As the days get shorter, so too does our list of restaurant openings and closings. In our experience, many restaurants aim for a summer opening and end up instead greeting their first customers in the fall — but very few aim for an autumn opening and then end up pushing back to the winter. It makes much more sense to wait til the weather is nice. And for places thinking about closing their doors, well, why not get in one last holiday season before saying goodbye?

Still, November was not bereft of movement — thanks largely to Bar Rescue, which came to St. Louis and helped usher out two old concepts even while creating two new ones. So it's goodbye to Van Goghz and O'Kelley's — hello to Crafted and Pastimes on 4th.

Read on for the rest of November's restaurant action. And get ready to say goodbye soon to Pizzino — the well-reviewed Clayton pizzeria closes it doors this Saturday, kicking off next month's list almost as soon as December gets started.
