Best Takeout Counter (Gourmet Division) St. Louis 2007 - The Smokehouse Market
The Smokehouse Market nearly drowned in the great flood of 1993. Now it's sitting on top of the world, with a selection of cheeses, meats and its signature sauces so good that you'd drive from anywhere else in the metro area all the way out to Chesterfield without thinking twice. Those who live in Chesterfield are especially lucky: For them it's no big deal to zip over to the Smokehouse Market to pick up lunch or dinner. Whether you're looking for a simple lunch of soup and a corned-beef sandwich (as if anything as good as this market's fare could be called simple), fantastic barbecue brisket, a pasta salad or a more elaborate dinner, like horseradish-encrusted Copper River sockeye salmon, that you can try to pass off on friends and family as your own, the Smokehouse Market has many things that will appeal to you. Try some of the items out for sampling, and you'll find yourself buying twice as much as you planned.
