No, small plates are not going away. Embrace it, because it means you get to eat lots of different stuff, and it's usually paired with great cocktails or wine. Although some people are sticklers for what actually constitutes tapas, we lost that war long ago. Just go with it.

Sanctuaria Wild Tapas (4198 Manchester Avenue; 314-535-9700)

Believe it or not, the 150 different drinks aren't the only reason to come to Sanctuaria. It is a tapas restaurant, after all, serving "wild" and "eclectic" small plates. Try the plump camarónes, which are simmered in a thick, garlicky, peppery tomato sauce or the jalapeno-studded cornbread with honey butter along with that award-winning cocktail. Hey, it's OK if you don't wanna share those piquillo peppers stuffed with goat cheese. We don't either.
