What a whirlwind August has been! We are moved into the new house, however we have loads of unpacking and organizing to do. Work is in full swing and class begins tonight for me! The kitchen was our first room to unpack…of course! Still trying to figure out the proper ‘flow’ of the new space…it’s been rearranged twice…I’m sure we’ll rearrange again.
I’ve been lucky enough to have some great meals around town. Last night was Bobo…it was my second visit since being home and it didn’t disappoint. Ginger pork and egg noodles….delicious. I usually get the chicken….and although I liked the pork…the chicken is still my fav….headed over to Eclipse for a night cap on the roof. If you have yet to get down to Eclipse at the Moonrise Hotel in University City…I’d make a trip. The food is wonderful…the drinks are great and the rooftop views rival any bar in the city. They have a decent beer list…and the wine list it thoughtful, as well. But the calamari is delectable. Best I’ve had in StL in a very long time.
Speaking of Eclipse…I’ve been lucky enough to have been invited to an installation of a Full Moon Foodies Dinner. Hosted by Wes Johnson and Brendan Noonan…it’s a late-night meal focusing on creative cooking…each dinner has a theme and guests are invited to a late night dining experience at Eclipse. Wes has graciously given me the green light to publish my thoughts on their late night adventures. Stay tuned….September 4th will be an exciting night. It will be a vegetarian meal….looking forward to see what the guys can do with this season’s bounty!
