Colleen's vision for MTB was born of backyard fires, porch daydreaming, and walks with her son, Xavier. Building on her years of experience working in some of the most notable and beloved restaurants in St. Louis, Collen created this novel dining experience with a DIY ethos in mind. Colleen works to actively promote locally sourced foods, sustainable practices, and close relationships with farmers.
