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.
Alexander's Restaurant, tucked in the back corner of the Sheraton in downtown Clayton, is a spacious hotel dining option. Their menu includes familiar American fare, such as pasta, sandwiches, steaks and fish. Sunday dinner is served in the lounge instead of the main dining room, both located on the main floor of the hotel.
Asia reflects only a sliver of the titular continent's size and cultural variety. Instead it focuses on those countries many might think of when they hear the phrase "Asian cuisine": China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. Sushi is prepared well, though the fish itself is merely good, not outstanding. Entrées lean toward Chinese and Chinese-American dishes like General Tso's chicken; house specialties include Peking duck and an excellent Cornish hen dish. The Cornish hen is one of the few values on a relatively high-priced menu.
Brazikat Brazilian Steak & Seafood House, which occupies a spacious address in Clayton’s Carondelet Plaza development, is a churrascaria, the all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse. More precisely, Brazikat calls itself (and prices itself) like a churrascaria. In fact, the Brazikat experience is no more indicative of Brazilian culture than a bikini wax. The meats, often poorly cut by the “gaucho” servers, taste overwhelmingly of mesquite smoke. As for the seafood, the less said, the better. The "35-item gourmet food bar" is a salad bar. It does not always have 35 items, either — though maybe you’re supposed to count the two containers of croutons separately.
Just west of Ballas Road in Creve Coeur lies upscale seafood restaurant Bristol. Classic dishes such as crab cakes and tuna tartare intermingle with modern takes such as lobster tamales and coconut-green curry mussels on the appetizer menu. At lunch, diners can opt for a "power-lunch combo," which includes a bowl of soup or salad and a smaller selection of the restaurant's entrées, including roasted duck flat bread and sushi rolls. Naturally, the main event at Bristol is the seafood, with a large variety of entrée fish, including catfish, trout, monkfish, swordfish and salmon. For those who aren't fish-friendly, Bristol also offers steaks, a chicken dish and even a vegetarian menu. The restaurant also serves a Sunday brunch buffet and hosts special events.
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.
