This group of partners joins the five restaurants unveiled last month at CityPark: Balkan Treat Box, Beast Craft BBQ Co., Brasserie by Niche, Steve’s Hot Dogs and Pastaria Deli & Wine.
City highlighted several dishes on social media Monday: toasted ravioli from Anthoninio’s, bao sliders from DD Mau, pepperoni pizza from Dewey’s, brisket mac and cheese from FarmTruk, empanadas from Mayo Ketchup, crab rangoon from Nudo House and garlic knots from Pie Guy.
The chef Gerard Craft, whose Niche Food Group runs both Brasserie and Pastaria Deli & Wine, is overseeing CityPark’s food lineup as City’s “flavor officer.”
“From family-owned restaurants to food trucks, the City Flavor program showcases how restaurants of all kinds can thrive in St. Louis,” Craft said in a statement. “Fans will get a real sense of the high caliber of food from our diverse St. Louis restaurant community during the matchday experience.”
According to Monday’s announcement, even more food and beverage partners will be announced ahead of City’s MLS debut next year.
