It’s been a busy week in the STL restaurant scene with openings, closings and national accolades. Here’s what went down, ICYMI.

1. Bon Appétit has announced its list of 50 Best New Restaurants in America, and two of St. Louis’ hottest eateries, Vicia and Nixta, made the cut.

2.  Chef-owner Michael Pastor debuted his new pizza-themed food truck, Pie Hard, on Saturday, July 29, at a soft opening event at his commissary kitchen, located at 8201 W. Main St., in Belleville.

3. Ari Jo Ellis, a member of the Ones To Watch class of 2016, is striking out on her own. Ellis will open The Cut, which will replace the recently closed Little Dipper inside The Fortune Teller Bar at 2635 Cherokee St., at the end of August.

4. Satisfy your sweet tooth at a new bakery in The Grove. Sweetfixx, located at 4420 Manchester Ave., opened July 29, and is serving up sweet treats.

5. The later is still a work in progress (look for an opening later this month), but the new Baileys’ Chocolate Bar reopened yesterday, Aug. 3, after just three weeks of frenzied activity.

6. 4204 Main Street Brewing in Alton recently closed its doors, only to rebrand and open as The Perfect 10 Pub & Grill on Friday, July 28.

7. The St. Louis craft beer boom continues, and it’s finally starting to take root out west. Case in point: Good News Brewing Co., which opened a brewpub in mid-July at 330 Sonderen St., in O’Fallon, Missouri.

8. Manchester has a new specialty store: Pan-Asia Supermarket at 14246 Manchester Road. The 30,000-square-foot grocery hosted its grand opening Saturday, July 22, and offers a wide variety of Asian products, including fresh seafood, dry goods, fruit and veggies, international liquors and spices.

9. After a fire destroyed The Sweet Divine in October last year, the Soulard bakery reopens its shop at 1801 S. Ninth St., Thursday, Aug. 3.

10. Stage Left Diner quietly closed its doors on Monday, July 31. The diner, located at 541 N. Grand Blvd., debuted in September 2016, when owner Steve Smith and restaurant consultant Brad Beracha took over the space next-door to the Fabulous Fox Theatre from the former City Diner.
