Portland, Oregon-based chain the Old Spaghetti Factory serves up plenty of options besides its namesake pasta. Diners can start with olive tapenade and toasted ravioli, among other appetizers, and then select from a variety of entrées including meat loaf, vegetarian lasagna and, of course, pasta. Pasta dishes are available with either angel-hair, whole-wheat or gluten-free pasta, and sauces include meat sauce, white clam sauce and Sicilian meatballs with marinara. Or try one of the restaurant's specialties, Mizithra cheese and browned butter pasta. At the Old Spaghetti Factory guests can enjoy a complete meal: Entrées come with bread, soup or salad, coffee, tea or milk and spumoni.
Seinfeld fans need no introduction to the first St. Louis branch of this national chain. Founder Al Yeganeh was the inspiration for the sitcom's infamous Soup Nazi -- an association that Yeganeh has disavowed. Still, the décor will remind you of the sensation that episode caused: There are poster-size newspaper articles praising Yeganehs soup; a TV set plays nonstop footage of Yeganeh on the news. That's a lot of hype, and the best soups (almost) justify it. Crab bisque brims with buttery sweet meat. Mulligatawny is complex and peppery, and yankee bean soup with bacon has a wonderfully smoky depth. Combos (soup paired with a salad or half of a sandwich) are a good deal.
While you may not be able to place your bets at the Over/Under, its 37 TVs definitely make it easy to follow all your picks. Located in the historic Lammert Building, the bar and grill's high ceilings, concrete floor, large windows and exposed ceiling match the look and feel of its Washington Avenue neighborhood. In addition to wall-to-wall sports coverage, including dual private screens in each booth, the Over/Under also offers standard pub fare with a hint of not-so-standard classiness. Their fries are waffle cut and come with a Gorgonzola cream sauce. And while the nachos come with the expected beef-and-nacho-cheese combo, expect flower tortillas, chorizo and an avocado crema on your plate as well. For those in the mood for a burger to go with the game, diners can choose between a half-pound of Angus beef or a trio of American Kobe sliders. The upper-deck level is home-sweet-home cozy; there's also a beautiful outdoor patio for those who want to dine al fresco. Drinks aren't sports-bar cheap, but then again, you're in the Audi of sports bars.
