One of the RFT's best new restaurants of 2015 won't live to see 2017.
St. Louis Magazine reports today that J McArthur's (3500 Watson Road, 314-353-9463), the well-reviewed spot in Lindenwood Park, will be closing its doors after dinner service on December 31. A new concept from the owners of Robust Wine Bar, which has locations in Webster Groves and downtown St. Louis, will premiere in its place in the new year, the magazine reports.The "quintessential American bistro" had earned raves from the RFT's Cheryl Baehr, who wrote in January, "[I]t exists as a reminder to us trend-chasing, food-obsessed folks to stop for a moment and reflect upon timeless cuisine, classic flavors and why seasonal cooking built around relationships with local producers never goes out of fashion." It also made 2015's "best new restaurants" list.
