Yeah, yeah, so these days our food scene is getting raves from the national press
. But we've long gotten raves from a megaphone that, if anything, is even bigger: The shows on the Food Network.
Everyone from Guy Fieri to Andrew Zimmern loves what we're cooking, and we've got the highlight reel to prove it. Use this list to follow in their footsteps as you eat your way around town — or just find a new restaurant or two. Some of these spots have closed their doors, so use the list to remember those spots fondly. We've added some clips of the shows to the list, so read and watch St. Louis shine.
