September 2011 Openings & Closings [Updated]

Ian Froeb
In what has become a trend, September was a busy month for openings, including Tucci & Fresta's Trattoria & Bar, a higher-end restaurant from the founders of the Pasta House Co., and the highly anticipated, members-only Blood & Sand.

Oddly, it was also a busy month for restaurants changing their names, with two restaurants and a food truck adopting new monikers -- and another restaurant changing its name and concept.

The complete list is after the jump. As always, we welcome additions and corrections in the comments.

BTW, Jonathan Seitz, founder and former owner of Bandara's BBQ is set to open Boodle's BBQ at the former Wendy's location on Gravois near Hwy 21.  It looks to be progressing well, and it's nice to see something go into that Wendy's space that's been vacant since the great Wendy's migration of a few years ago.


Didn't realize Mathew's Kitchen had already opened. Thanks, Fred L.
