1. Edgewild Bistro & Tap: 12316 Olive Blvd., Creve Coeur, 314.548.2222, edgewildbistro.com

EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery is bringing casual American cuisine (and beer) to sister restaurant EdgeWild Bistro & Tap. Unique twists to typical bar fare begin with snacks like togarashi-inspired popcorn tossed with kale chips and appetizers such as avocado-crab salad with house-made Indian fry bread. Sandwiches also sport creativity. Try the BLT&P, with pastrami adding oomph to a classic BLT, or the Kirin Chicken, a banh mi-style sandwich with a whisper of wasabi. Sammie traditionalists will smile at the Roast Dip, thick with beer-braised short rib. Among entrees, indulge in the meatloaf trio (bison, duck and a beef-sausage blend, each wrapped in cured meat), but add green with a side of crispy Brussels sprouts. Beer nerds will revel in the 22 rotating taps and more than 50 bottled brews that span the globe. Wine lovers can select EdgeWild labels, but on a hot day, we recommend the thirst-quenching Lambic Sangria.

2. Revel Kitchen Food Truck: 314.932.5566, Twitter: @eatrevel, Instagram: @eatrevel

Athlete Eats, now known as Revel Kitchen, is taking to the streets. The mobile eatery, led by chef-owner Simon Lusky, will serve Athlete Eats favorites as well as new items, including a cold soba noodle salad tossed in an Asian peanut sauce and garnished with a sous-vide egg. For a meaty fix try the Arepa Carnita Burger – a house-ground pork patty in a fresh arepa, smothered with mesquite-smoked, pineapple-yogurt sauce. Drink your PB&J with a smoothie of bananas, peanut butter, skim milk, chocolate protein powder, almonds and blueberries. Look for Revel Kitchen to start its engine at Food Truck Friday on May 8.

 

3. Antonio’s Bistro & Market: 5005 S. Kingshighway Blvd., St. Louis, 314.899.9885

South Kingshighway has a new place for authentic Bosnian fare. The cevapi offers generous portions of house-made beef sausages between two pieces of chewy, freshly baked Bosnian flatbread. For a meatless meal, grab the zeljanica, house-made bread stuffed with spinach and cheese and baked to a golden brown. For dessert, try the krempita, a light and fluffy vanilla treat that layers a thin slice of sponge cake, a hefty portion of custard and a puff pastry top.

4. J&C BBQ & Blues, 304 S. Florissant Road, Ferguson, 314.738.9222

Homestyle barbecue and live music headline at J&C, the second restaurant for husband-and-wife owners Jerome and Cathy Jenkins, located down the street from sister eatery Cathy’s Kitchen in Ferguson. Order the tender pork steak sandwich, pair it with fried okra and potato salad and just try to not lick your fingers. Look for a variety of house-made pies or try the bread pudding drizzled with sweet cream sauce, and then jump on stage and audition to be the weekend entertainment. This family-oriented joint welcomes any blues act to audition during the week for possible paying gigs on Friday and Saturday nights.
