The Block 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 here to serve our community. We are excited to offer carry-out and delivery options to keep our neighborhood fed during this unique time. We offer family style meals, individual meals, butcher items to take home and cook, as well as The Block signature spices and bacon jam. Gift certificates are also available to send to your friends and family!
