Welcome to Bulrush

Bulrush STL is a contemporary dining and craft bar experience in the Grand Center Arts District just a short walk to the Fox Theater and Symphony. James Beard semi-finalist chef, Rob Connoley features contemporary foods rooted in Ozark cuisine in one of the most intimate dining settings in the nation. We prepare contemporary interpretations of historic (1820-1870) Ozark cuisine – Country pork, corn bread, greens, pie. Our goal is to offer you classic Ozark foods, presented in brand new ways, to take you back to your fondest food memories.

MAIN DINING ROOM: Open Thursday-Sunday, 5-10 pm. Reservations are strongly recommended for our Ozark tasting experience, although walk-in seating is as available. The Ozark tasting experience menu is not published prior to the meal as it changes daily. Please note any dietary restrictions at the time of booking. If you’re looking for a faster option check out our dinners at The Bar…

A BIT OF BOTH WORLDS: Can’t decide if you want a quick dinner or the full tasting experience? We now offer an in-between experience where you and a loved one can enjoy shareable food and drinks from both kitchens. Each couple will get three dishes plus dessert and sweets and shareable drinks from the bar for $125 (includes tax and hospitality). Reservations required.

I've had to sit on this little secret for far too long! Our @bulrush_stl
Building design build just won a major award from the American Institute of Architects! Hope it's the first of many for the beautiful work that was done.
πŸ’« We’re glowing πŸ’« @spacearchitects was recently honored to win 2 awards from @aiastlouis: Distinguished awards for @bulrush_stl and @lebaoeatery. πŸ† πŸ† ⁣
Both projects were a combination of our design and build talents. #Bulrush was a #designbuild #turnkey project, and, for #LeBao in @visitcolumbiamo our team provided the general contractor with custom fabricated pieces, including the banquette seating, steel bartops and drink rails, and the signature ceiling cladding.⁣
Thank you, @chefrobconnoley of #Bulrush and Chef @yoojina88 of #LeBao for trusting us with the design of their newest endeavors, all while being fun design partners to boot. πŸ€—
