Mosaic Bistro Market - Closed

14 N. Central Ave. Clayton, MO 63105 | Clayton | 314-932-7377

Location Description:

A sibling to downtown's Mosaic Modern Fusion - owner Ellen Schmitz is the sister of the original restaurant's Claus Schmitz - Mosaic Bistro Market provides exactly what local diners expect when they hear the term "bistro." There is a lamb shank and a strip steak, bowls of mussels and plates of cheese and charcuterie. The lamb shank is impressive, braised for 30 hours and wonderfully flavorful. Another standout is the scallops, four plump specimens beautifully browned and served with lardons and baby carrots. Fair warning: When busy, the restaurant can be cramped and quite loud.
