Murder, mystery and mayhem are all part of what you'll find here. No one knows whether he or she will be the next "victim" or the one to solve the case. The haunting history of the 1860s mansion adds to the exciting atmosphere. Although this is a bed-and-breakfast establishment, the dinner theater is open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays at 7p. Reservations are recommended.
This gem boasts 85 years of success in the restaurant and catering business. In fact, its catering services are in constant demand by well-known corporations like Anheuser-Busch and Bank of America, as well as by individuals hosting private parties, weddings, graduations, holiday get-togethers and showers. If you are dining in, you will feel right at home in the family-style interior. Garavelli's serves exotic cuisine to suit even the most discerning palate. The warm and friendly staff add to this delightful experience.
While Gian Peppe's does not feature the largest dining room in the area, this restaurant more than makes up for its lack of size with irresistible flavors and an appealing sense of coziness. It is a popular setting for romantics in the evening and for the business class during lunch. The elegant surroundings call for an elegant dress. The Italian cuisine will leave you sighing with pleasure, but you will definitely feel the impact on your wallet. Entree choices consist of pasta specialties served with chicken, veal, beef and seafood prepared a variety of ways. Both the bar and wine cellar are well stocked!
While the strip mall location might not hold a lot of exterior appeal, the headdresses, tapestries and prints adorning the walls make this place's interior worth seeing. The owner, a Thailand native, has put a lot of effort into this restaurant and it clearly shows. Manee Thai is a great place to relax after a long day of shopping or to grab a quick bite to eat in the middle of your day.
Marciano's, a traditional Italian restaurant caters to a large assortment of regulars, travelers and even businesses. In fact, it is a favorite banquet and special-event location for many local businesses. The friendly staff offers impeccable service to one and all. The interior is on the elegant side, with lots of comforting, earthy hues. Whether you choose the toasted ravioli, the chicken tetrazzini or one of the other tasty dishes, you can count on your meal being prepared to your full satisfaction. The house salad with signature Italian dressing is thought by many to add a heavenly touch to every meal.
Kenrod's All-Star Sports Grill sports bar is well known for its programming, as it has eight satellites and 50 televisions, which broadcast sports into every nook and cranny. However, it should be equally renowned for its cooking. The food never fails to satisfy and appeal. In fact, it might just be worth a visit even if you are not a sports fan. The all-time menu favorite is the massive, juicy cheeseburger, which is made to order. Rest assured that all entree portions are more than the average person can eat and are well worth the price you might want to consider sharing unless you are extremely hungry.
Thanks to live music, this popular hangout is probably known more for fun than food, but that does not mean you will not be impressed with the culinary results. Do not expect an extensive menu, although you will be more than satisfied with one of the delicious burgers, the Philly cheese steak sandwich or one of a variety of salads. The beer selection is impressive, with domestic choices around. The simple menu at Hammerstone's is actually quite impressive. Overall, it is a good place to unwind with friends or enjoy a casual date, but you will probably want to go elsewhere for a serious business meeting or a true romantic dinner.
The decor leaves a little to be desired, but the food keeps guests returning again and again at Giuseppe's. The atmosphere and dress are usually casual, but don't be surprised if things get a little "dressy" on the weekends. Diners tend to be more in tune with the local nightlife on those nights. Try traditional Italian dishes such as chicken cacciatore, spaghetti with meatballs and veal parmigiana. All the entrees are served with a fresh salad and buttery garlic bread. Wines are available, but the choices are limited.
Gian Tony's caters to the romance seeker, the business executive and the loner looking for a great meal. It is also known as a gathering spot for sports fans after local games. The dress is casual, but jackets are preferred. All dishes have an Italian taste that is pleasing and not overwhelming. Guests can choose from chicken, seafood, veal, beef or pasta entrees. A family of four or five can eat well without thinning the wallet too much. The only down side seems to be the limited choice of beverages.
Govinda's has been the subject of the St. Louis Center of Vedic Studies (vegetarian studies) or, in novice terms, the local chapter of the Hare Krishna (known as the supreme personal God). The vegan cuisine is symbolic of the religious practices of the Hare Krishna. Conveniently located near St. Louis University, this restaurant draws a young and a health-conscious crowd. The sparse decor nicely sets off the Krishnaian gift shop in the dining area. Line servers are courteous and knowledgeable. A buffet filled with a wide choice of vegan dishes is open during lunch and dinner hours. Guests have a choice of raw veggies, special dressings, tofu and eggplant dishes. There is a small selection of desserts, which are not quite as tasty as the buffet and only two choices of beverages namely tea or punch.
