4 new St. Louis-area restaurants and bars to try this month

Every month, we make it our mission to try all the new restaurants and bars that open in the area so we can make meaningful recommendations on where you should go. Here's where made the cut in May:

Black Mountain Wine House in the Central West End 
Black Mountain Wine House may be the second location of a business that originated in Brooklyn, New York, but the charmingly rustic, barn-chic vibes are all Missouri. Click here for more about Black Mountain Wine House.

Bonito Bar at Frida's in University City
The new iteration of University City’s Frida’s – which has recently reopened as a plant-forward, pescatarian restaurant – includes Bonito Bar, a little jewel box of a space. Click here for more about Bonito Bar.

Rosé by Peno in Lafayette Square
The intimate dining room at Pepe Kehm’s latest Mediterranean-inspired restaurant has a nightclub-for-grownups feel. Click here for more about Rosé by Peno.
