  • A torta at Mission Taco Joint, which recently opened the doors to its newest outpost, in the old Gringo spot in the Central West End.

We lost some good ones this month. The Stratford Bar & Grill said goodbye, and the Hilltop served its last lunch on Friday (though it's still open for drinks throughout June). Even the Hideaway, that bastion of cheap booze and good piano music, announced it will be closing temporarily as of June 2. (See more about that here.)



But there's also some good news. Several new places are now open on Cherokee Street (including Mexcla, which technically opened last month but just got an RFT visit in May). Mission Taco Joint continues its quest for world domination in the Central West End. The Red Shack is now bringing Tex-Mex to Dogtown. And there are a whole bunch of things in motion at the Chase Park Plaza
