Openings

March 5: Columbia, Missouri, just got a little more strange. Doors opened to massive crowds and lines out the door with the highly anticipated arrival of Mizzou territory’s own duo-joint of Strange Donuts and Seoul Taco last week. A counter on one side features the savory Asian-fusion tacos while the Done Zone lies on the other with the wide variety of doughnuts to choose from. The collaborative space shares a seating area, some upcycled decor and a large stadium Mizzou “M” for the college town. 1020 E. Broadway, Columbia, MO

Sept. 1: Chef Gerard Craft recently announced his addition of a new fast-casual restaurant Porano Pasta & Gelato coming to The Mercantile Exchange area Downtown. The area will continue to be a go-to for foodies in St. Louis as Sugarfire Smoke House announced yesterday that the popular barbecue joint will begin service with a new location being placed right next to the National Blues Museum. As first reported by St. Louis Post Dispatch, co-owner Mike Johnson has wanted to open a restaurant Downtown for a while. This will be the fourth location for Sugarfire. 605 Washington Ave., Downtown

Closings

March 8: Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese closed its doors last weekend after five years in service. The Loop spot is currently auctioning off all its equipment and wares through March 16. 6602 Delmar Blvd,. The Loop
