  • Brussels sprouts -- but from where?

UPDATE on July 10: It's been a month, and we have no winner, so we're just going to give this answer away. We were dining at Robust Wine Bar in Webster Groves. We're awfully pleased to have evaded detection!

Also, because so many people have indicated problems with our commenting system, we're going to put the next one of these on hold until we can achieve our switch to our new website and new commenting system. We're trying to make that happen as soon as possible, but we suspect it may not be until September. We'll see you then for more giveaway fun.

Original post follows ....

Brussels sprouts have become shockingly ubiquitous in recent years. From an unloved vegetable to a small plates must-have, they've been gussied up with everything from a rash of bacon to a fresh-cracked egg and Siracha.

But what caught our eye about this particular presentation is how light and summery it is. No heavy flavors here; at this restaurant, the chef has steamed the wee cabbages and served them with a soft cheese over polenta. Delicious -- and different.

So where are we eating this lovely summery side dish? Simply study the photo and leave your best guess in the comments. If you give us the first correct answer, we'll give you $20 to La Tejana (3149 N. Lindbergh Boulevard, 314-291-8500).

Rules: To be eligible, you must leave a valid e-mail address (or Twitter handle or Facebook profile URL) in the comment-entry field. One guess per e-mail address. Employees of the restaurant in question and the Riverfront Times are not eligible.

Also: We still don't have a winner from last week, and that's not for a lack of trying. Our dinner of St. Louis-style pizza stumped more than a dozen commenters. No, it's not Imo's, and it wasn't another local chain either.

Feel like giving it another try? We'll keep the contest open till Friday. Hit us with your best guess on that one and you could still win $25 to DePalm Tree.

We welcome tips and feedback. Email the writer at
