If hearing the acronym BLT makes you think of those killer bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwiches at Crown Candy Kitchen, hold onto your hats and wigs — there's a new BLT in town, and it's a got a whole new meaning.
BLT's (626 N. 6th Street, 314-925-8505), the new eatery that opened just one block from the Convention Center downtown, takes its name from what it's serving: breakfast, lunch and tacos. Simple. But even though tacos is the one food that gets name-checked, you don't have to order them while you're here. The fast-casual restaurant has a full roster of foodstuffs, from a riff on avocado toast to the more traditional egg-bacon-pancake platters. Next week, they plan to add happy hour and some evening appetizers from 4 to 9 p.m. as well.The space, which was previously home to Kitchen Sink's second permutation, is massive — about 9,000 square feet. That gives the restaurant a certain luxuriousness. You don't feel bad setting up with a laptop here or taking up a table for four if you're in a party of two. For now, at least, there's plenty of room for all, including even a small lounge-like area with two couches.
