A charming deli on the corner of Soulard's lovely, peaceful Pontiac Park. While there are a few "standard" sandwiches -- a meatball sub with Provel and marinara sauce, the "St. Louisan" (mortadella, capocolla, salami, ham and Provel) -- most are a step above basic deli fare. The "Cajun B.L.T." features very thick, smoky bacon, while the baked mortadella sandwich is a surprisingly happy marriage of mortadella, capocolla, Provel and a relish of artichoke, black olive and tomato. Co-owner Mike Risk (a veteran of Trattoria Marcella) researched cheesesteaks on a trip to Philadelphia, and his delightful rendition is as close to the real thing as you can find in St. Louis.
Aggie's Closet caters to the ladies' day out crowd, complete with fine china and lace inside its Victorian dining room. Aggie's menu includes salads, sandwiches and a quiche loaded with veggies. When the weather permits, guests can enjoy their tea party in the garden.
With a nod toward the vintage cafeteria, Applegate's Deli in Brentwood specializes in sandwiches, salads and soups, and also serves up the slow-smoked meats of Dickey's Barbecue Pit. Sandwich options include chicken salad, turkey and swiss, club or a made-to-order veggie, all prepared on wheat bread or in a wrap. Among the daily soups, diners can choose from chicken and rice, broccoli and cheese, chili and others, as well as lobster bisque on Tuesdays and Fridays. Salad options include a chef's salad, with turkey, ham, cranberries and mixed veggies, Southwest chicken and garden salads. Applegate's offers box lunches that include options such as pasta salad, creamy coleslaw and mixed fruit. In addition to the typical lunch items, Applegate's offers a host of breakfast options, such as biscuits and gravy, breakfast croissant sandwiches and a breakfast pizza. The deli also dishes out a number of local dessert favorites, including Jilly's cupcakes and Dad's cookies.
Here you can have a light lunch of excellent hot grilled sandwiches, sip a cappuccino while you study for the LSAT or even blot out a bad day with real-deal absinthe. Located on the edge of Central West End and midtown, the cafe adds a touch of artsy French style to an otherwise industrial stretch. Thanks to the patio and annex, there are always plenty of tables and comfy chairs to occupy everyone from neighborhood SLU students and businesspeople to casual passerby. The friendly staffers take their coffee seriously, but that's just the beginning. Sure, you can caffeinate at Cafe Ventana, but you can also brunch, booze and stave off boredom with trivia, movie nights and live music. On any given night, tables get pushed aside for everything from punk to indie rock -- just a couple of the flavors offered at Cafe Ventana after hours.
The New York deli experience is waiting for you at the corner of DeMun Avenue and Clayton Road. Giant, meaty, overstuffed sandwiches (the pastrami!) are the foundation of any deli worth its salt, and Carl's does not disappoint. There are no frills once you're inside, and you're likely to encounter a diverse clientele from all walks of life sitting around sharing a table. If a heap of thinly sliced meat is not your forte, try the egg salad, or maybe even the Provel sandwich -- there is a vegetarian menu. That being said, it'd be difficult to go and pass on that famed pastrami. Carl's has been around for more than 60 years with no signs of slowing down, so take advantage of the opportunity to visit this staple of the St. Louis deli scene.
