This Friday we went to a restaurant in Florissant that a friend of mine suggested. She said it was, well-de-lish! and she was right.
She also told me it was tiny, an historical train depot, painted red. Again, she was right. If you didn't know what to look for you could easily pass it up, which would be a terrible shame because it is really a very good place. It has been open about 2 years. It's owners Jeff and Kris Mullersman are a delightful young couple who believe in quality ingredients fresh every day.
Actually, de.lish is best known for its cheesecakes that are made by Kris. De.lish was voted the Best Cheesecake in St Louis. Kris makes over 40 different kinds and any 5 of them are on offer every day.
The actual name of the restaurant is de.lish Cheesecake Bakery and Cafe. Their motto is "fresh from scratch, everyday".
They serve breakfast and lunch during the week and on weekends they stay open until 9PM. The space may be small but the menu is amazing. The offerings are mouthwatering and the hardest thing to do is to choose what to have they all sound so, well, de.lish.
I chose the McGreggor sandwich, which consisted of oven roasted chicken breast, caramelized onions, smoked gouda cheese,2 slices of applewood smoked bacon,toasted and topped with chipotle mayo, on a ciabatta bun. Oh brother, it was really de.lish, and enough for two.
Chuck ordered the BLB, which stands for bacon, lettuce bacon. It comes with 10 slices of bacon (one pound! ) romaine lettuce with chipotle mayo on French bread. Fortunately it is available in a half sandwich.
The sandwich I can't wait t try ( among many ) is the veggie which has Japanese cucumber, red onion,fresh tomatoes, roasted red pepper,spinach, feta, cream cheese and avocado hummus on a ciabatta!
Let me just say that you need to go to their website and look at their menus and that you definitely need to go there and try it all out. I may try to eat my way through the entire menu, it is that good.
If you take I-270 to Florissant Rd, go north until you get to St Catherine Street, and look for a tiny, red, historically protected train depot, you won't be disappointed.
