12 great St. Louis restaurants that are definitely open on Monday, Vol. 4

Mondays are the bane of our existence as restaurant diners. Hardworking food industry staff deserve the day off, but what are we supposed to do? Feed ourselves? Never fear – here's another list of great places that are open on Mondays. 

Deli Divine
Restaurateur Ben Poremba's ode to the authentic Jewish deli is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Indulge that craving for smoked salmon pastrami whenever your heart desires.
5501 Delmar Blvd., Suite 5535D, St. Louis, 314.987.3354,

Wright's Tavern
Nothing is a bigger bummer than when a special occasion hits on a Monday, but our No. 1 pick for Best New Restaurant 2023 has got you – if you're lucky enough to snag a reservation. 
7624 Wydown Blvd., Clayton, 314.390.1466,

Blues City Deli
You can order your favorite sandwich from this St. Louis landmark any day but Sunday. Consider lunchtime saved.
2438 McNair Ave., St. Louis, 314.773.8225,

Cozy Monday nights call for comforting takeout. We love to order ChiliSpot's eggplant with garlic sauce and boiled fish with Chinese green pepper.

Bowood by Niche
There's no reason to restrict brunch to a weekend-only activity and thankfully Bowood by Niche agrees. Pop in any day of the week for a stack of some of our favorite pancakes in town.
