The school year is just beginning, fall is (hopefully) just around the bend and plenty of new restaurants have cropped up in St. Louis. Le Ono opened in O'Fallon, Illinois, bringing a taste of Hawaii and French Polynesia to the Midwest. The Key Bistro – serving French-inspired fare – opened inside the Missouri History Museum, and chef John Perkins' newest concept, Sunday Best, opened in the Central West End. Unfortunately, August also saw some restaurant closings around town.
The last official day of service for esteemed Thai restaurant King & I was August 13, but guests won't have to wait long to visit its new location in Richmond Heights, which is due to open in September. Lulu's Local Eatery closed on South Grand Boulevard, and Gregg's Bar & Grill, a North St. Louis staple for 48 years, shuttered this month as well. Catch up on all of August's restaurant openings and closings below. Openings 3 Little Monkeys, 3172 Morgan Ford Road, Tower Grove South, St.
