Local diners looking for the best steak house in town are in luck, on account of one of them letting it be known right there in their name for us. Located on Grand Boulevard across from the fabulous Fox Theatre, where adjectives rule, the Best Steak House tells you what to expect before you walk in the door. Their menu, not surprisingly, features steaks, porterhouse, T-bone, strip, rib eye and sirloin. Best Steak also serves sandwiches, a common carryout item for the lunch crowd, holding items such as fried fish, gyro meat, chicken, pork and, naturally, steak. Other menu options include salads, chicken strips and, when available, chili. Diners will find a casual atmosphere where no reservations are required at Best Steak House, but they do recommend calling ahead for faster carryout service.
Mid-priced bistro fare is served here, with eclectic influences ranging from the Basque country to the Caribbean. A good excuse to go to Grand Center for something other than a show or the symphony.
The Centene Center for Arts and Education began its life in the late 1880s when Jacob Mahler built a dance studio. In 1906, Ann Hamilton Bailey deeded additional frontage space and in 1907, Archbishop John J. Glennon dedicated the new home of the Knights of Columbus with great fanfare and spectacle. This architectural masterpiece, designed by Baker and Knell, would become the showpiece for the Knights of Columbus for decades to come.
Back in 1987, Circus Flora became St. Louis' own one-ring circus, and year after year, the circus performing-arts company continues to wow audiences of all ages. The air-conditioned big top only occupies its designated space behind Powell Symphony Hall for about a month or so in the late spring/early summer, but even still, the magic that emanates from the intimate cherry-red tent -- there's not a bad seat in the house -- can be felt throughout Grand Center and beyond. Expect to witness jaw-dropping human aerial and acrobatic feats, alongside skilled animal acts with a whole lot of heart, all knitted together with live music and a unique story each season.
Opened in June 2010, the second location of late-night mainstay City Diner gives Grand Center visitors and theatergoers alike the opportunity to grab a bite to eat before or after a night on the town. The expansive menu provides items for all tastes. Feel like breakfast? Choose from such items as eggs Benedict (there's also a veggie version), a slinger, omelets and a country fried steak. In the mood for dinner fare? City Diner's got you covered, with dishes such as meat loaf, liver and onions, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches or finger foods such as quesadillas and chicken strips. This location, like its older sibling, keeps with the retro diner décor.
This self-proclaimed "center for grass roots culture" offers art shows, live performances, public dialogue on topics of social interest, guest speakers, coffee, a quiet place to read and break dancin' on Saturdays.
Shutterbugs and wine-os alike will delight in Grand Center's latest nighttime destination: the Dark Room. Part art gallery and part bar, the Dark Room features monthly photography exhibits curated by the International Photography Hall of Fame alongside an artisan wine program highlighting a substantial selection by the glass or bottle. The minimal space features decorative vintage film equipment and clean, contemporary design.
