November 2012 Openings & Closings

Image via
Farewell, Spanky's.
Another busy month for openings included Bar Les Freres, a cozy new French spot from Zoë Robinson Pidgeon; Elaia and Olio, the restaurant and wine bar from Ben Poremba; and a new home for Niche, Gerard Craft's flagship venture.

Closings were few, though my colleague Liz Miller's farewell to Spanky's Frozen Custard (11616 Concord Village Avenue, south St. Louis County) drew a lot of attention.

As always, let us know what we missed in the comments.
