As our Fall Conference & Expo in St. Louis, Missouri approaches, we’re looking forward to trying some of the delicious food at local restaurants.
Here are some local favorites, not only offering great menus but also a unique experience.
- Morgan Street Brewery was established in 1995, but the property has a long history dating back to 1791! In fact, it is the site where the first Mulatto slave, named Esther, was freed! Today, you can sample a variety of local and international beer. Free tours of the historical building are offered.
- Lombardo’s Trattoria was established in 1934, which means the restaurant has been cooking its wonderful Italian menu for a while now. It is open for lunch Wednesday-Friday, and it stays open late for dinner. Also, it’s a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and quality food after spending your day at the Expo!
- Sugarfire Smoke House is the BBQ restaurant you’ve been waiting to try. It has won awards, and you can only find it in Missouri. The downtown location is the newest yet, prices are affordable and its cook produces melt-in-your-mouth excellence.
- Zia’s was founded in 1985 and has gone on to win many awards AND start a food truck service in 2011. Zia’s is part of “The Hill”, a neighborhood specializing in all things Italian. This neighborhood boasts a historical atmosphere, making you feel welcome and at home.
- Blue City Deli truly speaks to the blues culture of St. Louis. Its food is worth waiting for, and you’ll have plenty to look at and listen to while in line for your meal. This is a must for a true St. Louis experience.
- The Schlafly Tap Room hosts various events throughout the year, including live music. The original buildings were constructed in 1902 and 1904, and they’ve seen a lot of history since those days. Eventually, this building will be part of the historical registry, and you can check out all the neat history compiled for the registry application on its website. Local history, local music and local food…what more could you want?
