Mortuary turned restaurant

Head to the stunning Meriwether’s Restaurant housed inside the (free) Missouri History Museum; the Food Network named it one of the “best museum restaurants.” Try a local Fitz’s orange soda or Plainsman’s chili made with Missouri buffalo.

Champion of local farmers

Buy the region’s specialties, snoots, at this takeout window frequented by a steady stream of locals. Like oversize pork rinds, the texture of a rice cake, the snoots are sluiced with a tomatoey sauce that had the right amount of sweetness and heat cutting through its deeply porky hit.
