Each week, we nominate a new restaurant for you to review. Then, we'll randomly select three reviewers for a $10 gift card to a restaurant of their choice!
When it comes to restaurants, Webster Groves, Rock Hill and Warson Woods have it covered. We have some great local places that many would consider community gems. We have some restaurants that aren't exactly mom-and-pop, but are unique to the area, and we certainly—for better or for worse—have plenty of chains lining our main streets. But what we don't have is a consistent food critic to tell us what's good and what's not. That's where you come in. We could throw some money at a professional food critic, but that's not exactly what Patch is all about. We'd much rather know the opinion of the fine folks that eat there day-in and day-out. It's your community. You eat the food. You tell us if it passes the mark. Each week in Friday Food …
