A Restaurant + Local Butcher

The Block Restaurant and Butcher Shop is a neighborhood establishment with a modest method: create and showcase a farm-fresh, seasonal menu that sources the very best local ingredients. By sourcing local ingredients we can celebrate the abundant resources of Greater St. Louis area, while supporting the local community and economy.
 
The Block also pays homage to traditional butchery work by performing primary and secondary butchery of locally procured livestock in house. We offer a full-service meat counter complemented by artisanal accoutrements that allows you to take fresh cuts home to craft locally-inspired meals on your own.
 
The Block is an inviting, community gathering space that delivers an enchanting dining experience, accompanied by locally acquired and handcrafted cocktails.
