Sugarfire Smoke House's newest location is open for business.
The downtown restaurant (605 Washington Avenue, 314-997-2301) opened today for the first time at 11 a.m. and quickly drew a host of eager barbecue fans.It adjoins the National Blues Museum, which itself is set to open on April 2. The sizable space has a music theme to go with the museum, including portraits of blues greats Robert Johnson and B.B. King. The menu, though, will be utterly familiar to Sugarfire enthusiasts: It's the same as the original Sugarfire in Olivette, as well as its subsequent spinoffs in St. Charles and O'Fallon, Missouri.
