A stunning sight to behold, Panorama is the Saint Louis Art Museum’s culinary answer to the beautiful canvasses that hang on its walls. Located in the East Building expansion, Panorama offers seasonal lunches, as well as Friday dinner and Sunday brunch, in a setting that offers sweeping views of Art Hill. Chef Edward Farrow, a CIA-educated chef with a background in museum dining, has crafted a menu that showcases local ingredients. Some of the better offerings are the warm water blue crab cakes and appetizer of local Andouille sausage. Dinner entrees are still a work in progress; while pleasing to the eye execution is sometimes an issue. Dinner features items such as local lamb stew and grilled Missouri trout, which were well conceived but suffered from seasoning and overcooking problems. Panorama is worth a visit, however, if for nothing more than its beautiful setting and adequate offerings. The restaurant also offers Sunday brunch which was not reviewed.
