Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center is the largest hospital in Missouri and the largest private employer in the St. Louis region. An affiliated teaching hospital of Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital has a 1,800 member medical staff with many who are recognized as "Best Doctors in America." They are supported by residents, interns and fellows, in addition to nurses, technicians and other health-care professionals.
Bixby's brings an appreciation for contemporary seasonal, locally oriented cuisine to that old warhorse, the museum café. The lunch menu (available Monday through Sunday) includes simple but excellent entrées (grilled chicken is a standout), sandwiches, salads and appetizers (a trio of small crab cakes is excellent). The Sunday brunch buffet more than makes up for in quality what it might lack in breadth. Included in the brunch price are several items made-to-order in the kitchen, including very good eggs Benedict and a small Belgian waffle.
Forest Park's Boathouse lies in the heart of the park, nestled near the art museum and zoo, making it an easy go-to for weary, hungry park visitors. The patio sits next to Post-Dispatch Lake, where paddle boaters cruise by during the summer/early fall. The menu provides options for all ages, with salads, pizzas, sandwiches and a separate kids' menu. The outdoor bar offers cold beverages for those who are waiting for a table or just want to sit outside and take in the surroundings.
Looking for tennis with a bourgeois vibe at a price the proletariat can afford? Check out the Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park. This place is no free court next to a playground — you know, the one with cracks that kill your backspin and a net that sags way below regulation height. It also isn’t the snobbish country club with v-neck sweaters and tennis whites. Nope, this is where you go if you just want to play tennis, and do so on a pristine court. The center features a snack shop, locker rooms, light pro shop (racquet stringing, grips, etc.), 18 hard courts with lights and one stadium court. There are also private lessons and plenty of tennis programs for adults and children. Fees depend on the season and your age (students and seniors get discounts) but range between $5 and $20 per court. If you like DDTC, look into an annual pass. If you love the center, and find yourself in love, you can even get married there — the big white tent, stadium court and clubhouse are available for events.
As you might expect from the man who brought St. Louis Blueberry Hill and the Pin-Up Bowl, the restaurant inside the Moonrise Hotel features plenty of retro kitsch: paintings of ray guns and rockets, moon- and space-related tchotchkes behind glass. The menu veers toward contemporary bistro cuisine, including steak frites, roasted chicken and trout grilled on a plank. Appetizers include a topnotch (and spicy!) calamari starter in jalapeno-garlic butter and a lobster beignet (basically, lobster in a doughnut). Breakfast and lunch are served daily. The cocktail menu is excellent. For a change, try the Blood & Sand, a Scotch-based creation infused with citrus and herbs. In addition, the rooftop offers unmatched views of “one of the 10 Great Streets in America” (dubbed by the American Planning Association) all the way to the arch underneath a rotating moon, said to be the world’s largest. The newly opened New Moon Room offers an additional all-season indoor/outdoor space with bottle service.
