1520 S. 5th St. St. Charles, MO 63303 | St. Charles County | 636-277-0202

Location Description:

The first Missouri outpost for a small, Chicago-based chain of restaurants, Prasino features contemporary American cuisine while adhering to an environmentally conscious philosophy. The menu features a broad spectrum of dishes, from flatbreads to sushi to St. Louis-style pork steak. Especially noteworthy are the pork belly and scallop tacos, a fun, fusion-style interpretation of a classic Mexican dish. Another must-try are the beef short ribs, simmered for hours in a truffled Cabernet mushroom sauce – this refined comfort food is the perfect dish for a cool evening. The large bar at Prasino provides a lively spot to sample fresh sushi and eclectic small plates over seasonal cocktails. While food and service can be a bit inconsistent, depending on the size of the crowd, Prasino provides a nice alternative to the large chains that overpopulate the St. Charles area.
