This Tuesday, we put up an interview with Bob Brazell, the chef at Athlete Eats (2837 Cherokee Street; 314-932-5566). And guess what? He's leaving the restaurant.

Pappy's Smokehouse (3106 Olive Street; 314-535-4340) is apparently the place to eat if you're a visiting celebrity. Hugh Jackman stopped by in April and ate a lot of ribs while in town for WWE Raw. Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz is here with his team to play a series against the Cardinals which began last night. A few hours before the game, he stopped by the legendary barbecue restaurant.

Members-only restaurant and bar Blood & Sand (1500 St. Charles Street; 314-241-7263) has filed a lawsuit against a restaurant and bar also called Blood & Sand in Buffalo, New York. The St. Louis restaurant is suing over trademark infringement -- it owns "Blood & Sand" when it has anything to do with restaurants. "Instances of actual confusion have occurred because of Defendant's use of Blood & Sand," the suit alleges.
