Eagle-eyed St. Louis Magazine dining editor George Mahe, who was first to report the possible (and, in fact, actual) closure of Riddles Penultimate Café & Wine Bar, is also the first to notice that Il Vicino has made the closure of its Clayton location permanent.

Il Vicino closed in September after a flue fire. On a statement posted on its website, dated November 4, Il Vicino states that water damage has made reopening "impossible."
