As reported by Gut Check, Hot Box Cookies (3 North Euclid Avenue; 314-899-0909) opened in the Central West End on February 27. The late-night cookie bakery and delivery service originated in 2008 with its flagship in Columbia, later adding a location in Lawrence, Kansas. This is its first St. Louis store, and five more are planned for the St. Louis area in the coming year in spots including the Delmar Loop and downtown.
