There are two kinds of St. Louisans. Those who wake up every morning craving Josh Galliano’s fried chicken, and those who obviously haven’t tried it yet. Whichever camp you fall into, you’ll be glad to know that this Sunday, The Libertine is hosting a special dinner featuring none other than Galliano’s coveted fried chicken.

Sunday, July 21st, The Libertine will begin its series of Sunday Supper events with a three-course fried chicken dinner for $35 per person. The fried chicken Galliano made famous at Monarch Restaurant and, since the restaurant’s closing, has teased us with at various pop-up events will be served for one night only (sigh), with a side of Yellow Tree Farm’s stewed cabbage and roasted zucchini, a side salad and housemade peach cobbler.

Future Sunday Supper themes include “Never Let a Dago By” on July 28—featuring an antipasto course, chitrarra with red gravy braciole and housemade cannoli—and “Good Morning Vietnam” on Aug. 4—including beef pho, caramelized Berkshire pork collar, and Vietnamese coffee panna cotta.

If you have standing Sunday plans, no need to worry. The restaurant is holding another not-to-be-missed dinner event on Mon., July 29, to kick off Craft Beer Week. Their Southern Illinois Beer Dinner will feature produce from southern Illinois farms, as well as beers from Excel Brewing and Perennial Artisan Ales. Tickets are $60 per person and include a five-course dinner with beer pairings.

Reservations are strongly recommended for all events and can be made by calling 314.862.2999 or online at
