You simply can’t come to St. Louis without eating at Niche, a New American restaurant overseen by five-time James Beard Award nominee Gerard Craft. Choose between a tasting or four-course menu comprised of mix-and-match dishes. Standouts include Dia’s cheese bread, puffs of Brazilian bread that pull apart like fresh mozzarella; eggshells filled with lemon custard, shiitake mushrooms and bonito caviar; and hen of the woods mushrooms served over smoked peaches and corn purée seasoned with chorizo.
At Niche we work to create a menu of humble ingredients and serve them in a way that shows their real potential.
To take the common and remind you how beautiful it can be. We look to the past to see what was here long before us and we look to the future to see what might be possible. As chefs we are never satisfied and always evolving. We are more in awe of a carrot or potato, grown by one of our trusted farmers, than we are by a white truffle flown in from Italy. To us, this is what defines cooking in Missouri.
