Hey, folks! I’m – I’m currently living in the St. Louis area and I take my blog along as I check out local spots, settle into my new home, sip craft beer, and plant lots of green things! One of my 2016 Intentions is to Embrace Missouri (#EmbraceMO). My goal is to try {at least} 6 new coffee shops, 6 new breweries, and 6 new restaurants. Today I want to share the 6 {new to me} restaurants I have tried thus far in 2016- I have loved them all and if you haven’t tried them, they can serve as a resource of restaurants to try in St. Louis.
