As has been the pattern for many, many months now, October saw far more openings than closings. In fact, Gut Check can confirm only one actual closing for the month: the Kirkwood location of Trattoria Branica. (There is one other possible closing.)
As always, let us know of any openings or closings that we missed in the comments.
