Doors will Finally Close at Lake Forest Confections

Lake Forest Confections

Lake Forest Confections; All about the Love of Chocolate

CLAYTON, MO/February 24, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) It was sad enough when we had to say goodbye years ago to the iconic Lake Forest Pastry Shop that had delighted so many for so long, but now there’s more sad news for followers and lovers of the equally loved Lake Forest Confections.  The retail location at 7801 Clayton Road is closing its doors.

Lake Forest Confections had made quite a name for itself over the years for acclaims such as being listed in ‘The 50 Best Chocolatiers in America’ and for being featured twice on The Today Show.  They had created divine chocolates for some of the most renowned clientele including celebrities around the world.

Owned by the Abel family, the popular Confectionary offered creations that were handmade in small batches and fashioned with love and care.  Many of their products were made up as a one-time batch taking several days to create.

When the small group of retired master candy makers got together in 2004, they set out to recreate some of their world renowned creations by traveling the world and researching new methods in the art of candy making.

They dared to be unique with their own distinctive touch. Lake Forest Confections is one of the few places that could boast of developing each of their scrumptious creations in a top secret test kitchen being approved only after several revisions.

The good news is that they plan to continue selling their Lake Forest products at the factory where the product is formulated on the Hill.  Customers will still also be able to purchase items at selected key wholesale accounts such as Ladue Market.

Like they say, all good things must come to an end and in this instance “all good things chocolate must come to an end.”  For now, the shop at 7801 Clayton Road has everything in the store marked down to 50 percent off.

Nationally recognized again for their Toasted Ravioli – Charlie Gitto’s

Charlie Gitto's on the Hill, St. Louis, MO

National recognition is perfect timing for Charlie Gitto’s Valentine’s Day rush

ST. LOUIS, MO/January 29, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Charlie Gitto’s – The official travel site for the U.S.A., www.visittheusa.com, recently published an article titled “48-Hour Guide to St. Louis, Missouri”, whereby they recommend that travelers visit Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill for their famous Toasted Ravioli when visiting St. Louis, MO.

This is twice in the recent weeks that a national publication has recognized this popular restaurant that has become more of a local institution rather than a restaurant.  Last month we published an article titled “What America Eats” features Charlie Gitto’s Toasted Ravioli” announcing Charlie Gitto’s recognition on this popular series featuring the video.

To illustrate how much influence these two websites have that recommends Charlie Gitto’s, Community Table (What America Eats) is ranked 6,541 in the US and 27,200 in the world, while VisitTheUSA is ranked 118,750 in the US and 237,193 in the world.  Considering there are hundreds of millions of sites worldwide these are high ranking, high traffic websites that have taken notice of the Charlie Gitto’s brand.

Additionally, St. Louis Magazines’ George Mahe, recently published an article titled “Q&A: A Conversation with Chef Charlie Gitto Jr.

In addition to the recognition recognized in this article, over recent years that has been a significant amount of publicity surrounding the Charlie Gitto’s brand, making it the most popular fine dining restaurant chain in the St. Louis metro area with three beautiful locations.  They are: Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill, which is the original location and known as the location where toasted ravioli was accidentally created many years ago, Charlie Gitto’s from the Hill in Chesterfield and Charlie Gitto’s at Hollywood Casino in Maryland Heights.

While many restaurants struggle to compete in this highly competitive industry, Charlie Gitto Jr. has figured out the secret to success.  It is not a single item, it is the combination of great service, great atmosphere, perfect locations, an extensive wine list accompanied with a delicious awarding-winning menu offering everything from pastas, steaks and seafood cuisines that are unparalleled making Charlie Gitto’s the top-rated fine dining Italian restaurant in St. Louis.

This national recognition comes at a perfect time as Valentine’s Day approaches.  It is the most popular holiday for fine dining.  Any of the three Charlie Gitto’s locations are perfect for Valentine’s Day and always a popular destination for this special occasion.  Making your Valentine’s Day reservation early at Charlie Gitto’s is highly recommended.

The Best Irish Pubs in Saint Louis

Best Irish Pubs in Saint Louis

The Top 10 Spots for Pint with Friends – Best Irish Pubs in Saint Louis

ST LOUIS, MO/January 18, 2016 (STL Restaurant.News) Best Irish Pubs in Saint Louis – An Irish pub is a special place.  It’s part bar, part restaurant, part gathering place.  The really good ones have a mix of old world ambiance, great pub, comfort food, and of course, Guinness.  They’re the kind of places you drop into a couple of times a week for a meal, or a pint with friends—the kind of place where you can have a conversations without shouting.  There might be some traditional Irish music to get your foot tapping, but not the cacophony of blaring electronic noise that permeates so many establishments.  And there may be a television over the bar tuned to the local rugby match or “football” game, but not the banks of flat screens found at your local sports bar.

With the much publicized closing of the Dandy Inn in Fairview Heights, an Irish pub that was a local favorite, we wondered where else folks could go for a pint or shot of Jameson with friends.  We check our customer reviews and found that there are a lot of good Irish pubs in St. Louis.  What we found was that nearly every corner of the metro area has good Irish pub, but for the best head north.

Topping our list was Morrison’s Irish Pub at 200 State Street in Alton.  This family-owned bar and restaurant has been serving authentic Irish spirits and a unique menu of Irish-American Cuisine in a classic pub setting since opening in July 2015.  The brick and wood décor, historic building, and neighborhood surrounding their pub only add to the ambiance.  The 12 taps at Morrison’s offer a nice selection of local and imported beers, ales, and stouts.  You’ll find the locally produced Morrison’s Irish Red Ale from Templar Brewing in Alton, Old Bakery Beer Company’s Citrus Wheat Beer, and the Moody Cow milk stout from Peoria Brewery, among the domestics.  The import taps include Murphy’s Irish Stout, Harp Irish Lager, Magner’s Irish Cider, and of course, Guinness.  There’s also a good selection of bottled craft beers, authentic Irish whiskeys, and a creative cocktail menu.  All of the spirits at Morrison’s are mid-grade and high-end liquors; no rail drinks.

The menu at Morrison’s is a simple and rich collection of traditional Irish dishes like Irish stew, Bubble & Squeak, Boxty, Bangers and Mash, and Colcannon.  You will find burgers on the menu, both beef and lamb, but you won’t find wings or toasted ravioli.  Morrison’s uses authentic ingredients like Kerrygold Irish butter, imported bangers (sausages), Irish bacon, and Guinness crisps (chips). Morrison’s also patronizes local Alton businesses like LuciAnna’s Pastries (which makes their authentic soda bread) and Duke’s Bakery.

Weekends at Morrison’s brings authentic Irish music, including Thursday night’s Sea Shanties sing-along.  The authentic food and drink combine with the classic public house feel at Morrison’s, making it easy to see why this relatively new establishment topped our list of the best Irish pubs in the St. Louis area.  If you can’t get to Alton, but still crave that authentic Irish pub experience, then check out the rest of our Top 10 list to find the best pubs near you:
