Five Bistro (5100 Daggett Avenue, 314-773-5553) is celebrating chef Anthony Devoti's birthday Thursday night with one of their acclaimed wine dinners. Hosted by Falcor Napa Valley's Ryan Bee, the dinner pairs five wines with a five-course dinner handpicked by Devoti.

Bee, Falcor's winemaker, is in St. Louis from California and will be on hand to explain the wines and how they are made. "He's a pretty interesting dude," Devoti tells Gut Check. "Our wine dinners are usually pretty awesome. Of course, I'm biased." One of his favorite pairings of the night is a 2012 Trousseau Gris from the Russian River Valley -- "an awesome dry white wine, pretty rare grape" -- with a house-cured Neah Bay ivory salmon.

"The tomatoes are going to be from our garden that we have out back, so we'll probably be doing some garden tours as well," Devoti says. The dinner, at 7 p.m., is $85 per person and reservations are required. Call 314-773-5553 to nab a spot.
