My review of Pearl Café is now available online. Pearl Café, a Thai restaurant (with a few Vietnamese and Chinese dishes), is located at 8416 North Lindbergh Boulevard in Florissant. In this week's Back of the House slideshow, photographer Jennifer Silverberg introduces you to the Truong family (including brothers Tommy and Scott, pictured), takes you into the kitchen and shows off the small but inviting dining room.

More are after the jump.

It is customary in Thai culture to greet guests upon entering and exiting with hands together, a nod of the head and the word "soawadee." Owner and executive chef Scott Truong and his brother Tommy made sure to place a figure facing in, and another facing out, so whenever entering or exiting Pearl Café you are met with a lovely statue and an implied "soawadee." See a photo slideshow here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG

The Spicy Basil lunch special with beef is onions, basil leaves, green & red peppers with garlic Thai pepper sauce. As with most items on the menu, the diner has a choice of meat or vegetarian. This was one prepared with beef. See a photo slideshow here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG
