Affton Patch reports that the restaurant closed Tuesday, with a sign on the door announcing the closure as "permanent" The phone number remains connected but wasn't answered this morning.
I reviewed Boodles in January of this year. I liked the ribs and the biscuits a lot -- and I loved the smoked turkey.
