Chicago may be the culinary darling of the Midwest, but chefs in other cities, including Gerard Craft who owns four restaurants in St. Louis, are making a big impact in the modern Midwestern food movement. "I'm trying my best to connect the Midwest -- I think Chicago stands on its own, nationally, but I think we're all a little bit disconnected and we're not all that far from each other," Craft said. "You know, for the last ten years everybody's been cooking local, in a more regional style. ... And I think everybody should kind of look around and see that circle around them."
