Panorama

1 Fine Arts Drive St. Louis, MO 63110 | St. Louis - Forest Park | 314-721-0072

Location Description:

After a series of bad press and financial difficulties, the team behind Panorama at the Saint Louis Art Museum knew they had to make some changes. As part of their reinvention efforts, they brought in a new general manager, a new chef and changed the menu to better reflect the tastes of St. Louis diners. Their efforts paid off. The new (and much improved) Panorama features dressed-up classic dishes, such as apricot baked brie, beef carpaccio and a grilled chicken Waldorf salad. Panorama’s menu also includes several excellent vegetarian options, such as the hearty Ozark Forest mushroom melt and the zucchini, kale and mushroom platter. The croque-madame, overstuffed with thinly shaved ham and accented with apples and sage, is topped with melted Gruyere, béchamel sauce and an over easy egg for an excellent lunch or brunch option. Panorama’s menu also includes several entrees, such as a Burgundy braised short rib, beef tenderloin and grilled chicken. The vegetarian autumn zucchini, kale and mushroom platter, served over goat-cheese polenta, is a must-try, even for meat-eaters. Panorama serves brunch on Sunday, with a menu that includes smoked salmon benedict and decadent stuffed French toast. With its tasty food, gorgeous setting and stunning view, Panorama is a delicious dining destination.
