Amid the restaurant mecca that is Westport lies one of the five area Casa Gallardo Mexican restaurants. True to its brethren, ,this location also offers items that have become go-to Mexican-restaurant faves. Start off with guacamole made tableside then cruise on to the burritos, chimichangas or perhaps a combination platter, for the undecided.
Dim lighting and secluded booths make Charlie Gitto's a great place to be romantic, incognito or both: No one will notice you, because the crowd is always intent on the huge plates of old-school St. Louis-style Italian food set before them. Fried calamari, served with a citrus chipotle mayo sauce, is crunchy and spicy. The standout entrée is the tenderloin Siciliano: a buttery cut of beef two inches thick, smothered with Provel and mushrooms and surrounded by a phalanx of tasty vegetables. See listing for second location under "Downtown."
Chihuahua's Mexican Restaurant is a Mexican restaurant located in Maryland Heights.
St. Louis diners who have never managed to master Starbucks' sizing system will find Cold Stone Creamery's similarly challenging; the ice-cream chain eschews small, medium, and large in favor of "Like It," "Love It," and "Gotta Have It" sizes. Once the portion is picked, patrons can concoct their own creations from super-premium ice cream flavors like vanilla, cake batter, chocolate, strawberry and coffee, plus a kaleidoscope of toppings: nuts, brownies, cookies, candy, and even chunks of pie crust. The Creamery's ice cream engineers will scoop your selections onto a frozen slab and deftly fold in the toppings, ensuring that you won't have to hunt very far with your spoon for another hunk of cookie dough. Voice Places has Cold Stone Creamery down cold.
Riverport's self-proclaimed "largest dining and entertainment extravaganza in Missouri" is like Chuck E. Cheese on growth hormones. On weekends, a tram service takes you from the vast parking lot to a structure so big they give you a map in the lobby. Inside, the place throbs like a hangover after a three-day debauch in Vegas. Dinner in the Grand Dining Room -- a posh enclave richly appointed with Tiffanyesque fixtures, dark wood and white linen -- exceeds expectations: The charbroiled sirloin is good and garlicky, and the barbecued pork ribs are wonderful.
Though its downtown location has closed, that hasn't stopped Dierdorf & Hart's from keeping up with its reputation as an upscale steak house. Starters include salads that can be topped with a variety of housemade dressings, but steak rules at Dierdorf & Hart's, with options such as a boneless strip steak - available in either 12-, 18- or 24-ounce portions - or, for the serious carnivore, a 30-ounce porterhouse. Dierdorf & Hart's also offers seafood, including lobster tail and salmon. Even vegetarians can get dolled up and enjoy the Dierdorf & Hart's experience - a vegetarian lasagna joins the other entree choices. For frugal diners who want the most bang for their buck, Dierdorf & Hart's also features a three-course prix-fixe menu.
Audacious sushi creations in a mod lounge setting: The Drunken Fish is like one giant experiment to see just how sexy raw fish (and other Japanese food styles) can go. The house rolls throw together everything but the sushi mat: crab meat, radish sprouts, scallions, carrots, eel sauce, avocado, baked scallops, asparagus, tempura, mayonnaise -- and, oh yeah, sometimes rice too. Simpler preparations excel here, like the clean tuna tataki and steak teriyaki, the tempura vegetables and the ice cream-based desserts. As St. Louis' latest stab at a bona fide sushi lounge, the Drunken Fish may prove the start of a whole new dining trend. See listing for second location under "Midtown/West End."
