Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar (1004 Locust Street; 314-241-8141) Not long after it opened, Dave Bailey's downtown beer-pourium and wine bar earned RFT accolades for "Best Beer Selection in a Restaurant." But there's good eats here, though, from seasoned popcorn and spiced nuts to charcuterie and cheese, sandwiches, salads and small entrées. The beer list features well-known craft brewers on three dozen taps and in 200 bottles; the wine list, though not as extensive, offers value.

The Dubliner (1025 Washington Avenue; 314-421-4300) True, St. Paddy's Day is so last week. That just means there'll be room for you and your spandex-clad buds at the Dubliner. Ostensibly a "European gastropub," the place is, as you might expect, all Irish. Good grub, fine pub atmosphere.

Mango Peruvian Cuisine (1101 Lucas Avenue; 314-621-9993) This downtown location of chef Jorge Calvo's popular Shrewsbury eatery features a broad selection of traditional dishes that draw from Spanish and indigenous cuisine as well as Asian and Western European influences. That said, if you don't order ceviche, why are you here?
