Nov. 21: Serving up traditional Mexican flavors, Fort Taco opened up in Brentwood to offer quality food for those on the go. The menu is small with just two items to choose from: A golden, fried soft shell taco filled with hamburger, cheese, lettuce and tomato or an enchilada with potatoes, cheese and peas. Everything from the tortillas to the salsas is made fresh, so there are no microwaves or freezers to be seen there. According to their website, grandma didn’t have them, so don’t expect any “authentic TV dinners.” 8106 Manchester Road, Brentwood, 314.647.2391

Dec. 5: Following the success of their first spot in Chesterfield, St. Louis’ up-and-coming Korean-fusion joint Kim Cheese just opened its second location in a former Oberweis Dairy on Olive Blvd. Known for their “fast food done right,” the restaurant serves up Korean, Mexican and American flavor combinations in tacos, burgers, salads and more filled with meats like the famous ribeye beef marinated in Korean barbecue sauce. Traditional Korean fare like the bibimbap can also be seen on the wide menu selection. 10441 Olive Blvd., Creve Coeur

Dec. 16: From small-batch roasters to cafe storefront, the team behind ArtHouse Coffee is set to hold its grand opening of Living Room in the former Black Cat Theater in Maplewood next Tuesday after a soft opening this Saturday. The cafe from head roaster Chris Phillips and his business partner, baker Nate Larson, will bring a unique coffee shop experience featuring handcrafted coffees roasted from small batches served alongside freshly baked goods. The owners not only hope to become an integral part of the local community, but also give back to those in need. Every other day, the cafe donates leftover baked items to homeless shelter Gateway 180. Cafe hours will be Tuesday-Saturday from 7am-3pm. 2808 Sutton Blvd., Maplewood, 314.306.7626
