The Gut Check One Hundred is our accounting of the 100 dishes in St. Louis that you must eat right now. These are the best dishes at the newest restaurants and the newest dishes at the best restaurants. These are the 100 dishes that define St. Louis dining in 2013.

Hendricks BBQ (1200 South Main Street, St. Charles; 636-724-8600) is no mere barbecue shack. It’s a massive enterprise along St. Charles’ historic Main Street, a live-music venue and moonshine distillery as well as a restaurant. Yet in spite of Hendricks’ sprawling size and varied attentions, pitmaster Matt Vanderbeck lavishes the restaurant’s barbecue with the care and craft that have marked the St. Louis barbecue renaissance of recent years.
