How often do you get to eat in a beer baron’s private dining room? and in a windmill to boot? I’ve lived in St. Louis for 19 years, but this is the first time I’ve been to Bevo Mill. Built by August A. Busch Sr. in 1916, the restaurant was opened to the public in 1917 and is a St. Louis landmark. Beautifully restored, the Bevo Mill is only open for private events and Sunday/Holiday brunch. Definitely a treasure and a darn good brunch too!
