STLCheesegirl 2014 Top Posts

Since my "Top Posts" was a big hit last year, I thought I should do a "best of 2014" as well. Most of the restaurants in this list are quite popular, but there are a few surprises as well!

Libertine Fried Chicken - http://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/01/the-libertine-fried-chicken.html
Top of the list is one of the best restaurants in St. Louis (imho) and I got to enjoy the Sunday night Fried Chicken dinner a couple of times. I also got to try the regular menu as well as the lunch menu and I never get tired eating there. Definitely someplace you must visit.

Bishop's Posthttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/08/bishops-post.html
This is one of those surprises because this post was very short and did not include any pictures. I actually was just there for a happy hour, not even for a full coursed dinner. This restaurant is in the old Oceano Bistro Chesterfield so perhaps that got it some attention.

Sweetology http://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/11/sweetology.html
This was a wonderful "treat" since I got invited to review the new "make your own cake or cupcake" adventure as a food blogger. The owners are great with social media and I really do hope everyone checks it out. I also wanted to support my friends and family, especially when they're women-owned businesses!

Peacemaker Lobster & Crab http://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/08/peacemaker-lobster-crab.html
This is probably my most favorite new restaurant and one of my favorites in St. Louis. Fresh seafood cannot be beat. You can't go wrong with Kevin Nashan. I cannot wait to go back!

Katie's Pizza and Pasta Brunchhttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/05/katies-pizza-and-pasta-and-brunch.html
I was a backer of Katie's Pizza and Pasta new location in Rock Hill and I always love going there. I got to enjoy their brunch a few times, especially since my Sunday School of Wine class was not that far away. I have even gotten my boss to take me to Katie's for lunch. This is always a top recommendation for me.

STLwinegirl 5th Business Birthday Party - http://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/03/stlwinegirl-fifth-biz-birthday-party-at.html
The STLwinegirl appears twice in my list, which  makes sense since I attend a couple of her events a month and she is the inspiration for me starting this blog. Can you believe it's been 5 years? This event was held at The Libertine, which is why this was a huge and popular event. It is also nice that STLwinegirl is big in social media.

Inaugural Wine Girl Wednesday at Scapehttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/08/inaugural-winegirl-wednesday-at-scape.html
STLwinegirl started a new type of event this past summer called "Wine Girl Wednesdays". The first one was held at Scape. Each month, on the first Wednesday of the month, the event is held at a new restaurant and there are wine and food pairings "special" for the night.

PW Pizza Six Row Beer Dinnerhttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/08/pw-pizza-six-row-beer-dinner.html
Patience and I made it to all but one PW Pizza Beer Dinner this year. Who doesn't love a beer and pizza pairing? Each month, a different craft brewery is featured. Feel free to go back and review all the different breweries we got to taste!

Annie Gunn'shttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/05/annie-gunns.html
This had been on my "must try" list for a very long time and luckily I needed a top place to take a friend out to dinner. The wine selection and entrees are pretty amazing. It might not be one of those new, hip places, but I feel like it's a St. Louis staple for a restaurant with class.

PW Pizza Excel Beer Dinnerhttp://www.stlcheesegirl.com/2014/07/pw-pizza-excel-dinner.html
Again, when you have a monthly event (and St. Louis is a beer loving town), I can see how these would be popular posts. I certainly hope everyone will come out and try their pizza!
