June had a few more closings than last month, but there are plenty of exciting things springing up, too. St. Louisans have been lamenting the late Growlers, which closed its second location. Cherokee Street welcomed two new ventures: Table, from the people at Home Wine Kitchen, and Melt, which moved from south Carondelet.

As always, please let us know in the comments of any openings or closings we missed.
