Last Night: Photos from the RFT's Iron Fork Competition at Union Station

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 12:58 PM

Last night, the business department for the Riverfront Times staged its annual Iron Fork chef competition. New this year was a bartending competition (photos on page 2.) The venue was the Marriott Hotel at St. Louis' Union Station, and in addition to the food-and-drink prep throwdown, more than 25 area restaurants offered their food for sampling. If you missed it, here's a recap.
