Liluma Side Door-CLOSED - Closed

236 N. Euclid Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108 | St. Louis - Central West End | 314-361-7771

Location Description:

The back of room of Jim Fiala’s popular Central West End bistro is now a restaurant within a restaurant serving modestly priced (dishes are either $4, $7 or $10), cleverly conceived American fare. The “Fried Bologna,” for example, is housemade mortadella that’s fried and then drizzled with a balsamic sauce. “Surf and Turf” brings two scallops atop spaghetti squash. Though the décor (and the service) sometimes feel like an afterthought, the food alone is worth a trip through Liluma proper.
