It’s time to say good-bye to some local favorites at St. Louis and eat elsewhere. Three St. Louis restaurants have closed or plan to close by the end of June.
Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina, a restaurant that recently opened last October, closed. Their website says, “It is with a heavy heart that we inform everyone that Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina has, in fact, closed our doors for good. We appreciate your patronage over the past seven months and have had a blast.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote that the restaurant’s North Carolina location is still open.
Garavelli’s Cafeteria Restaurant decided to close on June 28th. They announced on their Facebook page, “It is with deep sadness that we announce the closing of Garavelli's Cafeteria. After many great years with all of you, we have made a decision to close our doors and do what we think best. We encourage you to come in and get one last delicious meal and say your goodbyes.”
And after forty-one years of service, Duff’s Restaurant will be closing on June 24th. River Styx, a literary organization responsible for Duff’s weekly poetry readings, will continue their events at the Tavern of Fine Arts. The last reading will be in the restaurant on June 24th at 7 P.M., STL Beacon reported.
Although you’d have to visit North Carolina for more Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina, you can still have your last meals at Garavelli’s Cafeteria and Duff’s Restaurants before they close for good.
