FoodWire: KoBa Closed, but When?


I try my best to stay on top of restaurant openings and closings, but more often than I'd like, a specific event slips past me. Case in point: Chesterfield Korean restaurant KoBa has closed. According to George Mahe's recent openings and closings post on Feast, the location at 138 Chesterfield Town Center will become the third outpost of the Italian restaurant and wine bar Trattoria Branica.

Does anyone know when, roughly, KoBa closed? My best guess, based on its Yelp page, is July. But, again, that's a guess.

KoBa opened in late 2006, and I reviewed it quite positively in January of 2007. It was dubbed Best Korean Restaurant in the 2007 edition of Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis.
