A new casual Delmar Loop eatery specializes in loose meat sandwiches, a classic style of sandwich that was popularized in the Midwest nearly a century ago but never quite hit the St. Louis area. Lousies on the Loop debuted in University City in late October featuring its take on the loose meat sandwich – including vegan and breakfast options – alongside a menu of Southern-inspired sides, salads and desserts.

The concept comes from married duo Daniel and Kelle Boyer. The couple previously owned and operated their own pickle business, The French Pickler, in New Orleans before moving to St. Louis. For Daniel, who grew up in Bowling Green, Missouri, returning to the Midwest to open his first restaurant has brought his culinary career full circle.
