Crestwood, revisited

I used to only hit up Crestwood, a small Southwest suburb of St. Louis, for Monkey Joe’s (if you don’t know what that is, then I will spare you the description). But lately, I’ve been visiting the area for two new favorite haunts. If you are local, read on…


The first, Yolklore. The breakfast/lunch spot that, as the name would lead you to conclude, believes an egg atop makes any meal better. I couldn’t agree more. Despite being in a strip mall, the space is cute and trendy, with a lot of attention to detail. Their custom designed insignia adorns everything from the bathroom wallpaper, to the menus, to the paraphernalia for sale by the counter.  It’s open from 6 am -2 pm seven days a week, so plan accordingly and go for breakfast or lunch. I got the Nest Egg, which is a buttery biscuit hollowed out and filled with eggs, bacon, pickled red onions and preserved lemon. It was so yummy. There is also a great kids menu, which for most of you reading this blog, is a plus!


While you’re in the area, scoot down Watson and visit MoModerne. They specialize in MCM furniture and decor. Last time I was there I saw some cool rattan chairs, a beautiful Saarinen tulip table, a lucite Hollywood Regency style bench and brass Sputnick chandelier that I loved…now if only I had room in my house.
