17th Street Bar & Grill 1711 West Highway 50, O'Fallon, Illinois; 618-622-1717. Mike Mills has been named grand champion at the annual Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest (a.k.a. the Super Bowl of Swine) three times -- a dynasty as notable as the Yankees of the late 1990s or the Patriots of this decade. His trademark sauce is a coppery brown, layered with flavor and applied with proper restraint. Two- and three-meat plates allow you to sample several different meats (brisket, chicken, pork shoulder, spicy smoked beef sausage), but the standout dish is the baby back ribs. Smoked in a pit over apple- and cherry-wood for as long as seven hours, Mills' ribs taste like pork raised on pure autumn sunshine.
St. Louis has approximately 1 million Italian restaurants, but nothing like Acero. Here you don't choose between the red sauce or the white, and you won't find Provel on anything. Sample salumi from the nation's top artisanal producers, or share a quartino of Amarone wine with a special someone. Pasta dishes, especially, are exquisite - small portions crafted with incredible attention to detail; polenta is poured tableside onto a marble slab and then topped with one of several sumptuous sauces. You're meant to order in the traditional Italian style - antipasto, pasta, then entrée -- but there are no rules except to celebrate the sheer joy of good food and wine.
A cocoon of comfort - even elegance -hidden in a Chesterfield strip mall. The menu at Addie's Thai House generally hews to the template of St. Louis-area Thai restaurants, but it's worth veering off course to try one of the house specialties - like gang kua ped yang, an incredible red curry with duck breast, or soft-shell crab pan-fried in a garlic-pepper sauce. If the other dishes are conventional, they are no less outstanding, especially the assertive green curry. Without question, one of St. Louis' best Thai restaurants.
Built by Adolphus Busch around 1914, this magnificent example of the beer-baron-bravado style of architecture now features competent lighter, updated versions of classic German cooking mixed in with basic steaks and seafood, along with a quintessential apple strudel for dessert.
Al's Restaurant Just north of the flashy Lumière Place downtown lies Al's Restaurant, which has enjoyed its home along the riverfront for 85 years. The upscale restaurant serves all the perennial favorites, including escargot, lobster tails and steak tartar for starters. Al's only serves dinner, which offers a selection of steaks such as steak Diane and filet mignon or the "Italian Dinner" -- a filet alongside veal parmigiano. Not in the mood for steak? No problem: Al's also offers a variety of veal preparations, pork chops seafood and duck breast among their entrees. Reservations are recommended.
Alexander's Restaurant, tucked in the back corner of the Sheraton in downtown Clayton, is a spacious hotel dining option. Their menu includes familiar American fare, such as pasta, sandwiches, steaks and fish. Sunday dinner is served in the lounge instead of the main dining room, both located on the main floor of the hotel.
America's Incredible Pizza Company is a pizza restaurant located in south county.
The second location of the popular O'Fallon, Illinois, restaurant brings classic steak-house charm - and Andria's famous steak sauce - to west county. The menu is traditional steak-house cuisine: shrimp cocktail, baked potato and lots and lots of steak. Strip and rib-eye steaks bring a great balance of flavor and tenderness. All steaks, as well as the mammoth pork chop, are brushed with the legendary sauce. Though not cheap, Andria's is more casual and value-minded than many old-school steakhouses: Entrées come with a side and a large salad, and feel free to wear jeans.
Peppe's Apartment 2 is the latest venture from St. Louis restaurant mainstay Peppe Profeta, who made a name for himself at Gian-Peppe's on the Hill and, most recently, Trattoria Branica. Apartment 2 provides upscale Italian dining in an ornate setting, complete with plenty of chandeliers. Meals are available in appetizer- and entrée-size choices and include ravioli, veal and rotating seafood specials.
Steven Caravelli, formerly executive chef at Hubert Keller's steak house Sleek, now mans the kitchen at Araka. The menu retains a focus on the cuisines of Europe's Mediterranean coast, though Caravelli intends to home in on local produce and sustainable meat and seafood. New dishes include seared diver scallops with pork belly and a quail egg, a "duo" of local beef and a "tartare" made from beets. Standard and vegetarian tasting menus are available.
Just a couple blocks south of where the Old Barn used to stand, or the Checkerdome as some people remember it, or the St. Louis Arena as it had been officially christened, sits the Arena Bar & Grill. This Dogtown mainstay serves traditional bar fare, such as burgers, wings, fried mushrooms and a variety of sandwiches. Patrons can also enjoy the old Blues memorabilia throughout the establishment that celebrates its past as part of a Cheltenham tradition.
Along busy Hampton Avenue, Ari's offers Greek and American fare in a comfortable dining room or on their spacious patio. The menu includes saganaki, hummus and toasted ravioli. Specialties include their gyro sandwich and chicken souvlaki, with American selections such as a BLT and a club sandwich also available. Entrees range from lamb shank to chicken modiga to filet mignon. Ari's rounds out its menu with a few burgers and pastas. On Saturdays and Sundays Ari's also offers a breakfast buffet, complete with an omelet station. The restaurant has a parking lot on the side.
