The restaurant focuses on affordable, family-friendly white-tablecloth dining. Weekday diners can sit at the bar and enjoy "bar bites," Bravo's take on tapas. Weekend brunch offers frittatas, omelets, and French toast stuffed with cream cheese, cinnamon and honey, among other items. Bravo's lunch and dinner choices include bruschetta, fried calamari, pizza, steak, pork chops, seafood and specialty dishes, such as veal Marsala, alongside pasta dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs and the restaurant's "signature dish" - pasta Bravo!, rigatoni with grilled chicken and mushrooms in a roasted-red pepper cream sauce.

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.
Chick-fil-A is a national fast-food chain serving chicken and American food. This location is located in the food court inside mall West County Center in Des Peres.
Home of the original chicken sandwich--not to mention nuggets, strips, and those illustrious waffle fries, plus lemonade made from actual lemons--Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A found itself mired in controversy in early 2012 when company president Dan Cathy publicly shared his views against gay marriage. LGBT groups revolted and the media had a field day, with activists staging same-sex kissing demonstrations inside the restaurant and thousands of customers vowing to boycott the chicken chain. But ultimately the brouhaha doesn't seem to have hurt business; loyal fans are still packing the St. Louis drive-thru daily to be served by the most polite employees in the fast food world, who without fail refill drinks with a simple "My pleasure." Chick-fil-A's just a click away on Voice Places.
