Among the clubs and hip hangouts on Washington Avenue downtown lies 12th Street Diner. The place is a throwback to the '50s and rock & roll. The menu features root beer floats, omelets, pot roast and burgers, including the La Bamba burger that is topped with pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, chipotle mayo and guacamole. This bright spot also features another diner classic: apple pie, cherry pie and a pie du jour.
On the southwest corner of Pershing Avenue and Union Boulevard sits the cozy and mellow 2Schae Café, where you will usually find owners Lisa and Don Schaefer working behind, or around, the kitchen counter. Inside this neighborhood café, patrons will find a relaxed atmosphere and casual dining. Breakfast items such as omelets, bagel and lox, French toast and oatmeal are served all day, and their large lunch menu features cold and grilled sandwiches, salads, flat bread pizzas and quesadillas. On Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., 2Schae sells small pizzas made in-house, and on weekend morning and afternoons they serve up stacks of pancakes with a variety of fixings. 2Schae has plenty of seating indoors as well as a few tables and chairs on their patio along Pershing Avenue.
Though unassuming and simple from the outside, 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar provides outstanding hospitality, more than 700 wines and one of the best beer lists in the city. The result is a relaxing yet engaging opportunity to sip, contemplate or just plain drink your vino. Though lacking a full menu, there's a nice array of cheese, cured meats and crackers to hold you over. Pricing is great, with bottles marked up just $9 over 33's very competitive "take home" prices (it is a wine shop, too), which makes 33 a great place to go big on a specialty bottle. The oft-rotating draft selection, along with the list of bottled brew, highlights great beers both American and imported, many of which are rarely available on tap locally.
Ain't nothing like a good rooftop bar, and 360 is one of the swankest. Occupying the entire top floor of the Hilton at the Ballpark, 360 offers a view that rivals the Arch, without the cramped space of those washing machine-sized trams inside our unmistakable landmark. The owners of 360 spared no expense; the posh interior features a spectacular two-story waterfall, elegant bars both inside and out, and glassed-in VIP seating for the well-heeled. The extravagant menu features high-end and locally-sourced ingredients, and a perfectly curated drink list that will make your mouth water. From the roof deck, check out the nearby Gateway Arch and the Mississippi River churning just underneath, the cityscape to the west and a unique vantage point directly into Busch Stadium.
Located in the spacious, open lobby of the Merchant's Laclede building, which also happens to be home to the boutique, luxurious Hilton hotel, 400 Olive offers diners an upscale casual dining experience. This "urban grille" takes advantage of its location by placing diners in an elevated corner of the hotel's atmospheric charm. Lunch options include pastas, burgers and sandwiches, including a grilled crab cake sandwich and a seared tuna sandwich. Dinner entrees feature a filet, a rib eye and a tuna steak, as well as a maple-glazed pork loin and a macadamia nut-crusted salmon. 400 Olive also prepares an Amber Bock onion soup, with gruyère and provolone cheeses, and a cheesecake, savory not sweet, of smoked trout, served with an onion relish. Coffee and various desserts are also available.
The original 6 North Coffee Company, located in the Central West End neighborhood, (the other is downtown) prides itself in being local and independent. The family-owned and -operated café, which is open Monday through Friday, serves Kaldi's Coffee, another locally owned company. The menu reflects typical coffee-shop fare, with lattes and mochas to drink and salads, soups and sandwiches to eat. 6 North also offers catering and box lunches.
The downtown location of 6 North Café offers a full menu of lunch and breakfast items. Located at 701 Market Street in the Gateway One building, patrons can enter the ground floor café at the corner of Eighth and Chestnut streets. The locally owned 6 North features Kaldi's coffee and loose teas, as well as assorted pastries, bagels and breakfast sandwiches in the morning. Lunch options include hot and cold sandwiches, wraps, salads and daily soups. 6 North also sells fruit, coffee and tea, smoothies, and box lunches catering to downtown offices. Plenty of indoor seating is available offering an upscale coffeehouse ambiance, with additional outdoor tables and chairs along Chestnut Street for fair-weather dining.
Al's Restaurant Just north of the flashy Lumière Place downtown lies Al's Restaurant, which has enjoyed its home along the riverfront for 85 years. The upscale restaurant serves all the perennial favorites, including escargot, lobster tails and steak tartar for starters. Al's only serves dinner, which offers a selection of steaks such as steak Diane and filet mignon or the "Italian Dinner" -- a filet alongside veal parmigiano. Not in the mood for steak? No problem: Al's also offers a variety of veal preparations, pork chops seafood and duck breast among their entrees. Reservations are recommended.
CLOSED - The Annie Malone Children & Family Service Center first opened its doors in 1888 with the responsibility of caring for local African American and neglected children. Today, their mission remains the same, and to help them better serve the community, Annie Malone's has opened a full-service breakfast and lunch café on the seventh floor of city hall on Market Street downtown. Annie M. features breakfast items until 10 a.m., such as bacon- or sausage-and-egg biscuits, scrambled eggs, bagels, donuts and made-to-order omelets. For lunch, patrons can enjoy items including chicken wings, burgers, fish sandwiches and a chicken Caesar salad. As a part of Annie Malone's services, a portion of the café's proceeds go directly toward the center's cost of operation.
Bohemian meets upper crust when the Bommarito family of five-diamond Tony's fame shakes things up at suppertime. Anthony's Bar extends its power-lunch reputation beyond the dinner hour with appetizers like a pulled pork tamale and entrées like herb-stuffed salmon and a grilled porkchop with roasted tomatoes and potatoes. The menu is brief and reasonably priced, the atmosphere casual -- if frozen in a ´70s time warp. As at Tony's, expect great attention to the food and service (the two restaurants share a kitchen).
