The next stop on our American Food Tour is St. Louis, home to puzzling pizza, cool custard, and the king of (evil) beers, Anheuser-Busch. And with your help, I'm sure we'll find some good things to eat and drink under the arch this week.
Reader Southsidered made several suggestions in the comments here, including where to find a brain sandwich. I'm certainly intrigued by the slightly-upscale take on barbecue at The Shaved Duck, and St. Louis is also home to one of Food & Wine's best new chefs of 2008, Gerard Craft at Niche. (Incidentally, is "Gerard Craft" not one of the best chef names of all time? I put it second only to Charlie Trotter.)
So take a look at the map and let us know in the comments below where you would go with just a few days in St. Louis. For now, we're off to the Soulard Farmer's Market. Cheers.
