The Crossing

7823 Forsyth Blvd. Clayton, MO 63105 | Clayton | 314-721-7375

Location Description:

One of the best restaurants in St. Louis, this 70-seat Clayton establishment is the homecoming of chef Jim Fiala, who worked at the renowned Restaurant Daniel in New York. The restaurant's name indicates an intersection of French and Italian influences, which means everything from fresh fish with innovative sauces to Kobe beef short ribs. Vegetables are treated as integral elements rather than secondary side dishes, and even the desserts illustrate impeccable attention to detail.
