AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): I consider this one of the hidden gems in St. Louis, with their absolutely delicious daily tasting menus and spot on wine pairings.
This upscale restaurant is tucked away on the upper portion of a renovated 19th-century bungalow. The à la carte menu guides you through four courses; for a full-blown dining experience, opt for the 10-course tasting menu. Both change often, but expect the likes of savory lamb loin served with eggplant purée or pork belly topped with a poached egg. Dessert is not to be missed; each sweet treat is a uniquely presented palate pleaser. The massive book that lists wine offerings is arranged by region, and describes each in great detail; even top wine connoisseurs will be impressed. A knowledgeable waitstaff will steer you toward the right pairings for your culinary choices.
