Located in the spacious, open lobby of the Merchant's Laclede building, which also happens to be home to the boutique, luxurious Hilton hotel, 400 Olive offers diners an upscale casual dining experience. This "urban grille" takes advantage of its location by placing diners in an elevated corner of the hotel's atmospheric charm. Lunch options include pastas, burgers and sandwiches, including a grilled crab cake sandwich and a seared tuna sandwich. Dinner entrees feature a filet, a rib eye and a tuna steak, as well as a maple-glazed pork loin and a macadamia nut-crusted salmon. 400 Olive also prepares an Amber Bock onion soup, with gruyère and provolone cheeses, and a cheesecake, savory not sweet, of smoked trout, served with an onion relish. Coffee and various desserts are also available.

The vast space inside Big Daddy's on the Landing houses more than just one huge party. It also offers pub grub such as potato skins, chicken tenders and "little pieces of heaven" - breaded Monterey-jack cheese sticks. Main courses include sandwiches, salads, wraps and burgers, such as the "Big Mamajama" - a half-pound burger drenched in Maull's barbecue sauce and topped with bacon and cheddar. Big Daddy's also offers specials every night.
Inside the Hyatt Regency at the Arch, the Brewhouse offers a bit of history alongside its beer and grub selection. A board outside alerts diners of each day's beers on tap. The "Owner's Box" is available for private parties. The walls are covered with TVs and photos that celebrate St. Louis sports history. As its name implies, the Brewhouse is serious about beer, with a hefty selection of lagers and ales ranging from Bud Light to Trois Pistoles and plenty in between. If the list overwhelms, opt for the "pick six," and the bartender will choose for you. Chicken strips, toasted ravioli and potato skins, sandwiches and salads, burgers (beef, veggie or turkey) available with two, three or four patties, or, for those who like a challenge, go for the "Tower of Doom" - twelve (yep, twelve) four-ounce patties, a half-pound of bacon, a half-pound of cheese, jalapeños and barbecue sauce. Anyone who can finish this mammoth in 30 minutes or less gets a T-shirt and their burger for free. Other entrees include bangers and mash and fish and chips as well as nightly specials.
The second outpost of Hubert Keller's Burger Bar concept (the original is in Las Vegas) is one of the acclaimed chef's two restaurants in the Lumiere casino complex. Burger Bar offers countless variations on the standard burger, with nearly four dozen different toppings -- from different cheeses, bacons and vegetables to cranberry sauce, marinated anchovies and even foie gras -- to go with several different kinds of beef, as well as bison, turkey and a vegetable patty. "American Kobe" beef is luscious, but expensive. The menu features six "Chef's Burgers" designed by the kitchen, including the $60 Rossini: American Kobe beef with foie gras, shaved black truffle and a Madeira sauce.
Tucked away in a cozy downstairs space on the historic Laclede's Landing, Café Mattino offers a quiet refuge from the 9-to-5 grind. The café offers breakfast items including biscuits and gravy and a veggie burrito. Lunch features a simple selection of sandwiches. Naturally, the highlight of Café Mattino is its selection of mochas, lattes and the like. They also offer fruit smoothies and granitas.
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.
Located on the first floor of the Westin downtown and a stone's throw from Busch Stadium, Clark Street Grill offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Lunch offers a simple selection of salads, sandwiches and pizzas, while dinner brings upscale options such as duck confit-and-pear salad, with entrées including pasta, Chilean sea bass and beef tenderloin. Clark Street Grill also offers a bar menu with appetizers and a small selection of casual fare.
