Mad Tomato

8000 Carondelet Clayton, MO 63105 | Clayton | 314-932-5733

Location Description:

The latest restaurant from Vito Racanelli Jr. (Onesto Pizza & Trattoria, the late Big V's Burger Joint) offers Italian cuisine best described as upscale rustic. Entrées are served in cast-iron skillets: The grilled steak and the roasted red snapper are both winners. Pastas are substantial, and the pork-rib ragu that coats a serving of maccheroni larghi seems to distill an entire pig into one rich sauce. The standout offering might be the "Hunter's Egg," one of the antipasti: An egg poached in tomato broth served over polenta, it's the hearty peasant dish of your dreams.
