Gerard Craft's Niche (7734 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton; 314-773-7755) is the best restaurant in St. Louis. No qualifiers, no equivocations. My review of Niche is now available online.

And with that my tenure as Riverfront Times' restaurant critic and the lead writer for Gut Check has come to an end.

If you've enjoyed reading my work here, even if you haven't always (or ever) agreed with me, beginning next week, I'll be writing about food and restaurants for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Please drop by and say hello -- though only after you've read all the latest posts on Gut Check, of course.

If you haven't enjoyed my writing, rest assured that a new administration will be in place here at Gut Check International Headquarters very soon. And don't forget: You can still apply for my job.

Thanks for reading all these years. Please continue to support local restaurants and local media.
