  • Avocado toast is just one of the offerings at Kaldi's Coffee, now open at Citygarden.

April saw a flurry of action on the restaurant front, with places opening and closing across the area, from downtown to Chesterfield. Well-loved concepts such as Crushed Red, McArthur's Bakery Cafe and Kaldi's Coffee all opened new outposts — Kaldi's in a gorgeous glass box at Citygarden. Meanwhile, a beloved dive bar closed in Valley Park, Fortel's succumbed to tax problems in U. City and the Fryer's Daughter said goodbye after just (seriously) two weeks.

And hey! We've also got some positively giant milkshakes drawing crowds on Delmar. See what we meant by "flurry"?
