Sound Bites: Little Country Gentleman Offers Unique Dining Experience

“The excitement begins with a complimentary half glass of sparkling Lambrusco – the real stuff, fizzy and dry from Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region – and an amuse-bouche,” writes Sauce Magazine food reviewer Michael Renner.

Mike Randolph is the chef-owner Little Country Gentleman which opened in the Fall of 2012.

Renner’s review of Little Country Gentleman in Clayton, Missouri is complimentary ending with, “St. Louis needs chefs like Randolph to challenge us, to push us from good to great.”

Host Steve Potter talked with Randolph and Sauce Magazine senior writer Ligaya Figueras for our monthly Sound Bites segment.

Little Country Gentleman is a unique model in that it is a restaurant in a restaurant.  During breakfast and lunch the space is called Half & Half and at night, it switches to Little Country Gentleman.

The prix fixe (pronounced “pree-fee”) menu, in which there are set prices for various courses is unique, as are some styles of cooking food, including molecular gastronomy.
