The menu reflects both the Italian and the Greek heritage of owners Anthony and Rosario Scarato. The selection tilts toward the former, with numerous pizzas and pastas available, while the Greek board focuses on the cuisine's standbys, such as saganaki (flaming cheese), dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves) and gyros. The pizza is very good: the crust thick, with a slight chew and a teasing sweetness; the sauce lightly applied beneath a blanket of melting mozzarella; the toppings ideally proportioned. The gyro is also good and a great value. A welcoming spot with a wonderfully friendly staff.
Along busy Hampton Avenue, Ari's offers Greek and American fare in a comfortable dining room or on their spacious patio. The menu includes saganaki, hummus and toasted ravioli. Specialties include their gyro sandwich and chicken souvlaki, with American selections such as a BLT and a club sandwich also available. Entrees range from lamb shank to chicken modiga to filet mignon. Ari's rounds out its menu with a few burgers and pastas. On Saturdays and Sundays Ari's also offers a breakfast buffet, complete with an omelet station. The restaurant has a parking lot on the side.
"Turkey coma" takes on a whole new meaning at this Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant that relentlessly tempts. Appetizer platters are resplendent with salt-of-the-earth goodness, while main courses are typically beef or lamb over rice or couscous. While most of Aya Sofia's dishes bear a close-cousin resemblance to other Eurasian delicacies such as spanakopita and gyros, the staff is quite fluent at helping to decipher and navigate the menu as needed.
A neighborhood restaurant with a menu overseen by (very) prominent - and (very) busy - local chef Mike Johnson. Dishes draw inspiration from Mediterranean cuisines, not only European, but also North African and Middle Eastern. Crab cakes are spiced with za'atar and served with a harissa aioli; falafel is served in bite-size "popcorn" form. The menu is dominated by small plates, but there are also sandwiches, soups and flatbread pizzas, as well as a few pasta dishes and traditional entrées. Weather permitting, the patio is a popular seat.
Most coffeehouses pour a good, strong cup of joe. Others have great atmosphere, and a few serve appealing food. Blackberry, a hangout that's popular among Washington University undergrads, delivers all three. Blackberry's espressos and lattes go down smooth and sock you with enough caffeine to keep you wide-eyed as you bang out that overdue lit paper. And you won't have to exist on java alone: Blackberry has a surprisingly extensive menu of Mediterranean and American fare, such as hummus, baba ghanouj, tabbouleh, wraps, pizzas and sandwiches.
This Mediterranean-style restaurant in the bowels of the Renaissance Grand caters almost exclusively to hotel guests, so the kitchen could try to get away with an uninspired menu and lazy preparations. But instead the food is excellent, whether it's a flaky and fatty striped sea bass or a lustful rack of lamb. A great place to eavesdrop on traveling businessmen or take an illicit lover on a date: Nobody you know will be there.
Blink and you'll pass right by this itsy-bitsy storefront restaurant and its down-home delicious Eastern European offerings. Gyros, blintzes, hummus, chicken Kiev -- all the classics of Greek, Armenian and Russian cuisines comprise the menu, as well as curious additions like Armenian dip (kidney beans, bits of fried white onion and sesame seeds, like a refried-bean dip with more integrity) and Ukranian-style goulash, which foregoes Hungary's sour cream and buttery noodles for a light, flavorful herb-based broth. The mother-daughter team running the joint -- Mom owns the place and cooks, daughter waits tables -- may come off as standoffish in that humorless, behind-the-Iron-Curtain way, but don't be intimidated. Besides, the food is imbued with enough love to make up for it.
Foxy's Red Hots has been serving up its Chicago-style dogs for more than 25 years. Beyond hot dogs, Foxy's also offers gyros, Italian beef and Philly cheesesteak. Foxy's affordable prices make this a popular lunch spot for Maryland Heights workers.
