Abby Eats St. Louis

He made that dish Famous (Barr)

June 25, 2019

Get into any discussion with a native St. Louisan about restaurants of yesteryear, and someone—inevitably—will bring up a department store. Yeah, sounds weird, but if you grew up in St. Louis it makes so much sense.

This week's episode is all about Famous-Barr and its equally as famous French Onion Soup.

We explore why St. Louisans still crave and rave about this bubbly bowl of brothy goodness. We also talk to a local chef who brought it back from culinary extinction. (Yes, you can indeed still get a bowl of this famous soup!)
