8/28/2012 A dining suggestion with 19 days to go


As the new-book smell wafts from the just-delivered copies of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans party-goers may wonder where they should eat on Sunday, Sept. 16, the day of my release/signing party at the Feasting Fox, 4200 S. Grand Blvd. Actually, the Feasting Fox has a succulent Sunday brunch until 2 p.m., when the party starts at the Gretchen Inn, the restaurant’s banquet facility. The restaurant then serves its regular meal until 8 p.m., ensuring those exiting the party when it ends at 5 p.m. don’t have far to go have a good place to eat. In the spirit of the day, try their sauerbraten.
