It may be the dog days of summer, but there's still a buzz of activity in the St. Louis culinary scene. Coffee shops and bakeries, like Amy's Corner Bakeshop, were everywhere this July, but we were pretty excited about the International Tap House's new Central West End location.
Jilly's Cupcakes closed its second location in Des Peres, only to announce a new deal with Schnucks the same day. Other establishments were not so lucky, like Marshall's Bistro, which closed after just five months.
As always, please let us know in the comments of any openings or closings we missed.
