Robust

227 W. Lockwood Ave. Webster Groves, MO 63119 | Webster Groves | 314-963-0033

Location Description:

An elegant new wine bar in downtown Webster, Robust offers a wide selection of wines by the bottler or the glass. The list is categorized by the wine's profile - that is, robust or generous reds, crisp or luscious whites - rather than varietal or region, and each dish on the menu is matched to a specific profile or two. That menu features small dishes, most of which are meant to be shared: cheeses, cured meats and flatbreads. Items that sound like traditional entrées (roasted chicken, flatiron steak) are served in small portions.
