Our Instagram feed has become delightfully seasonal, especially over the past week. The novelty of pumpkin-spice everything has made way for belly-warming soups and hearty meals from St. Louis' finest. Just try not to drool, and let us know who we should be following in the comments.
1. Mussels at Scape
You can practically feel the steam coming off them.

We're not exactly sure what this is, but it looks like something we'd like to swill alongside chef John Perkins.
