Owner Bernadette Faasen opened her second restaurant, Cobalt Smoke & Sea, in early 2019, in Creve Coeur, MO, an area better known for food chains than food destinations. But she envisioned something unparalleled: a destination where guests could find ambiance, extraordinary menus and attention to detail from people, and with people, who make it special.

Bernadette’s dedication to her craft was honed at Woodsmoke BBQ in Ellisville, MO, where specialties such as smoked meats and Seafood Boilers were perfected; where customers became friends; and where many local fundraisers were held. But in 2018, it was time to hang up the BBQ apron to offer a new kind of dining experience. Her desire to serve unique dishes with a welcome spirit springs from her ties to family, past and present. Bernadette is married and a mother to three boys, who are the motivation for her hard work and success. In fact, the boys may be seen at Cobalt, alongside Bernadette, learning the family business and making guests feel right at home.

Cobalt Smoke & Sea is a labor of love that will exceed every expectation that guests have about what a great meal should be.
