10 Photos: The "New" Balaban's in Chesterfield

Posted By on Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 1:00 PM

Been to the new incarnation of Balaban's -- the old Central West End haunt that moved to West County -- that's now known as Balaban's Wine Cellar & Tapas Bar, out in Chesterfield?

If you've yet to make to the new restaurant, which opened in November of last year, and want to take peak at what you're getting into, photographer Jennifer Silverberg brings back these 23 photos of the food, the interior and the chefs in the kitchen.

Also, be sure to read Ian's review of Balaban's in this week's issue.

Here are ten photos:

The classic Balaban's small plate of barbecue salmon is served with black bean hummus, warm slaw and tortilla strips. Here it is paired with a Willamette Valley Argyle Pinot Noir. View the full slideshow here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG
