Built on the ashes of the iconic Noah's Ark Restaurant at I-70 and 5th Street, Prasino (1520 South 5th Street, St. Charles; 636-277-0202) brings its eco-friendly ethos and Contemporary American cuisine to the Streets of St. Charles. Prasino, which is Greek for "green," is the third location of the Chicago-based boutique chain of restaurants built on the philosophy of offering sustainable, farm-to-table fare in an eco-chic setting. Its expansive menu features such diverse offerings as tacos, sushi, short ribs and even a few local classics like as St. Louis style-pork steak and gooey butter cake.

Wait a minute.
