Best Dining Destination St. Louis 2007 - Columbia

If your memories of dining in Columbia are hazy and tinted the hay-bale shade of cheap beer, then you already know that a tour of this college town's eateries must begin (or end) with visits to Booches Billiards Hall (110 South Ninth Street, Columbia; 573-874-9519) and Shakespeare's Pizza (225 South Ninth Street, Columbia; 573-449-2454 or But good eats in Columbia don't stop at tasty, cheap burgers and pizza so delicious that you'll swear off Provel and cracker crusts forever. From coffee and casual fare at Cherry Street Artisan to the market-inspired cuisine at Sycamore, from brunch at unpretentious Cucina Sorella (22 North Ninth Street, Columbia; 573-443-5280) to dinner from the Wine Cellar & Bistro's (505 Cherry Street, Columbia; 573-442-7281 or creative, exotic menu, Columbia offers something for every palate and budget. And if you get hungry for a late-night snack, don't worry: Shakespeare's is still open way past your bedtime.

Unfortunately, Cucina Sorella and Trattoria Strada Nova have closed.


Ah, I'm glad to see someone from the RFT took my advice and checked out Cucina Sorella.. my next recommendation- El Rancho, if you want to down some Mexican in a tiny place, jam-packed with sorority girls falling out of their outfits (go after 1 am for that)
