The Ten Most Important St. Louis Restaurant Openings of the Aughts #6: Local Harvest Café & Catering (2009)


Local Harvest Café & Catering (2009)

If Iron Barley (#8 on this list) represents how the casual neighborhood restaurant evolved in the Aughts, Local Harvest Café & Catering could serve as an example for where things should go in the Teens. Owners Patrick Hornine and Maddie Earnest run the Tower Grove Farmers' Market and, just across the street from the café, Local Harvest Grocery. The grocery and the café try to offer as much local, sustainable produce as possible. This commitment isn't only admirable, as our industrial food system becomes increasingly untenable, it may well be necessary. Best of all, the food, from the breakfast menu to chef Clara Moore's Saturday-dinner tasting menu, satisfies your soul as well as your conscience.
