New restaurant Twisted Tree will be joining us this July in the space that formerly housed Mile 277. Owned by the Syberg’s Family of Restaurants of St. Louis and The Pear Tree of Macon, Missouri, Twisted Tree is going to be a steakhouse dining destination—which will be completely renovated—with handcrafted cocktails. Expect to also see classics such as The Pear Tree’s signature batter-dipped lobster tail. 10701 Watson Road, Sunset Hills

roosterhen After a year in the brick-and-mortar business, Vincent Van Doughnut is set to open its second location—apart from its also popular original food truck—in The Grove. There will possibly be additional hours at this one to help keep the nightlife district well-fed along with possibly a liquor license as well, as reported by Feast. The handcrafted doughnut shop is aiming for an October opening. 1072 Tower Grove Ave., The Grove

If you’re in the mood for tacos, check out Kirkwood’s new Club Taco. Located in the former Petra space, the restaurant serves a variety of tacos in creative flavors like breakfast all day and plenty of vegetarian options, on house made corn tortillas. 200 N. Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood

In more opening news, Rooster and The Hen’s Michael and Tara Gallina will be offering vegetable-forward, local farmer-driven, wood-fired fare to their new concept called Vicia this fall. The restaurant will be opening in the Cortex Innovation Community in Central West End. 4260 Forest Park Ave., Central West End

Unfortunately lovers of bread from Red Fox Baking will have to bid farewell to the local bakery run out of Grove East Provisions. Their last sales will be this Saturday, June 25 from the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market.
