Eating is more than just putting food into our pie holes and silencing our rumbling stomachs. It's about seeing old friends, making new ones and building a community while through the ancient art of sharing food and drink with others.

When lunch time rolls around, grab a burger that St. Louis Magazine Editor in chief, Jarrett Medlin craves at Street Eats (you can get ice cream at Sweet Addictions, right next door). Grab a massive burrito at Lomas Del Sol. Journey out to Lake Glenn Shoals, eat at The Marina, and feed the fish while enjoying the sun glittering off the water. Or, if you're feeling a bit nostalgic, check out Park-N-Eat. They've been around since May 1969. Want to find the best egg rolls in town? Visit The Cozy Cafe and find them.

It's nighttime and you're ready for a pint, conversation and jolly good fun. If you're feeling local, head over to the Courthouse Pub for beer, pool, and sports on the cathode ray. If you're more of a craft beer kind of person, then visit the Opera House for the beer that's bringing people from all over to our city on the hill.
