The silly names and generic menu all point toward a restaurant that's trying to compete with the ever-encroaching empire of T.G.I. Friday's, Applebee's and other national chains. In today's economic climate, I can hardly fault such a strategy. As I mentioned when I reviewed Racanelli's Cucina ("Cucina Confidential," Aug. 27, 2009), such appeals to a broader public are becoming increasingly common in the gentrifying Delmar Loop. Yet I can't help but feel a little saddened and bothered by this trend: I write this the same week that Riddle's Penultimate Café & Wine Bar, a Delmar Loop institution and a seminal part of St. Louis restaurant history, has closed its doors.
