This week on the Sauce podcast: The Benevolent King's rebrand, Motor Town Pizza and Black-owned restaurants

This week on the Sauce podcast, Meera and Michelle discuss the menu revamp at The Benevolent King in Maplewood, which now has more of a focus on seafood.

Michelle also talks about a recent visit to the newly opened Motor Town Pizza in Richmond Heights, which is the concept from co-owners Simon and Angelica Lusky, who also run Revel Kitchen, where Motor Town got its start as a ghost kitchen.

Also in the conversation is a list of Black-owned restaurants to check out from Simone Faure, chef and co-owner of La Patisserie Chouquette in St. Louis, which was just named a semifinalist in the Outstanding Bakery category by the James Beard Foundation.

Rounding out the conversation is a chat on happy hours with a list of good ones to get to right now.
