Booster's Cafe, 567 Melville Ave.

Booster's Cafe has opened at 567 Melville Avenue in the Delmar Loop. The menu features breakfast from 7-10 a.m. and lunch from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Lunch selections include sandwiches (e.g., a sandwich with proscuitto, pear and brie), soups and salads.

This one really came in under the radar, folks. I walk by Melville almost every weekday and didn't spot it till today.

There's no good segue here, but to follow up on yesterday's post about the continuing storm over Chinese imports: Zheng Xiaoyu, the former head of China's food and drug administration who in May was sentenced to death, was executed today.
