You might be the straightest Glenn Beck fan in St. Louis County with zero interest in the fabulous life, but you'd still be an idiot to write off Absolutli Goosed. This award-winning gay and lesbian lounge has one of the most expansive martini menus in the city, with names like Pussy Galore, Banana Hammock and Dixie Normous, as well as a laundry list of sips that won't make your grandma blush. Not sure what to order? Belly up to the smooth sea-green bar and ask for a recommendation. The obliging barkeep might even treat you to an off-menu drink like the Basil Smash: grapefruit vodka, lemon, simple syrup and muddled basil.
Baida dishes traditional Moroccan cuisine from its South Grand storefront. Featuring family recipes, owners Abder and Assia Meskine give patrons an authentic taste of their homeland through classic dishes. The menu features a variety of couscous preparations such a vegetable, chicken, lamb or beef, which are enlivened with a side of broth. Baida also serves several different tajine dishes, all presented in the traditional clay cooking vessel. Appetizers, such as loubia, a spiced white bean stew, and bastilla, a sweet and savory chicken pie, serve as delicious starters to the meal. However, the m’lwee steals the show. This rich meat pie is nothing short of spectacular -- layers of flaky phyllo dough wrapped around the most succulent kefta, or ground beef, one could imagine. The kefta is seasoned with garlic, cumin and coriander and is slow cooked so that the spices infuse the meat’s juices. This rich, meaty mixture is encased in the buttery phyllo pouch, which is pan fried to give it a subtle nuttiness. One could end the meal satisfied here, but the briwat, a pastry of almond and honey similar to baklava, caps off the meal with a tasty sweet touch. Check it out for lunch or dinner for a taste of Casablanca.
You might visit this charming South Grand spot for banh mi - it's in the name, after all - delicious sandwiches with thinly sliced meat, pickled vegetables and sometimes pté on a crusty baguette. Or you might decide to test the neon sign in the window that proclaims the best spring rolls in St. Louis. These, too, won't disappoint. Or you might just settle for a simple bowl of pho, redolent of cilantro and basil, or paper-thin char-grilled pork over rice sauced with nuoc cham that hits the perfect spot between sweet and spicy. Whatever you choose, husband-and-wife owners Thomas and Lynne Truong will make sure you leave their restaurant full and happy.
A welcoming environment for the familiar pleasures of Thai cuisine. The staff is friendly, and the dishes are made with quality ingredients and thoughtful attention to detail. The menu features the expected lineup of curries, stir fries and fried-rice dishes. Gang Mussa-Muhn Nuah curry, with peanuts as well as pineapple chunks and tamarind juice is sweet, tart and delicious. The traditional Tom Kha Gai soup is very good. The menu includes a dozen vegetarian dishes and a weekday lunch special.
The Buttery, a small diner on South Grand Boulevard, offers early birds and night owls a chance to get their grub on: The restaurant stays open 24 hours to serve up its traditional diner fare, including burgers and, of course, plenty of breakfast items, such as pancakes, eggs and a slinger. The Buttery serves breakfast anytime and only accepts cash.
Husband-and-wife co-owners Behshid and Hamish Bahrami serve traditional Persian cuisine in this cozy South Grand establishment. It's elegant food: no pretensions, just pure flavors - and a great value as well. Whet your appetite with kashke-bademjune, a mash of eggplant, chickpeas and spices; or osh, a hearty lentil soup. But be sure to leave room for the wide selection of savory stews and grilled meats. Barreh polo, a tremendous shank of lamb, and fessenjoon, boneless chicken breast stewed in a pomegranate-and-walnut sauce, are standouts. Feeling adventurous? Try the tongue, tender slices of beef swimming in a sumptuous golden broth. You might never want a boring old hunk of sirloin again.
The walls are a vivid magenta, the music an eclectic mix of mellow, head-nodding tunes - this is a sushi lounge, not a sushi restaurant. The emphasis is on rolls of the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink variety. The "Godzilla Roll" features tempura-fried tuna and spicy tuna (as well as crisscrossing spicy sauces), while the "Lemon Drop Roll" adds lemon zest and honey wasabi to a standard combination of salmon, crab, cream cheese and avocado. The nigiri sushi selection is conventional. Basic Japanese fare like tempura meat and vegetables, as well as soba and udon noodles, is also available.
