For months, it seemed as though the new Rosalita's Cantina West County location would never open, but after its debut this year (just in time for Cinco de Mayo, naturally) it's clear to see why – and it was worth the wait. The restaurant is located in an old, long-ago abandoned Casa Gallardo, although after an extensive gutting, refurbishing and expansion, you'd be hard-pressed to remember the building’s previous drab existence. The new restaurant is truly a beauty, meticulously decorated and designed in such a way as to make you feel you are dining out of town, rather than in the middle of a parking lot just seconds away from the bustling intersection of Manchester Road and I-270. As you’d hope, the food is a delicious compliment to the amazing ambience.

St. Louis weather can be fickle, but we certainly have our share of beautiful days to enjoy. Knowing that sunshine and mild temps can be here one day, gone the next, you’ll want to be prepared to take full advantage of those stunners when you simply must dine outdoors. Here are a few highlights of places you can try and bring the kids along, too.

Mom. She does a million things for everybody, all the time, so doesn’t she deserve a little break? Luckily, there’s a wide array of places offering Mother’s Day Brunch specials sure to make mom feel just that: special! Here’s just a sampling of events celebrating these wonderful ladies on Sunday, May 14. Plan ahead, as advance reservations are a must for this popular holiday (and more often than not are required). The best part of it all? They not only cook for you, but they also clean up after!
