Now open in Tower Grove South

Local Harvest Grocery will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at 3148 Morganford (near the Tin Can Tavern). Local Harvest is notable for its support of locally produced grocries. That's not too surprising: Owner Patrick Horine also runs the Tower Grove Farmers' Market.

I'm super excited to have this place in my neighborhood. Friends and colleagues have already been raving about it. So drop by and see what all the fuss is about. You might even bump into yours truly. Call 314-865-5260 or email for more information.

If you read my colleague Malcolm Gay's recent Keep It Down feature story, you may remember that after enjoying several adventurous courses, we were defeated by a durian sorbet. Want to know more about the unfathomably stinky fruit? The Grinder, the food-media blog at, has a fun little entry on the topic.
