In our monthly Sound Bites segment in partnership with Sauce Magazine, host Steve Potter spoke with the magazine’s executive editor Ligaya Figueras and art director Meera Nagarajan about what is up-and-coming in the St. Louis food scene.
Among the highlights of the conversation were what restaurants have good patios, what’s new at the Loop, and two barbecue restaurants set to open soon. Also covered were hit lists of restaurants that focus on being healthy and places that are kid friendly.
As for food and drink trends, evidently cauliflower is the new kale. Hawaiian food is on the rise. And there is plenty of experimentation with unusual ingredients to go around. Strange Donuts has come out with a seaweed donut, and Pastaria has a pickle fennel lemon gelato.
