South Grand Gyro Express (5622 South Grand Boulevard; 314-481-1033) has reopened after closing "until further notice" last June. Not only has the restaurant returned, so have the original owners, Kahled and Tamana Nagshbandi. (Khaled came with his family to the United States from Afghanistan via the Soviet Union.)

The menu has changed. In addition to falafel, biryani and kabobs, the restaurant also now offers hot dogs, cheesesteaks and Italian beef sandwiches. Vitally, though, the gyro sandwich, one of my 100 Favorite Dishes, remains.
