Bissinger’s celebrates 95 years in CWE with expanded operation

Nicki's Central West End Guide Food and Drink Services Shop News Uncategorized  The Caramel Room Maryland Plaza Harvest Handcrafted by Bissinger's chef Nick Miller Bissinger's 23 City Blocks Catering Company

As it celebrates its 95th year in the Central West End, Bissinger’s, 32 Maryland Plaza, has expanded its operation to include breakfast, lunch and dinner. “Handcrafted by Bissinger’s” is now open 7 days a week, starting at 7 a.m. on weekdays, 8:30 a.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. on Sundays.

On a recent visit, manager Matt McCarthy said the company saw an opportunity to showcase its catering operation, 23 City Blocks, by broadening the menu at the CWE location. Nick Miller, formerly of Harvest, is the chef. The website states that 23 City Blocks is the owner and operator of Handcrafted by Bissinger’s.

Years ago I wrote a post about a visit to Bissinger’s candy-making facility when it was located in The Grove. Here is a link to that post which includes the history of the founding family whom Napoleon Bonaparte named “Candy Maker of the Empire.” The original CWE shop was at 4742 McPherson Avenue, where Candle Fusion Studio is now located. At that time, the candies were hand-dipped in the back of the shop and the smell of chocolate as you walked in the door was intoxicating.

In 2014, Bissinger’s extensively renovated an industrial building that once housed another St. Louis candy company, Switzer’s, at 1600 N. Broadway. The large building now contains corporate offices, a beautiful event space—The Caramel Room—the candy-making operation (which is available for tours), and 23 City Blocks Catering Company.

McCarthy said that Cocktails and Mocktails (see menu above) are “prepared ‘bottom up’ with the same love and care as the handcrafted chocolates.” Of course, the world-renowned chocolates are available any time of day at Handcrafted by Bissinger’s.

Here is a YouTube video I found on Bissinger’s website featuring its chocolate-making operation at 1600 Broadway. CWEnder Dr. Laura Coletti Mann makes an appearance in the section that was filmed in the CWE store.

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Mary Ann’s Tearoom

You’ll wonder if you’re the one who’s tripped and fallen down the rabbit hole when you enter Mary Ann’s Tearoom on any Tuesday afternoon this summer, for at 3 p.m. sharp the gorgeous light-filled tearoom inside Enchanting Embellishments is transformed into a fantastical Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Thirty guests wearing an assortment of their “maddest” hats and, in a few cases, Alice-in-Wonderland makeup, were already seated when I stopped in to photograph the tea party on a recent Tuesday afternoon. There is a prize for the most imaginative hat—so between the over-the-top table setting, which takes 2 hours to assemble, and the attire of the guests, it was hard to distinguish one from the other.

No one was more enthusiastic than Enchanting Embellishment’s staffer Michael Shreves, above and below, who plays the Mad Hatter, a role he clearly relishes. He entertained the guests with Alice-in-Wonderland games and trivia throughout the afternoon.

Since the Tuesday Tea with the Mad Hatter events began in June, they have become so popular that it’s necessary to make reservations at least two weeks in advance.  Enchanting Embellishments’ manager Ken Fowler said that the teas, which were scheduled for summer only, may continue into the fall.

Photo right: The type of tea served on Tuesdays is known as a “cream tea,” which is described as a sweet tea. Service includes an assortment of teas and homemade scones, macarons, and other pastries, $19.95. There is a 3-tiered pastry tray laden with sweets.

Some people who attended the annual 4th of July Family Parade Tuesday, sponsored by the Central West End Association, mentioned that it is one of their favorite neighborhood events. I couldn’t agree more. And for as many years as I have been taking photos of the parade, it never gets old.

Hats off to CWEA board member Kate Walter, left, and director Jess Batchelor, right, for organizing such a stellar parade. CWEnder Bridget Collins was also one of the organizers. She is pictured further along in this post.

The parade ended at the Maryland Plaza fountain where there was ice cream, compliments of jeni’s, and a magic show & balloon art by Circus Kaput performers. In addition, firemen from Engine House 28, who were on call for the duration of the parade, stayed around so children could take a turn behind the wheel of the massive firetruck.
