3 new St. Louis-area restaurants you need to try

Every month, we make it our mission to try all the new restaurants and bars that open in the area so we can make meaningful recommendations on where you should go. Here's where made the cut in March:

Amaizing Arepa Bar in downtown St. Louis
Venezuelan cuisine is still in short supply in St. Louis, so we were thrilled when Tower Grove Farmers’ Market vendor Amaizing Cakes Latin Food opened Amaizing Arepa Bar in downtown St. Louis. Click here for more information.

Stews Food & Liquor in Soulard
The laid-back, friendly vibe at Stews is immediately contagious, thanks to co-owner and bartender Nate Burrows’ bright personality and knack for hospitality. Click here for more information.

Urban Kitchen in Chesterfield
The sister restaurant to Olivette-based Share Sweet builds on its forerunner’s boba tea-and-dessert formula with a lengthy menu. Click here for more information.
