Niche Food Group



Niche Food Group is based in St. Louis, Missouri and owned by executive chef Gerard Craft. As a Food & Wine Best New Chef, Food & Wine Innovator of the Year, 2015 James Beard Foundation Award-winning Best Chef: Midwest, and Inc. Magazine Star Entrepreneur, Chef Craft has been a pioneer for the Midwest dining scene. Always a believer in following intuition, Chef Craft settled on a boarded-up building in the Benton Park neighborhood of St. Louis, a city that he had never visited, to open his first restaurant, Niche, at the age of 25 in 2005. Niche Food Group now includes restaurants in St. Louis and one in Nashville, Tennessee: French bistro fare at Brasserie by Niche, approachable Italian at Pastaria, laid back burgers and brats at brassWELL inside Rockwell Beer Co., wood-fired, South American-inspired cuisine at Cinder House inside the Four Seasons Hotel. Pastaria Deli & Wine, a daytime lunch spot and shop offering selections of housemade, imported, and local provisions along with a vast wine selection. Located within the City Foundry STL Food Hall, The Kitchen Bar serves up craft cocktails, local beer, and great wine, as well as a variety of alcohol free beverages. Fall 2021 brought the opening of Bowood by Niche located within Bowood Farms Garden Center serving brunch, and soon dinner. Brass Bar, an intimate French wine bar serving wine & cocktails, includes Brasserie’s full menu as well. Our newest concept, Fordo’s Killer Pizza, opened in the City Foundry Food Hall in April 2022 and serves up Neapolitan style pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven.
