If the Central West End smells extra amazing tomorrow, now you'll know why.

On Friday, January 17, Salt + Smoke (392 North Euclid Avenue, 314-727-0200) will open in the Central West End for lunch service beginning at 11 a.m. The news was announced this morning via a post on the barbecue restaurant's Facebook page.

The location marks the fourth for owner Tom Schmidt, who also operates the flagship in the Delmar Loop as well as outposts in Southampton and St. Charles. The local 'cue chain will expand again later this year with a location inside the second phase of Ballpark Village, as first reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

In the meantime, head to the new digs in the Central West End to enjoy house signatures such as the White Cheddar Cracker Mac, juicy pulled chicken with Alabama-style barbecue sauce, succulent beef brisket and the bacon-Cheddar popovers.
