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.
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.
Chef Lou Rook's imaginative cooking makes this a castle fit for a king. Specialties such as smoked trout come from Troutdale Farms, but Rook is at his best mixing and matching things such as jumbo lump crab and andouille cakes with chipotle aioli. There's also a wide selection of burgers and sandwiches. The 700-label wine list is a recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.
Part of the Michael Del Pietro group of restaurants that includes Via Vino, Del Pietro's, Luciano's Trattoria, Sugo's Spaghetteria, Babbo's lies in a strip mall across from Plaza Frontenac. The concise menu includes a small selection of antipasti, including bruschetta and eggplant. The main event features pastas, with spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna and the risotto of the day among the choices, as well as a variety of pizzas,chicken, veal and fish rounding out the menu.
Bacana Brasil is a churrascaria: You sit at your table, and costumed "gauchos" bring you meat until you tell them to stop. Most selections at least offer the simple pleasures of grilled meat. Standouts include juicy, tender top-round sirloin and super-size lamb shish kebabs. Side dishes and salads are available from the salad bar and hot buffet -- but considering how much meat you'll ingest, you probably shouldn't visit these more than once. Everything but drinks and dessert (if you can manage it) are included in the all-you-can-eat price.
A homage to the late, iconic Central West End restaurant. Owner Steve McIntyre, a long-time owner of the original Balaban's, has fashioned this new edition as a more casual restaurant serving mostly small plates. These include both classic Balaban's dishes - cucumber bisque, beef Wellington - and familiar bistro fare. The best bet might be the flatbread pizza, especially the version with spinach, fontina cheese and caramelized onion. This Balaban's also sells retail wine and offers carryout meals.
Voice Places is your guide to Ben & Jerry's in St. Louis. The brainchild of two self-proclaimed Vermont hippies back in the 1970s, Ben & Jerry's has grown into a worldwide ice cream empire. Despite being bought out by megacorporation Unilever in 2000, the brand has remained true to its crunchy roots by supporting various causes such as campaign spending reform and even the Occupy movement. Its scoop shops serve up all the B&J's classics, from wacky flavors named for jam bands (Phish Food and Cherry Garcia) to newer creations like the Stephen Colbert-endorsed Americone Dream, plus sundaes, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks.

Gelato is ice cream, except it's better. In Italy, gelato is eaten every day, three times a day, after every meal, often as a meal itself. Or at least it should be. At Benito's Gelato, a rainbow of creamy, bright-colored ribbons of gelato keeps cool behind the glass counter. Made fresh each day by slowly freezing all the ingredients, the gelato at Benito's comes in a variety of available flavors of fresh fruits, nuts, chocolates and liqueurs. Espresso and coffee drinks are also available.
Owner Ben Bishop Jr. wanted to create a restaurant that would pay homage to Chesterfield’s roots. The result of his efforts is Bishop’s Post, a restaurant that touts “classic comfort fare,” but feels more like an American-style bistro. Bishop’s Post is a comfortable, beautiful restaurant, and its lush, landscaped patio — complete with a waterfall — is one of the loveliest in town. Food, however, is inconsistent. Appetizers range from a delicious sweet-corn and roasted green-chile tamale to a beef tenderloin bruschetta with caramelized onions, roasted garlic and Asiago cheese that is so tender it melts in the mouth. Entrees include a variety of steaks and chops, as well as bistro classics such as grilled duck breast and sautéed quail-breast medallions. Execution is spotty, but the setting and service are worth a drink and appetizer at happy hour.
