There are few guarantees in life, but St. Louis having its share of sweltering summer days can almost always be assured. Luckily, our town is stocked with shops serving up tasty, frozen goodness – the perfect answer for surviving the sizzle.
The feeling and atmosphere remain largely the same, but you’ll find some changes the next time you head to The Boathouse at Forest Park. The old standby for in-park dining, formerly operating under the management of Catering St. Louis, is now headed up by The Sugarfire Smoke House Group (which includes Cyrano’s and the Hi-Pointe Drive-In among its family). With the change in management comes new dishes with a foodie flair that you can enjoy in one of our town’s most lovely settings.
