ST. LOUIS – Two St. Louis restaurants, one old and one new, are receiving national attention.
Tempus was placed at number 6 on the list of top 10 new restaurants in the United States by USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice awards.
Tempus opened in fall 2020 amid the pandemic. They have been doing take-out only from their kitchen window. Some of the items on the menu at Tempus are lamb belly steam bunns, hokkaido scallops, cassoulet, beef rib, celery root shawarma and more.
The restaurant opened on The Hill in 1918 and Alex Donley is the fourth-generation owner. Donley said the key to their hot salami sandwich is once it’s cooked it never cools down. It’s sliced right in front of the customer.
