McArthur's Bakery Café announces its recent partnership with Chef Josh Charles. Charles will be overseeing the development of all four of the bakery's food and beverage programs including at its location at 210 N. Kirkwood Road in Kirkwood.
"We couldn't be more excited to have Chef Charles take on the task of defining our food and beverage program of the future," said Scott Rinaberger, owner of McArthur's Bakery Café.
Charles will begin implementing new menu items at each of the branches and will help in revamping the menu by the end of the year. The menu will include classic American celebration food with a contemporary twist. These new items will feature seasonal, fresh and locally-sourced ingredients.
"I like to think of these new menu items as healthy comfort food," said Charles. "I am thinking about using foods commonly found at barbecues, birthday parties, and during the holidays, taking those items, and giving them some extra flavor while cutting out any unnecessary ingredients."
Chef Charles is the executive chef at Element and former chef de cuisine at Elaia+Olio.
