Our Top 5 STL Food Influencers

Forget New York and LA. St. Louis is filled to the brim with diverse and delicious restaurants, and we think it’s the underrated foodie town everyone should be looking out for. And where there’s good food, there are food influencers! Here are our top 5 STL food accounts you should be following to stay on top of St. Louis’s flourishing restaurant scene. 

1. Whiskey and Soba

If food influencers were whiskey, Whiskey and Soba would be top shelf. Spencer Pernikoff takes beautiful, sophisticated photos of not only his food, but also behind-the-scenes kitchen shots. His recommendations are so sincere that you feel like you have to try the place now. Aside from his Instagram, his website includes thoughtfully written yet humorous restaurant reviews, recipes, and curated eating guides. Whiskey and Soba is an invaluable resource for those of you who carefully research your slightly-more-upscale restaurants before going.

2. We Eat Stuff

As self-described hipster foodies, Christine and Charlie (and their dog, Waffles) of We Eat Stuff wants you to know that they’re not food critics; they’re food evangelists. Ever so humble, We Eat Stuff insists they’re not bloggers, they just really like to eat and drink in St. Louis. With an Instagram post almost every day, we can see just how much they like it. We love their vibrant, so-close-you-can-almost-taste-it photos and message to eat local and support the hospitality industry.

3. STL Food Baby

STL Food Baby is everything a food Instagram should be with its bright, dynamic, and cohesive photos of casual food and short, witty captions. No one can accuse STL Food Baby of false advertising – all this food would certainly cause a food baby. But all the food looks so good you wouldn’t regret it.

4. STL Foodies

Ashley Q. of STL Foodies posts mouth-watering yet casual food, drink, and dessert photos with personal touches thrown in here and there. Don’t feel bad if you start drooling over this indulgent food porn.

5. Eat Drink St. Louis

Eat Drink St. Louis is your premier Instagram for, you guessed it, eating and drinking in St. Louis. This is a food account that features drinks pretty often, so it’s a great resource for deciding where to go for a meal that’d come with great drinks! And of course, the food looks pretty delicious too.

We hope you got a little hungrier reading this. Well, do you love food and think you’ve got what it takes to become a food influencer? You’ll have to carefully decide on your goals and messaging, and create a marketing strategy. It’s not so easy as just posting photos.
