Since 1916 the Failoni family has been quietly turning out some of the best food in St. Louis inside this pile of bricks along an industrial stretch of Manchester. What food! A soaring lemon garlic chicken, a to-die-for Sicilian salad and a pan-fried chicken dinner on Tuesday nights that's nothing short of wonderful. On Thursday and Friday nights, Alex Jr. breaks out the karaoke machine and croons spot-on Sinatra covers. If you want to take in that show, you'll need to reserve a table in advance -- and prepare to enjoy one of St. Louis' hidden gems.
A decade ago there were more than 200 days of horseracing each year at Fairmount Park. These days there are 60. With the deals the track is trotting out, it's hard to fathom why people aren't flocking to play the ponies. Take Fairmount's Horse Hooky Tuesdays, which promise a full afternoon of thoroughbred racing for the cheap admission price of $1.50. Not only is the crowd more colorful on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. (crusty, cigar-chomping old men and Mexican cowboys, mostly) but with $2 bottles of Coors and 75-cent hot dogs, you can get a belly full of beer and hot food for less than a two-horse exacta box. Of course, if you also play that exacta box, you stand a chance of walking out with more than you came in with.
A contemporary take on the old-fashioned lunch wagon, with food prepared in a traditional commercial kitchen and dished up from the back of a modified pickup. The signature sandwich, a strange mixture of falafel and couscous, is actually the one to skip. The gyro, on the other hand, is good, featuring thin and tender strips of beef. Also available is a curried chicken sandwich. The side dish is a sack of fried naan chips with dipping sauces. Follow Falafelwich on Twitter @falafelwich.
