  • Salt opened in the old Savor space on Lindell Boulevard this month.
A fairly busy month for comings and going on the St. Louis restaurant scene. Among the high-profile openings were Salt, from chef Wes Johnson (Eclipse, the Shaved Duck) and Bocci Bar, from the folks who brought you BARcelona. Closings included the excellent Edwardsville, Illinois, restaurant Fond.
