Basso is Italian for low, and this restaurant is located in the cavernous basement of the Restaurant at the Cheshire. Part of the multimillion-dollar renovation of the Cheshire hotel on the western edge of the city, Basso boasts as its chef Patrick Connolly, a St. Louis native who made his name (including a James Beard Foundation award) in Boston and New York City before returning home. His menu is “Italian gastropub,” which in practice means excellent wood-fired pizzas and rustic pasta dishes. The “McDowell’s Golden Arcs,” with speck, delicata squash and Fontina, is a standout pizza. Among the pastas, try the mafalda, thin ribbons of pasta tossed with a beef and pork ragù, pecorino romano and breadcrumbs.
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.
A small, higher-end national chain, BlackFinn American Grille (located in the St. Louis Galleria) offers something for everyone, from chicken tenders to crab cakes, fish and chips to Chilean sea bass. Those fish and chips bring tender slabs of haddock in a crisp jacket of deep-fried batter; the fried calamari are pretty good, as is a soft pretzel appetizer. Stop by on your way (or from) the mall's many, many shopping opportunities.
There's nothing particularly Northeastern about the food at this chain. But whatever direction you're coming from in St. Louis, you can always find the nearest Boston Market on Voice Places. Need a pseudo-home-cooked meal in a hurry? Just roll through the drive-through window (or go inside to be mesmerized by all those chickens slowly revolving on the signature Boston Market rotisserie). The comfort-food menu includes juicy chicken and home-style sides like sweet, crumbly cornbread and ridiculously creamy mac and cheese. Go ahead, put it on a plate and pretend you made it with your own two hands--just be sure to replace the plastic cutlery with the real stuff.
Starrs has provided Richmond Heights with libations for more than 30 years. Now it serves prix-fixe dinners in its 60-seat dining room on Friday and Saturdays from 6 to 11 p.m. Stop by for Beef Tenderloin with Demi-Glaze Wine Port Sauce with Stuffed Tomato and pick up a few bottles of wine on the way out.
California Pizza Kitchen originated in Beverly Hills in 1985, riding the "California cuisine" wave that would come to define the culinary decade; the company now boasts 250 locations of casual sit-down eateries with modern, neutral decor and a casual-yet-upscale feel. A pioneer of envelope-pushing fusion pizzas, the chain claims to have invented the now-ubiquitous barbecue chicken pizza, an anchor of a menu that offers pies topped with everything from Thai-spiced chicken with peanut sauce and bean sprouts to bacon, avocado and mayo-dressed lettuce on three different crust options: original, honey-wheat or thin and crispy. Besides the namesake pizzas, CPK offers hungry St. Louis diners a full menu of "California twist[s] on global flavors" including enormous salads like the Spago-inspired Chinese Chicken and a so-right-now Quinoa and Arugula, plus other globe-trotting items ranging from "Tuscan" hummus and tortilla soup to fish tacos and cedar-plank salmon. California Pizza Kitchen is easy to find on Voice Places.
Cheesecake Factory is a national restaurant chain serving continental American and Italian cuisine. This location is connected to the St. Louis Galleria, with interior and exterior mall entrances.
A space-age version of its fellow drive-thru brethren, all of the Del Taco standards are here: Half-pound burritos, the Macho taco, burgers and fries abound. This location makes for a convenient late-night snack for the South Grand bar crowd and SLU students alike.
No relation to the world's most brilliant scientist, Einstein Bros. Bagels actually was created by the Boston Market company in 1995 as a way to market breakfast food. It now holds the title of the largest retail bagel store in the nation, with nearly 800 stores. Classic bagel flavors like plain, pumpernickel, and "everything," plus more nouveau varieties like spinach florentine, green chile, and chocolate chip, are all baked in-store daily, ready and willing to be sliced, toasted, and augmented with cream cheese "shmears" in a variety of sweet and savory flavors. For St. Louis carb-lovers seeking a bit more substance, Einstein Bros. also offers bagel sandwiches for breakfast and lunch topped with everything from lox and cream cheese to turkey and avocado, plus bagel dogs and pizza bagels that are head and shoulders above the miniscule microwavable variety. You don't have to be a genius to find your local Einstein Bros. on Voice Places.
Five Guys was founded in Arlington, Virginia, in 1986. There are now more than 300 Five Guys locations spread across 25 states. The menu is blissfully simple: burgers, hot dogs and fries. The regular burger has two thin patties, the “little” burger one. You can order your burger plain, with cheese, with bacon or with cheese and bacon. All of the other toppings are free. The list is standard, with raw jalapeño slices being the most exotic. The burgers are terrific, and the French fries are just about perfect. The whole operation is impressively efficient, fast food as it ought to be.
