If everything goes according to plan, St. Louis will have a new way to get its fried chicken fix this week. Last week former Quincy Street Bistro executive chef Rick Lewis told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he anticipates opening his joint venture with Pappy’s Smokehouse, Southern, on June 18 or 19. The restaurant, located next to Pappy’s, will serve Nashville-style hot chicken, sandwiches and southern sides. 3108 Olive St., Midtown,
