I realize this only has regional appeal, but I’d love to compile a list of favorite St. Louis restaurants. You know, local ones…not “oh! I love the Chili’s off Hwy 141!”, k? (Not knocking Chili’s. I’m a big fan of the Southwestern Cobb Salad. And many other things.)
So, here are a few to get us started…add yours in the comments and I’ll add them to the post when I have time! Feel free to participate even if you don’t live here but have visited and have favorites. And I know I have a couple of former St. Louisans who are readers, so girls, get thinking!
Restaurants that make a nice date (they don’t have to be uber-pricey; just nicer than your run-of-the-mill casual restaurant):
*1111 Mississippi (Lafayette Square)
*Sen Thai Bistro (downtown)
Italian (gets it’s own special category because of The Hill…what are your faves?)
*J Buck’s (multiple locations – the downtown one is nice!)
*Fitz’s (Delmar Loop)
*Blueberry Hill (Delmar Loop)
*The Burger Bar @ Lumiere Place (downtown)
*Fortel’s Pizza Den (multiple locations)
*The Daily Bread (Des Peres)
*The Village Bar (Des Peres) (disclaimer – I haven’t been here in years, and it’s kind of a dive, but they had great burgers.)
*Gourmet to Go (Ladue and Clayton)…I’m kinda breaking the rule here, because they are also in Denver per their website. But seriously, people…their stuff is awesome.
*Ted Drewes (everyone knows where this is!)
