St. Louis Restaurants

Here’s a list of restaurants I’ve been enjoying in St. Louis this summer:


Pi is always awesome, thick crust, not too heavy, good ingredients, several locations. The CWE location even has good breakfast pizza (think quiche in their cornmeal crust- yum!)

The Good Pie on Olive is VERY good, stone oven pizza. They have buffalo mozzarella too.

And finally PW Pizza is also excellent, and that’s a big compliment from a former east coaster like myself.

Not Pizza

MILAGRO, MILAGRO, MILAGRO- best Mexican food, hands down. No arguments allowed. They also have wonderful Sunday brunch- maybe the best breakfast potatoes in St. Louis. (which is sad to say for all the breakfast restaurants)

Sushi- Miso on Meramec for more upscale, Cafe Mochi for more everyday good stuff. Try the pink cocktail.

Benton Park Cafe has excellent Ultimate Eggs Benedict and good breakfast potatoes. I can’t quite get myself past that part of the menu, although I’m guessing there are other good things on it.

BBQ- this is a category with lots of good options in this town. I am partial to Bogart’s- mostly because I can walk there. I am also looking forward to the opening of Capitalist Pig. Recently had a lovely first meal at The Shaved Duck- smoky meatloaf and BBQ cheese fries!

Spanish Tapas- Modesto is very good. You must order the Cauliflower- even if you don’t normally like that vegetable.

Italian- Stellina makes me so happy! Their menu changes with the season and what’s fresh, so it’s always a new experience. Their pastas are really exceptional. Last time I had Agnolotti with carrot and marscapone filling, topped with pea shoots and a light herb butter. It was like spring on a plate!

Dressel’s- Lamb burger is SOOO yummy. The sweet chutney and goat cheese with the rich lamb is really first class. They have other good things on their menu too, but I rarely can get myself to order them.

The Cupcakery- has amazing chocolate cake.

Any others to add? I’m sure I’m leaving some good places out, but a girl can only eat so much.
