Artist Series

We believe art, like good food, is best when it’s shared. That’s why we’re proud to feature the work of local artists in our restaurant and on our to-go bags. Be sure to visit this page again, as we’ll be adding new artists often.

Adam Koon


Illustrator and designer Adam Koon finds inspiration in organic and whimsical designs. Oh yes. And 1950s-era astronauts. A St. Louis transplant, Adam graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. When he finally puts down his pen (and his pasta fork, of course), Adam spends his time exploring the nooks and crannies of St. Louis on his bike.

David Rygiol


Being outdoors comes naturally to David Rygiol. There, under the sky, he finds inspiration for making the world a more beautiful place for everyone – through design, typography and illustration. He earned his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from San Jose State University. David lives in St. Louis with his wife and three children.
