The national buzz just keeps coming for the St. Louis food scene — now Zagat thinks we're awesome too.
In a roundup of the 30 "most exciting food cities in America," the Google-owned site placed St. Louis at No. 17 — ahead of heavyweights Minneapolis and Nashville and just two spots behind New York City. Hot damn!Writes Zagat,
This year, chefs in The Gateway City prove there’s no place like home. Vicia — the year’s biggest opening and a Bon Appétit best new restaurants finalist — brought chef Michael Gallina (previously Blue Hill at Stone Barns) back to his hometown, and NYC’s Danny Meyer makes a homecoming of his own with the opening of the state’s first Shake Shack.The item also praises Balkan Treat Box, Guerrilla Street Food, Nudo House, Nixta, Hi-Pointe Drive-In and Mac's Local Eats (all of them the recipients of raves from the RFT, thank you very much).
