12 great St. Louis restaurants that are definitely open on Monday night

We’ve all been there: You absent-mindedly made dinner plans with your friend for Monday, and now it’s Monday afternoon and you’ve realized the spot you wanted to hit is closed. And your backup is closed. And that other place you didn’t even really want to go to is closed. Don’t cancel your plans! Finding a great spot to eat at on a Monday night in St. Louis is truly an art - luckily for you, we understand your pain and have created this list to soothe your Monday night woes. 

Here are a few places that are definitely open on Monday night (at least at the time of the publication of this list).
