Best Outdoor Dining 2021 | 9 mile garden | Food and drink

Launched as St. Louis’ first food truck park in the heart of the pandemic, 9 mile garden (9375 Gravois Road; 314-390-2806) burst onto the region’s food scene with a daily selection of different food trucks, live music, and even movies projected on a 26-foot screen. The result sometimes feels like someone grabbed a dozen restaurants, flipped them over, and shook the contents over a neat city park. Every day patrons outfitted with lawn chairs and picnic baskets browse the selection of the best food trucks in town, with picky eaters having plenty to choose from, from sliders to tacos, ice cream, Korean and Mediterranean cuisine. The space has become an instant hit, and even as some normalcy returns to the dining scene, the seeds of good food and family entertainment have clearly become something special. —Danny Wicentowski
