Scape American Bistro

48 Maryland Plaza St. Louis, MO 63108 | St. Louis - Central West End | 314-361-7227

Location Description:

Scape fits right into the swanky Maryland Plaza landscape. It even has a chandelier to add to the glam. Dishes keep with the classy from duck confit to lobster mac & cheese. Sunday brunch offerings include chocolate pancakes, corned beef hash and eggs Benedict. The addition of a courtyard bar as Scape has opened up more space for happy-hour crowds or night owls to stop in for a sip and order from the regular menu or, after 9 p.m., enjoy items such as nachos and ceviche from the courtyard menu.
