We lost two long-time St. Louis restaurants this month. Majestic Resturant (4900 Laclede Avenue) left the Central West End after more than 50 years and two generations. Giancarlo's Ristorante (4915 Hampton Avenue) closed as well to give its owners some much-needed R&R. As always, there is still new stuff on the horizon. Check out our list of April's openings and closings, and let us know anything we missed in the comments.
