Niche (7734 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-773-7755) needs no introduction. It's only the best restaurant in St. Louis. Starting July 1, chefs Gerard Craft and Adam Altnether will offer a 5-course menu of Italian antipasti and pasta dishes every Monday evening. This Summer event, dubbed Pastaria R&D, reflects the experience of a tasting trip through Italy.

Last Spring, Craft and Altnether explored the food of Naples, Rome, Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna, Marque, Lombardy, Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio. Each Pastaria R&D dinner will cost $45, and provide a selection of antipasti dishes, three pasta courses and dessert.

Starting next week, Pastaria R&D will be the only pre-fixe menu offered on Monday evenings. Expect artfully crafted Italian-inspired dishes with the careful, thoughtful execution Niche is known for.

"Our philosophy at Niche is to take a simple ingredient, such as pasta, and think outside the box to make it creative. With Pastaria R&D, we want to bring people in with something that's approachable, and then push them to the edge with really interesting dishes," The Niche Press Release stated.

You can make reservations online at Niche's official website.
