The love of grilled ravioli no doubt runs in the blood of every St. Louis and now t-ravs will be honored with a restaurant in City foundry (3730 Chemin de la Fonderie) dedicated to nothing but the unofficial official food of The Lou.
STL Toasted is the latest addition to City Foundry’s vibrant line-up, and it will feature a line of “artisanal grilled dumplings with creative toppings,” according to a press release. Boasting flavors such as a lemon-blackberry gooey butter cake dessert topping and a savory bite of Buffalo chicken, the restaurant will debut in 2022.
“We chose to open our concept at City Foundry STL because we believe it represents everything we love about St. Louis,” founder Matthew Fuller said in a press release. “A collaborative space that celebrates diversity and small businesses is exactly the type of place we want to be. ”
STL Toasted came to fruition after Fuller had a life-changing car accident. Unable to work for a year, Fuller and his wife Brittany Abernathy remembered an idea they launched in 2014 about homemade grilled dumplings and started the restaurant. The two have started hosting pop-ups at places in St. Louis like Bella’s Frozen Yogurt and have another planned for January at The Drawing Board.
Director of Operations Susie Bonwich said in a press release that the City Foundry is “delighted to host a kitchen that pays homage to a well-known St. Louis dish that approaches it in a new and different way. “.
STL Toasted joins three other concepts in the Food Hall slated for 2022, New + Found’s Will Smith added in a press release. The most recent addition to the Food Hall was Intergalactic, a smashburger and fries restaurant. Visit cityfoundrystl.com for a full list of restaurants.
