Squid ink potstickers

Crispy collaboration When Crispy Edge founder David Dresner and Café Napoli co-owner Kye Pietoso met one evening in downtown St. Louis, they discovered a mutual admiration for fine food…and pot stickers. Dresner had been developing a squid-ink version and decided that Café Napoli would be the ideal place to launch the calamari-inspired ’sticker, stuffed with squid, Pecorino, garlic, and chile, with an Italian bread crumb edge and garnished with housemade marinara. The appetizer, dubbed the Bed of Diablo, is available at Café Napoli for “quite a while, in all likelihood, given the overwhelming response,” says Pietoso. The restaurateurs say it’s the beginning of a long-term collaboration. 7754 Forsyth, 314-863-5731. Original Article / Photo Credit – George Mahe

Crispy Edge, St. Louis’ Potsticker-Themed Restaurant, Is Good, Not Gimmicky

At the Crispy Edge on a recent glorious autumn Sunday, the only thing sunnier than the weather was owner David Dresner’s disposition. “Happy potstickers!” he called to our party as we walked out the door, a goodbye that was no gimmick but rather an earnest expression of enthusiasm for all things dumpling. Coming from anyone other than Dresner, the sendoff might seem ridiculous. However, a passion for potstickers is woven into the very fabric of Dresner’s being. And it’s not a recent development. He’s been this way ever since he was a little kid, making dumplings alongside his grandfather in the Chicago suburbs. At first, it started out simply as a way to connect. After successfully battling cancer, his grandfather...
