Restaurant Roll Call: March 2010 Openings and Closings

  • Farmhaus opened in Lindenwood Park this month.
March was a month for much-anticipated openings -- on both ends of the spectrum: Dunkin' Donuts returned to St. Louis, and Kevin Willmann, formerly of Edwardsville's Erato on Main, debuted Farmhaus.

As for closings, it was, thankfully, a quiet month. However, one of the few closings was a significant one: Moxy in the Central West End. Eric Brenner opened his restaurant in 2003, and while I never reviewed it for the RFT, I dined there many times -- almost always on my own dime, which is as high a compliment as I can pay a place.

The list of March openings and closings is after the jump.
