This week was a busy one for local food and restaurant news. Among the week's events: We reported that the Kirkwood Pi's kitchen manager, Ali Aziz, was hospitalized after an incident at a drive-thru, while Araka's former executive chef, Mark Curren, was charged with burglarizing the restaurant. Brandt's Cafe is looking for a new owner, and Brasserie by Niche has landed a new executive chef. What else did we do this week?

Said farewell to a favorite feline friend.

Chef's Choice interviewed Freddie Holland of Match Foods, Inc.

A Girl Walked Into a Bar for a drink from Veronica Schuster of Harvest.

Examined the Supreme Court's Monsanto v. Geertson Seed Farms ruling.

Provided some alternatives to Rush Limbaugh's dumpster diving suggestion.

That's it for this week. Have a great weekend. Eat something good.
