Is it time to flip the sign back to “open” in the window of our local restaurants? With restrictions being eased in many states and areas soon — including Missouri — it’s a question restaurant owners, chefs, employees and patrons are talking about, so we are, too. On this episode, we’ll talk to two local restaurateurs and food-entrepreneurs about the new guidelines they’ll have to consider, how your favorite restaurants might be coming to your neighborhood and what it could look like the next time you go out to eat, whenever that might be.

Plus, how restaurants are dabbling in their own technology, and why a couple of St. Louis-centric delivery companies say they do it right.

Raise your glasses and call your favorite bar because Missouri’s law is changing – at least temporarily – to let restaurants sell premixed cocktails to go.

We pair that sweet sip of relief with a bit of normalcy, sharing the last interview we recorded before life as we knew it changed because of the coronavirus.

Hear from the brothers behind Mission Taco, what they really think about working together, what they’d be cooking up if they weren’t slinging tacos and how their nomad upbringing influenced their love of St. Louis.

And hear why one beer maker is bringing their drinks to nursing homes and hospitals — encouraging folks to crack one open on the clock.

Covering food news means covering the impact of the coronavirus and social distancing measures on our local restaurant industry.

On this COVID-19 update, we’ll bring you the latest from the St. Louis restaurant scene. You’ll hear why some restaurateurs have opted to shut their doors. Plus, how you can still support them, and how those still serving are keeping employees and diners safe.

We’ll talk about how the federal stimulus bill will help the restaurant industry and its workers, and how even an industry down on its luck is helping front line healthcare workers right now.

Plus, hear part of Abby’s chat with the founder of one of our favorite publications talk about why she’s worried about the future of Sauce Magazine, and what she wants us to do about it.
