As reported by Gut Check, Larder & Cupboard (7310 Manchester Road; 314-300-8995) opened its doors at the corner of Manchester and Marshall avenues in early November. The specialty food shop in downtown Maplewood comes from Kakao's Brian Pelletier and co-owner Cindy Higgerson, and it stocks small-batch purveyors from locally and abroad. Hand-picked items include the likes of Salume Beddu, Marcoot Jersey Creamery, Baetje Farms and more.
