I first met Liz Schuster when she was a line cook at a country club, still working her way through culinary school. I was leaving town for graduate school, and as a going away present, she gave me a copy of the film Eat Drink Man Woman. Schuster had very specific instructions: "You'll be living out of boxes for a while, so you'll want to order some really greasy Chinese takeout. Pop in this movie, open a nice bottle of wine, and eat on the floor -- use your moving boxes as a table."
Five years later, Schuster has turned her knack for mixing food, film and scene into Tenacious Eats (314-605-3684), her pop-up restaurant located in the Meyers Grove theater. Schuster took a break from her next food and film pairing (the word is that it's Wes Anderson's the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou), to chat with us about her thoughts on the St. Louis dining scene and her mad bow hunting skills.More »
