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.
2. Whiskey at Juniper
We're not exactly sure what this is, but it looks like something we'd like to swill alongside chef John Perkins.
3. Grilled Cheese at Half & Half
Perhaps our favorite chilly day meal: grilled cheese.
4. Sage at Dirty Girl Farms
We've never wanted it more.
5. Banana Cream Pie at Scape
For anyone who's ever scoffed at a "deconstructed" dish, try this banana cream pie.
6. Pig feeding at Such and Such Farms
THIS PIG'S NAME IS PIGGY AZALEA.
7. Cake at La Patisserie Chouquette
We're pretty sure they come up with something more beautiful every week.
8. Beignets from Cleveland-Heath
In case you didn't already have strong Harvest Fest FOMO.
9. Sandwiches at Adriana's
There's a reason it's a classic.
10. Farm to Table at Five Bistro
Yes to all of it.
