The second annual chili cook-off held in conjunction with Olivette on The Go featured creations from several area businesses and restaurants.

Hot. Medium. Mild.

Spicy. With Chicken, or without.

Some had seafood, some didn't.

Such were the palettes which were piqued in the second annual Creve Coeur-Olivette Chamber of Commerce Chili Cook-Off, held Saturday during Olivette On The Go Festivities.

Ten entries competed for the $1,000 grand prize. Saleeby & Associates, which won the inaugural competition in 2011, did not return to defend the title.

Judges included Creve Coeur Mayor Barry Glantz, Olivette Mayor Arthur Merdinian and Chamber President Jeanna Woods of Delmar Gardens

And the winner is? Bristol Seafood Grill, with a mild concoction billed as "Best of Both Worlds" with a gumbo flare. The creation also took home the contest's People's Choice award.

Granite City Food & Brewery took 2nd place with a "Tailgate Chili" recipe.

In third was a combined effort from Committed to Health Chiropractic and American Family Insurance with a "Creve Coeur Chicken Chili" recipe.
