One of the best restaurants to open last year, Mike Randolph's Little Country Gentleman (8135 Maryland Avenue, Clayton; 314-725-0719) announced on Facebook yesterday that it will close January 11. His adjoining breakfast spot, Half & Half, will remain open as far as we know. We left a message for Randolph for comment; we'll update when we hear from him. Check out the full announcement after the jump.
