Best Cornbread


Staff Pick

During the week the barbecue/taco eatery Spare No Rib inhabits the ground floor of 2200 Gravois Avenue. On Sundays, however, a pop-up brunch place called Egg is in residence. One of Egg's menu offerings is alone worth the trip: the "Sweet Topped Cornbread." The kitchen prepares the cornbread with just the right balance of sticky and crumbly, then smothers it in a rich, savory gravy of either shiitake mushrooms or fennel pork sausage. This combination amply fills the void felt in the gut of any hung-over person — and the mimosas and bloody marys don't hurt, either. 2200 Gravois Avenue, #101, St. Louis, 63104. 314-202-8244,
