    Anthony's Bar
    Bohemian meets upper crust when the Bommarito family of five-diamond Tony's fame shakes things up at suppertime. Anthony's Bar extends its power-lunch reputation beyond the dinner hour with appetizers like a pulled pork tamale and entrées like herb-stuffed salmon and a grilled porkchop with roasted tomatoes and potatoes. The menu is brief and reasonably priced, the atmosphere casual -- if frozen in a ´70s time warp. As at Tony's, expect great attention to the food and service (the two restaurants share a kitchen).
    Asia
    Asia reflects only a sliver of the titular continent's size and cultural variety. Instead it focuses on those countries many might think of when they hear the phrase "Asian cuisine": China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. Sushi is prepared well, though the fish itself is merely good, not outstanding. Entrées lean toward Chinese and Chinese-American dishes like General Tso's chicken; house specialties include Peking duck and an excellent Cornish hen dish. The Cornish hen is one of the few values on a relatively high-priced menu.
    The Crack Fox
    At The Crack Fox, visitors can feel free to let their freak flag fly or simply play the role of a leisurely standby. All are welcome at this eclectic downtown dive -- just don't be surprised to see anything from burlesque and drag performances one night to bondage and gotchic industrial garb the next. EDM spins, karaoke, open mics, metal shows and more also make up the list of participatory alternative entertainment offered here, and there's a huge selection of beer and handcrafted cocktails to wash it all down with. Take, for instance, the "ginger snap" made with ginger vodka, cinnamon Schnapps and lemonade. Come in to pick your poison and meet the cast of friendly fun-loving regulars, and don't forget to bring an open mind.
    Jack Patrick's Bar & Grill
    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.
    King Louie's Empire Deli & Pizza
    The King Louie's in King Louie's Empire Deli & Pizza refers not to the late, much loved restaurant on Chouteau Avenue but an even older spot in Wood River, Illinois. Lou Rook Jr. (father of Annie Gunn’s chef Lou Rook III) founded that King Louie’s, and his sons Dave and Mike have opened this deli and by-the-slice pizza joint on Washington Avenue. Pizza slices are appropriately huge and blanketed in melted mozzarella. You can also order whole pies with the toppings of your choice, or you can choose one of the restaurant’s specialty pies. The deli menu features several sandwiches, including a classic Reuben, a stack of rare roast beef and a sort-of upscale cheesesteak featuring thinly sliced rib eye.
    Peet's Coffee & Tea
    Before visitors enter the fray of slots, lights, music and booze at Lumière Place, they can sit and sip a coffee or tea at Peet's Coffee & Tea tucked away on the side of the building that houses the casino and its accompanying restaurants. Part of the chain that originated in Berkeley, California, the Peet's at Lumière is the only one in Missouri. The coffee shop serves up an array of specialty coffees including lattes and mochas, as well as an extensive selection of teas.
    Voce
    Since it opened in December 2012, Voce, "a venue for all voices," as owner Steve Scaglione puts it, has hosted everything from jazz, blues and folk to the occasional punk show. The black and red room features a small unintimidating stage, tables for sitting, a full bar and plenty of standing room to get up close to the performance. The downtown spot connects directly to Maurizio's Pizza & Sports Bar, which spits out hand-tossed New York style pizzas every night of the week late into the evening. Get an Italian tinged experience by pairing some pizza with a performance.
