Dutchtown’s The Feasting Fox has shut doors for good

Historic German restaurant The Feasting Fox announced Tuesday, Sept. 1, via Facebook that it has permanently closed. “In 1993, we took a leap of faith when we decided to bring this historic building back to life and preserve a precious piece of St. Louis,” owners Marty and Sue Luepker wrote.


“COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of life and taught us the important lesson of slowing down to enjoy each moment,” it continued. “With the support of family and friends, we’ve decided it’s time to close the Feasting Fox and begin the next chapter of our lives.” 


The post went on to say that The Feasting Fox’s interior, including “restaurant items, antique decor, furniture and local St. Louis pieces that we’ve collected over 25-plus years” would be put up for sale via three online auctions. More information on those can be found here
