The Five Best Restaurants to Die in the Past 12 Months 2012

Selecting the Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis 2012 was no picnic. Choosing the winner meant several worthy candidates would go unmentioned -- until now. In this Gut Check series, we're chewing our way through notable runners up in a number of categories. To see hundreds more winners and finalists, and to download the Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis mobile app, visit our Best of St. Louis home page.

Unlike last week's accounting of the Ten Best New Restaurants in St. Louis 2012, this list was no fun to compile. Still, as much as we love to celebrate the best that St. Louis has to offer, we also must pause to recognize a few former favorites who departed the culinary scene over the past year.

Once again, as with the Best New Restaurants list, our definition of the year runs from October 2011 through September 2012.

While we decided to limit this list to five, these certainly aren't the only good restaurants to close over the past twelve months. Please feel free to suggest some of your favorites in the comments.

It's pretty funny that the RFT just slammed the Bleacher Report for cranking out dumb lists spread over multiple pages as a cheap, shoddy way to increase page views. Now we see this list of five restaurants taking up six pages for the same reason!

I decline to be manipulated in this fashion, so I never go beyond the first page of these so-called "articles".
