Among the clubs and hip hangouts on Washington Avenue downtown lies 12th Street Diner. The place is a throwback to the '50s and rock & roll. The menu features root beer floats, omelets, pot roast and burgers, including the La Bamba burger that is topped with pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, chipotle mayo and guacamole. This bright spot also features another diner classic: apple pie, cherry pie and a pie du jour.
17th Street Bar & Grill is a barbecue restaurant in Murphysboro.
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.

Edwardsville's 222 Artisan Bakery offers more than the grab-it-and-go options typical of many coffee shop/bakery combos. Within the small, unassuming cafe lies an extensive menu, including sandwiches such as tuna, chicken salad and a create-your-own option, allowing diners to select their choice of bread, cheese, meat, spreads (tapenade, aioli and mayo, to name a few) and veggies. 222 also has pizza Fridays, another opportunity for diners to let their creative juices flow and select from such toppings at feta cheese and andouille sausage.
Though unassuming and simple from the outside, 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar provides outstanding hospitality, more than 700 wines and one of the best beer lists in the city. The result is a relaxing yet engaging opportunity to sip, contemplate or just plain drink your vino. Though lacking a full menu, there's a nice array of cheese, cured meats and crackers to hold you over. Pricing is great, with bottles marked up just $9 over 33's very competitive "take home" prices (it is a wine shop, too), which makes 33 a great place to go big on a specialty bottle. The oft-rotating draft selection, along with the list of bottled brew, highlights great beers both American and imported, many of which are rarely available on tap locally.
3500 Winehaus offers classic wine-bar fare too accompany its extensive selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Inside offers bistro seating and couches to lounge in or, when weather permits, oenophiles can indulge their pleasures on the patio. 3500 Winehaus' concise menu includes meat-and-cheese plates as well as sweet and savory cakes from Hank's Cheesecakes.
Ain't nothing like a good rooftop bar, and 360 is one of the swankest. Occupying the entire top floor of the Hilton at the Ballpark, 360 offers a view that rivals the Arch, without the cramped space of those washing machine-sized trams inside our unmistakable landmark. The owners of 360 spared no expense; the posh interior features a spectacular two-story waterfall, elegant bars both inside and out, and glassed-in VIP seating for the well-heeled. The extravagant menu features high-end and locally-sourced ingredients, and a perfectly curated drink list that will make your mouth water. From the roof deck, check out the nearby Gateway Arch and the Mississippi River churning just underneath, the cityscape to the west and a unique vantage point directly into Busch Stadium.
4 Seasons Bakery in St. Charles, owned by Agi and Aaron Groff, specializes in pastries, pies and other baked goods. From their tiny storefront, the Groffs have been producing some of the finest pastry in the area, using only natural ingredients. Their macaroons and Linzer torte are rightly lusted after. But it's their pie we swoon for. The crust has achieved the perfect medium. The fillings, made from seasonal fruit, are good, too: sweet but not cloying.
Located in the spacious, open lobby of the Merchant's Laclede building, which also happens to be home to the boutique, luxurious Hilton hotel, 400 Olive offers diners an upscale casual dining experience. This "urban grille" takes advantage of its location by placing diners in an elevated corner of the hotel's atmospheric charm. Lunch options include pastas, burgers and sandwiches, including a grilled crab cake sandwich and a seared tuna sandwich. Dinner entrees feature a filet, a rib eye and a tuna steak, as well as a maple-glazed pork loin and a macadamia nut-crusted salmon. 400 Olive also prepares an Amber Bock onion soup, with gruyère and provolone cheeses, and a cheesecake, savory not sweet, of smoked trout, served with an onion relish. Coffee and various desserts are also available.
