  • St. Louis-style ribs at Boundary, the new restaurant now open in the Cheshire Hotel.

After a rough start to the new year, with high-profile closings from downtown to Sunset Hills, February proved full of good news for St. Louis diners. Stunning new restaurants opened in the Chase Park Plaza and the Cheshire Hotel, while Olive + Oak drew positive buzz in Webster Groves and the Slider House brought an astonishing array of wee sandwiches to Rock Hill in its soft opening last week.

And there's even more good news on the way: Mission Taco and Shake Shack are both headed to the Central West End, though one will be here much sooner than the other. Yes, we lost a few good ones last month, but happy days feel like they're here again.
