"There is no denying the pedigree behind St. Louis' most talked about new restaurant, the Libertine. Executive chef Josh Galliano is a veritable legend in the St. Louis culinary community, best known for his time at the acclaimed, yet now shuttered, Monarch. He has garnered several James Beard Award nominations and last year won Food and Wine's 'People's Best New Chef-Midwest' award. In other words, he is kind of a big deal."
