  • Prasino | Jennifer Silverberg

Prasino (1520 South 5th Street #110, St Charles; 636-277-0202) Building on the success of its Chicago location, Prasino opened its St. Charles location to high acclaim. With an eco-conscious mission, all of its sushi is sustainably harvested. Prasino offers six sushi rolls on its locally focused, farm-to-table menu. There are two gluten-free rolls and one that is entirely vegan. Add a seasonal, craft cocktail such as the "Green" (basil-infused American Harvest organic vodka, strawberry, lemon-lime soda and rhubarb bitters) for a full Prasino experience.

  • The Drunken Fish | Sara Graham

Drunken Fish (1 Maryland Plaza; 314-367-4222) Named "Best Sushi" by the Riverfront Times in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011, Drunken Fish has quickly become one of St. Louis' most popular destinations and is now open at locations in Westport Plaza, Laclede's Landing, Ballpark Village, Kansas City Power and Light District and Leawood, Kansas. A robust sashimi and nigiri menu includes a host of tuna, salmon, red snapper, fresh-water eel and octopus along with original creations, such as the "Yellowtail Mexicano" (yellowtail sashimi seared and topped with jalapeno pico de gallo and ponzu sauce). Customer menu favorites include the vegetable tempura (tempura-fried Japanese sweet potato, zucchini, acorn squash, onions and mushrooms), spicy baked mussels (New Zealand green mussels topped with a Japanese spicy sauce baked and garnished with black tobiko and scallions) and steak teriyaki.

SubZero Vodka Bar (308 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-1200) St. Louis' only vodka bar (with more than 500 varieties on offer) is also a prime sushi destination. Twenty-six signature sushi options and twelve traditional maki options round out a menu of dishes from all over the world. Traditional favorites and sushi specialties can be ordered every day until last call along with what it claims is the largest selection of vodka in the world. An added bonus -- a chance to rub elbows with Hollywood celebrities. Dan Akroyd, George Clooney and Sammy Hagar have all, at one time or another, grabbed a drink at SubZero Vodka Bar.
