgers on potato buns, fries and shakes in a new space at 1033 McCausland Ave., after tearing down the former Del Taco building at that address.
