FInd out when the popular Brentwood donut shop could re-open.
Devoted fans of Ray's Donuts in Brentwood and Creve Coeur have been met with a sign saying the shops are closed until further notice due to a water main break at the bakery's production facilities in Breckenridge Hills, in north St. Louis County. Operations Director Bill Risburg told Patch the business had to close down Friday, Saturday and Sunday, what he called the donut shop's "bread and butter days" in terms of sales, because of the problem. He said the hope was that it would be fixed by Monday in time for business to be open Tuesday. Patch will update this story Monday with new information if it becomes available.

The shop moved out of Deer Creek Center last year.

He added beer last summer, and said it didn’t add greatly to his business. The pizza itself…

Earlier this year Riverfront Times' Gut Check asked readers to vote for their favorite of St. Louis' "most underrated fried chicken"-- and The Piccadilly at Manhattan got snubbed.

"Any option you opt for will offer up a serving of fried chicken sporting a light golden hue and a moist, tender interior that will have you repeatedly reaching for the nearest napkin, or better yet, one of the wet naps that your …
