This year’s 8 best new restaurants, according to Sauce Magazine
Sauce Magazine’s eighth annual “Best New Restaurants” issue delivers another set of new hot spots that opened in 2022. The list includes details about each restaurant’s vibes, drinks, food and, at times, the restaurateurs’ inspiration.
“We spend several months trying places,” said Executive Editor Meera Nagarajan. “Usually we like to go as a group so we can really have a spirited debate about what we think — and what we think our readers will like.”
This year’s highlights include:
- Menya Rui in St. Louis’ Northampton neighborhood
- Jalea in St. Charles
- Bistro La Floraison in Clayton
- Bar Moro in Clayton
- Bowood By Niche in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood
- Taqueria Morita in University City
- Fordo’s Killer Pizza in St. Louis’ City Foundry food hall
- Tiger Soup Dumplings in Fenton
Nagarajan joined Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air to share her thoughts on the best dishes at each spot. She also talked about several winter pop-up bars with boozy holiday vibes.
