For those of us born and bred in St. Louis, March 14th is all about hometown love. 314 Day (named after the St. Louis metro area code) is a 24-hour period when we all come together to uplift and showcase our city. Hometown glory is in full effect, no matter if you are downtown, midtown, the county or the burbs.
Schnucks was born and raised in St. Louis over 80 years ago, and we continue to show appreciation for this wonderful city.
We are sharing Eight Foodie Favorites to Celebrate 314 Day with items that are unique to our city. Let’s go!
Loved locally, the Gerber originates from St. Louis’ Ruma’s Deli and is named after the owners’ neighbor, Dick Gerber. Did you know: Mr. Gerber used to make his own sandwiches in the Ruma’s kitchen and this one (now known as “the Gerber”) was so well-loved, it earned a permanent spot on the menu.
True St. Louisans understand that Provel is a cheesy delight that will always be a local favorite. Whether it’s on pizza, in dip, sprinkled on salad, or eaten on a sandwich, Provel is a treasure indeed. Make sure to enjoy some on 314 Day!
This St. Louis curiosity gained fame in the city’s Chinese-American restaurants. How it gained its name is part of the sandwich’s disputed history, but its St. Louis origins are unquestionable.
Are you really from St. Louis if you don’t know what a St. Paul is? You can go to almost any Chinese establishment in the city to order one, and we even have a yummy recipe for it so that you can make one at home whenever you get the craving.
Raise your hand if you’ll be eating a St. Paul today.
