St Louis Business Trip Report

gini | Jan 30, 2014 10:51 AM

This was a cold, but delicious visit to St Louis. The food, as always, was rib sticking and warming. Here's how it broke down:
Sweetie Pie's ( fried chicken, collards & cabbage, yams. The fried chicken was perfectly moist, perfectly crisp. Collards & cabbage were tender with a hint of bite. Yams were sweet, falling apart, and slightly spicy. I would eat it all again, but then I think I would get a stomach ache.

Bridge Tap House ( A smoked duck breast salad with smoked gouda - possibly slightly overdressed, but a nice salad (especially the gouda). Cheese board: ROGUE CREAMERY
SMOKY BLUE & IDIAZABAL. Wow. I can see why they're so well known for their cheese & charcuterie plates. Had I not been full of fried chicken, I would have pigged out on cheese & meats for the rest of the night.

Bogardt's Smokehouse ( I skipped breakfast and went here at 10:30 this morning instead. Half a rack of ribs, deviled potato salad, fire & ice pickles. These were great! I found some of the sauces to be a touch too sweet (pineapple, sweet), but the voodoo was pretty fun. Actually, even without sauce these ribs are perfection. So tender, but still flavorful. I'm sad I didn't get to Pappy's, but I just don't seem to have the stomach room!

Tonight, we're heading to iTap in Chesterfield for a client meeting. I'll report back shortly.
