Bambino's Restaurant and Bar is located on Commerce Drive, just off the outer road of I-55 and Vogel Road in Arnold. But even though Bambino's large outdoor patio overlooks the highway, it somehow still achieves the relaxing feel of a private wooded winery. Along with a long list of imported wines, beers and liquors, Bambino's specializes in Italian food. To top off Bambino's large portions at decent prices, happy hour is weekdays from 2 to 6 p.m.; you can get select appetizers for half off, $2 domestics and $3.75 rail mixers.
This Bellacino's in Arnold is part of the grinder chain started in 1998, with each location locally owned and operated. Its menu focuses on salads, pizza and grinders (natch), with a section devoted to lighter options that use fat-free mozzarella and fat-free mayonnaise. Not interested in the lighter side of life? Go for the "Bomber" -- thin-sliced rib-eye steak with mushrooms, green peppers, cheese, lettuce, tomato and "thick and hearty sauce" or the Italian grinder which is stuffed with ham, salami, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.
The phrase "comfort food" has been bandied about so much that it's become a cliché. Stale notion or not, the Blue Owl satisfies these longings in a country-diner atmosphere. Owner Mary Hostetter's Texas roots are evident in menu items such as biscuits and gravy topped with crumbled pork sausage, chicken-fried steak with country gravy and red-velvet cake. The influence of German immigrants on this region is also apparent, with German potato salad and German chocolate cake, cheesecake and pie. Even the Great Flood of 1993, whose roiling waters threatened to engulf Kimmswick, is commemorated with "levee-high apple pie."
