Taste (4584 Laclede Avenue; 314-361-1200) one of the 50 best bars in America. A brief blurb does manage to mention "local hero" mixologist Ted Kilgore and of the dishes from chef Adam Altnether.
"Very cool," Kilgore tells Gut Check of the recognition.
"Adam [Altnether] texted me about it," Kilgore says. His initial reaction, he confesses, was confusion: "What is that?"
(Kilgore then recalled Food & Wine asking Taste for photographs a couple of months ago.)
Just today Gut Check revisited Kilgore's mixology magic, as he prepared a "Dear Elisabetta" for our Holiday Cocktail Countdown.
