In a slideshow posted this week, Food & Wine magazine named Taste (4584 Laclede Avenue; 314-361-1200) one of the 50 best bars in America. A brief blurb does manage to mention "local hero" mixologist Ted Kilgore and of the dishes from chef Adam Altnether.

"Very cool," Kilgore tells Gut Check of the recognition.

"Adam [Altnether] texted me about it," Kilgore says. His initial reaction, he confesses, was confusion: "What is that?"

(Kilgore then recalled Food & Wine asking Taste for photographs a couple of months ago.)

Just today Gut Check revisited Kilgore's mixology magic, as he prepared a "Dear Elisabetta" for our Holiday Cocktail Countdown.
