Kitchen Kulture to open brick and mortar, Kounter Kulture in Lindenwood Park


Everyone is movin’ on up on Watson Road. Kitchen Kulture’s Michael Miller and Christine Meyer announced today, March 3, that they will take over the space currently occupied by Pint Size Bakery when the bake shop relocates to a larger location at 3133 Watson Road, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The brick and mortar located at 3825 Watson Road will be called Kounter Kulture.


The Watson shuffle is expected to take place within a month or two. “We hope to get in in April, and it might be ambitious, but we hope to open in May,” Meyer said.


When Kounter Kulture opens, it will be a carryout only facility offering prepared Asian-inspired dishes, a concept Meyer said is a perfect fit with Kitchen Kulture’s local sourcing model. “Local sourcing lends itself to Asian food,” Meyer said. “The preservation techniques let us buy seasonally from local farmers year-round. We can use everything they have throughout the calendar year.”


Kitchen Kulture will still operate at the Tower Grove Farmers Market, offering prepared meals to go and breakfast items. The menu at Kounter Kulture will be separate and unique from the market menus with Miller overseeing production of food for both operations.


Kounter Kulture’s operating hours have not been set in stone, but Meyer said she anticipates being open Monday through Friday from mid-afternoon through dinner in order to feed hungry commuters. Hours may also vary in the farmers market off-season.
