Open during lunch and dinner hours only, Almonds' Dixie-tinged menu brings a little soul and a lot of comfort food to Clayton with entrée choices that include smoked trout and pan-fried chicken. The lunch menu allows diners to build their own wood-fired quesadilla or pizza, while the dinner menu offers gumbo, smoked trout and fried chicken, to name a few. Almonds' offers friendly and welcoming service but does recommend reservations.
Some bars are content to offer clean glasses and booze, without gimmicks or an ounce of entertainment. Not so Bar 101; this Soulard joint "gets it all in," to borrow a term from the hip hop playbook. Outside, there's a giant sand volleyball court and about a million square feet of patio space with a large outdoor bar and fire pit. Inside, flat screens blare with in-house adverts and food porn that's bound to make your beer-filled tummy rumble, along with myriad games including basketball and a feat-of-strength boxing game. It's either a mini-Dave and Busters or an adult-friendly Chuck E. Cheese -- only instead of fake gold coins, your prize will be booze. Or maybe a stunning victory on the volleyball court. The menu features traditional bar food (cheese sticks, nachos) alongside unexpected choices (spinach-artichoke Rangoon, battered gator).
In a town with as many blues enthusiasts as St. Louis, the question of which blues club is best can be a topic of spirited discussion. BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups inhabits a historic brick buildings that oozes atmosphere, and it offers a first-rate selection of local and touring performers. BB's features a varied schedule of musical acts, a large year-round seating capacity and full-service kitchen specializing in Cajun and Creole food, in addition to a selection of American bar food.
The Beale on Broadway home to live blues, soul and R&B seven nights a week 'til 3am.
It's sexy-time over at Boogaloo, the Cuban-Cajun-Creole lovechild of restaurateur Mike Johnson and chef Eric Erhard, who can whip their clientele into a frenzy with seductively spicy tapas dishes like steamed mussels in a bath of coconut milk and white sangria or entrées like a luscious ropa vieja or plantain-encrusted tilapia. If that's not enough to get your motor running, try tippling on crisp mojitos or tart caipirinhas at the bar, which is rigged with actual swings to sit upon. An orgy of food, drink and fun.
A true taste of N'awlins awaits you at this party-time Cajun/Creole dive, housed in a 150-year-old historic building in the shadows of Busch Stadium and downtown. Order up a mess of crawfish, fried alligator, jambalaya or gumbo (the house recipe, known as Gumbo Ya Ya, is mixed with shrimp, chicken and andouille sausage), or go for one of the five grinders or five varieties of oysters on the half-shell. The Big Easy ain't just found in the flavors, though: Broadway Oyster Bar is also a great place to see national jazz, blues and zydeco acts seven days a week. Nowhere else in town can you eat gator meat and oysters and hear live music. The regulars know it, and they pack the bar so full it makes you wonder if N'awlins natives aren't coming up here for a slice o' blues, St. Louis-style. Laissez le bon temps rouler, indeed.
Graham's is a convivial neighborhood spot in Kirkwood that caters to indecisive diners. Want Cajun/Creole food? There's red beans and rice, etouffee and gumbo. Want pasta? You've got five to choose from, including pasta jambalaya. Bayou baskets come stuffed with your choice of fried crawfish tails, crab cakes, clam strips, fried oysters or coconut shrimp. Then there's fresh seafood, tavern food (like burgers and sandwiches), barbecue from the smoker out back, grilled steaks and even a children's menu and house-made bread pudding in a spicy rum sauce. Head to Graham's for a low-key-but-fun Friday night, when you want to eat on the cheap and listen to some local music.
In 2008 Gulf Shores Restaurant & Grill took over the space previously occupied by Joey's Seafood in a strip mall along Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur. While the menu remains seafood-heavy, Gulf Shores adds a New Orleans flavor to the items. Appetizers include Cajun okra, alligator and a few classics from closer to home, including toasted ravioli with Cajun spices. Entrées feature jambalaya and oysters along with other pasta and seafood options and sandwiches (yes, they have a po'boy). Gulf Shores also serves up fish and chips with a choice of five different fish. The dinner menu expands on lunch to include a variety of steaks and other specialty items such as the "dump dinner" - a seafood boil featuring shrimp, crab legs, mussels and andouille sausage. Gulf Shores also offers a kids' menu, to-go menu, catering, Sunday brunch and a special Thursday "N'awlins" menu with items including crawfish-and-shrimp étouffée, frog legs, gumbo and beignets for dessert.
