#63: Broadway Oyster Bar

  • Known to be one of the most popular (if not THE most popular) Cajun-Creole restaurants in St. Louis. One notable food that is not known to be sold at many places is the fried alligator.
  • It is housed in one of the oldest buildings still standing in St. Louis, built in 1843.
  • Live music is featured here every night. 
  • B.O.B.'s mission is to celebrate the New Orleans style and traditions. 
  • Opened in 1979.
  • Restaurant includes an open-air patio
  • According to Sauce magazine (July 2014), the restaurant will be expanded with more seating capacity and new kitchens, as well as an oyster-shucking station that guests can view

A lot was done to the cake that made it represent BOB. Its artist, Mary Harmon: "I spent the day with the owners of the Oyster Bar. We took many pictures and then they decided what has special meaning to them. The swirls actually are about an artist in New Orleans who paints in swirls and he is a friend of theirs. The lights at the top can be found in the Oyster Bar requested by John the owner. Of course the music figures and all the signs can be found inside. The cracked 250 stands for all the mirror glass that can be found on the walls. And last but not least their logo. The Oyster Bar is a fabulous place to dine and listen to great music. Tell them Gina sent you...........ha I also painted the base of bricks. This cake took over 3 weeks to paint and it was a JOY!!!!!!".

Thought I'd show a little downward shot of the nice decor in and outside of the cake
