There are more than 800 Asian restaurants of varying size in the St. Louis area, ranging from small carryout shops to high-end sit down venues. They are all closely monitored and ruled by health inspectors from the St. Louis County Department of Health (DOH). The Asian Restaurant Task Force (ARTF) was established to build a communication bridge between the County government and Asian restaurants to enhance regional economic development. It serves to remove language barriers and help restaurant owners understand inspections and rules, and is comprised of volunteers and community leaders. Ethel Byndom (R1)
