The gloomy winter days seem to be behind us in St. Louis (fingers crossed), which means Easter is right around the corner.
Luckily, our city’s hardworking chefs and bakers have perfected the process for pre-ordering food to take home to your family and friends. If Easter hams, deviled eggs and sweet little cakes shaped like lambs sound like worthy additions to your feast, pre-order now to pick up before Sunday, April 9.
BEAST in The Grove has announced it held its last day of service on March 26. However, its store in Belleville, Illinois, remains open, as does the BEAST food stall in CITYPARK. According to its website, BEAST has Duroc bone-in hams available for pre-order and pickup in The Grove on April 9 and will still host Easter brunch that day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The owners expect to park the BEAST food truck at The Grove location periodically – stay tuned.
