Three local real estate agents offer a glimpse inside the eye-catching entryways of current listings, as well as tips on how to make your foyer more appealing to guests and perspective homebuyers alike.

Since reopening in Chesterfield several years ago, Balaban’s has garnered plenty of accolades, including multiple awards of the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence.

Chef John Perkins has been making waves in the St. Louis culinary scene for a while with his Entre Underground pop-up dinner events and his catering prowess. Then he took a space in the historic Gaslight Square and revamped it for private events and also used it as home base for a series of month-long specialty restaurant concepts he put together. Late last year, he decided to forgo the monthly experiments and use the space to house an ongoing restaurant based on one of them, a successful Southern-influenced event. He called the new eatery Juniper; and it's a cozy, comforting platform for Perkins' unique takes on down-home specialties.
