Flavors BBQ Sports Bar & Grill (4317 Manchester Avenue; 314-533-1288) has finally closed for good. The restaurant's furniture is gone, save for the bar and its shelving, and the phone number has been disconnected.

I say "finally closed" because the restaurant had been showing many warning signs over recent months. In September, it closed for a few weeks for a "family emergency" -- a closure that, frankly, I assumed would be fatal. However, it did reopen for at least a couple of weeks.

Flavors could have maddeningly inconsistent hours and service, but I liked its barbecue -- and I loved its smoked chicken wings, one of my 100 Favorite St. Louis Dishes.
