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.
Peppe's Apartment 2 is the latest venture from St. Louis restaurant mainstay Peppe Profeta, who made a name for himself at Gian-Peppe's on the Hill and, most recently, Trattoria Branica. Apartment 2 provides upscale Italian dining in an ornate setting, complete with plenty of chandeliers. Meals are available in appetizer- and entrée-size choices and include ravioli, veal and rotating seafood specials.
Steven Caravelli, formerly executive chef at Hubert Keller's steak house Sleek, now mans the kitchen at Araka. The menu retains a focus on the cuisines of Europe's Mediterranean coast, though Caravelli intends to home in on local produce and sustainable meat and seafood. New dishes include seared diver scallops with pork belly and a quail egg, a "duo" of local beef and a "tartare" made from beets. Standard and vegetarian tasting menus are available.
Cheesecake Factory is a national restaurant chain serving continental American and Italian cuisine. This location is connected to the St. Louis Galleria, with interior and exterior mall entrances.
Cielo, in Laclede's Landing, is several steps above the usual St. Louis restaurant. Literally: The restaurant is on the eighth floor of the Four Seasons hotel, and the view of the Arch from its floor-to-ceiling windows is certainly one of the city's most striking. The food, too, is impressive. The contemporary Italian menu includes housemade pasta with such uncommon touches as veal cheek and oxtail ravioli. Entrees succeed on balance: A grilled Berkshire pork chop is paired with crisp Bosc pair and wilted chicory, a fantastic blend of sweet, savory and bitter. An excellent destination, provided you just hit it big at Lumiere Place next door.
Tim Brennan has supplied the desserts of dozens of area restaurants for nearly two decades. Ten years ago, he moved his operations from an old Soulard church into an almost-as-old Webster Groves storefront that now includes both a retail dessert operation and a small dining area. Cravings is a two-time winner of the prestigious James Beard Baking Award, so save room for dessert -- such as the lime-blueberry bombe or the chocolate-cranberry torte -- or take something home with you.
The West County Center location of Southern California-based Elephant Bar chain serves up an expansive variety of dishes for different tastes. Guests can choose to sit in the large dining room or in the separate bar area. Appetizers include sweet-potato fries and Vietnamese spring rolls, with a large variety of salads, sandwiches and burgers for the main course. Elephant Bar's wok menu features staples such as kung pao chicken and Mongolian beef. While the menu is Asian-influenced, Elephant Grill also dishes out diverse offerings such as chicken Marsala and jambalaya.
More American bar and grill than British pub, Fox and Hound in the Chesterfield Commons is a large chain restaurant and bar with an expansive food-and-drink menu. With daily beer and drink specials, and plenty of big screen TVs, the atmosphere at Fox and Hound is lively. Starters include pot-roast sliders, pretzel dunkers served with spicy queso and horseradish mustard, and wings available in nine different sauces. Soups and salads are available, as well as heavier fare, including burgers, sandwiches and entrées. In addition to the massive combo platter of a half rack of ribs served with a chicken breast, Buffalo wings or chicken tenders, Texas Toast and a side of fries, entrées include Jamaican chicken, chicken-and-poblano pepper enchiladas, and Newcastle Ale-battered fish and chips. Fox and Hound also serves up wood-oven-fired pizzas, featuring specialties such as Buffalo chicken with a spicy blue cheese sauce, a basil pesto sauce topped with chicken and mushrooms, or the option to build your own from a list of toppings. Fox and Hound is also available for private parties.

Curious about Bosnian cuisine but not sure you'll like it? This large, handsome restaurant - the former Bailey Farms Dairy - offers Bosnian fare and also conventional offerings such as fried calamari, toasted ravioli and tortellini. It's hard to resist the "Mixed Grbic Plate," an artery-busting meat sampler featuring utterly delicious cevapi. Imagine the miraculous offspring of a sausage and a beef kabob: That's cevapi. Other hearty entrées include goulash, several different kinds of schnitzel and the yummy sarma (cabbage rolls stuffed with rice and ground beef). The bar menu offers something that you won't find many other places: Romanian wine.
Clever, persuasive New American dishes built on a foundation of classics. For a light meal, order a couple of fanciful appetizers in place of an entrée. If you're in the mood for more substantial fare, try one of the superb game dishes, such as rabbit or pheasant. For a finale, order any sweet thing that's red and ripe -- strawberry shortcake, say, or a pear poached in zinfandel.
Hendel's Old Town Florissant digs in a century-old grocer's storefront have a colorful past, but there's nothing old-fashioned about the food. Try the German potato soup with its zippy hint of vinegar or the smoked shrimp en croute. Other perks include enthusiastic, rosy-cheeked service; a comfy dining room; and outside seating in a serene garden.
