Whether stopping by for a business lunch or grabbing a bite before the ball game, J. Buck's downtown location offers a casual spot for food and drink. With high ceilings and its brick interior, J. Buck's has an almost loft-like setting. Their large menu includes stone-fired pizzas, a variety of salads and an extensive barbecue menu, including pulled pork, beef brisket, turkey and chicken, and the traditional sides. J. Buck's also serves seafood, steak and sandwiches. The bar features a large variety of beers on tap and by the bottle, wine and a full bar. The restaurant also has space available for parties and meetings.
Downtown sports bar Jack Patrick's offers fans a place to go before, during or after the game, especially for those staying up until 3 a.m. It's primarily a sports bar, but the crowd ranges from the sweaty post-Cards hordes to collegiate hipsters. You'll find friendly local musicians behind the bar who know the meaning of a sympathetic pour. With potato skins, chicken strips, salads, burgers, pizza and the "Jack Patrick's slinger" -- fried potatoes topped with a burger, chili, cheese and crisp onion strings -- the menu features game-day grub. Diners order at a window by the bar and then choose a seat in the large dining area or pass the time shooting pool or playing shuffleboard.
With the look and feel of a traditional sushi restaurant, Jade is a downtown lunch spot by day and a late-night sushi lounge during club hours. The sushi menu includes standard nigiri and maki, a pre-priced chef's-choice roll and a list of special rolls with names not found on a fish tank. Their "DJ E Roll" takes a shrimp tempura roll with cucumber, cream cheese, avocado and crab salad and adds an extra crunch. For fans of crab and then some, there is the "Big & Crazy" roll with soft-shell crab, crab salad, shrimp tempura, vegetables and sauce. The menu also includes a selection of rolled sushi for diners who prefer to steer clear of raw fish, or any fish for that matter, with different ingredients such as chicken, Doritos or beef. Jade also offers a full menu of familiar Chinese cuisine.
Former Cardinals center fielder Jim Edmonds and business partner Mark Winfield hit a home run with Jim Edmonds 15 Steakhouse, an upscale steak house and lounge. The brief menu features excellent steaks, of course - the dry-aged strip is worth the extra scratch - but the kitchen lavishes attention on every element of the menu, including non-steak entrées and desserts. The people-watching in the surprisingly small dining room is excellent (and even better in the lounge areas). Upstairs from the restaurant, Club 15 is a dimly lit room where pretty young things and the guys who lust after them toss back vodka Red Bulls in plastic cups and get busy on the dance floor. Exposed brick and red lights will make you feel like you're partying in someone's loft, though the ambiance is minimal at best. DJs spin a variety of hip-hop and Top 40, and the young crowd seems ready to party all night.
Jimmy John's sandwich empire was founded in an Illinois garage by Jimmy John Liautaud, who graduated at the bottom of his high-school class. Clearly he showed them, since the company now boasts more than 1,200 franchises across forty states. The chain advertises "free smells" and "freaky fast delivery" of its sandwiches, constructed from house-baked French bread (or seven-grain or even a lettuce wrap, for all the St. Louis carb-counters) and a fairly minimalist selection of toppings: fresh meats like shaved roast beef, baked turkey breast, bacon, ham and salami, plus a token tuna option, and provolone, provolone, or provolone cheese (sorry, American lovers). Massive cookie and dill pickles are also available. Find your nearest Jimmy John's freaky fast on Voice Places.
It could be the way the Buck name resonates with St. Louisans. Or maybe it's because of its location close to Busch Stadium. Joe Buck's downtown -- all high ceilings, big windows and exposed brick -- is a warm, convivial place to take in a game and some grub. The burgers here are standouts, and its barbecue - pork, wings, turkey, beef brisket or even Provel and tomato sausage - is not to be ignored either. The wine and beer lists are well-rounded and affordable, and its spacious, casual-cool environs all but guarantee an open seat for fans of all stripes.
The lovely Terrace View restaurant in the northeast corner of fun, funky Citygarden sculpture park has been revamped as a...chili parlor. Not that there’s anything wrong with chili — or the restaurant’s straightforward menu of hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches — in theory. But if you’re going to serve chili in one of downtown’s crown jewels, it had better be a helluva chili, which this isn’t. The chicken chili (more of a chicken and white bean stew) fares better, and the hot dogs (all-beef Nathan’s) are solid.
