Best Alternative to Toasted Ravioli 

Toasted Cannelloni at the Uptown Café

Head to one of the restaurants in the Café Manhattan family -- we're partial to the Uptown Café, a hole-in-the-wall in downtown Clayton -- and taste the appetizer that toasted ravioli longs to be. Though we risk blaspheming a St. Louis staple, toasted cannelloni gives you a lighter pocket for the meat, with no hard, gummy corners. Still, the fried ("toasted" being the polite word for "fried," as we know) hunk of cannelloni contains more meat than the average toasted rav and the combination of that meat, lighter breading and trapped air (which leavens the appetizer) is delightful, especially when you dip it in the marinara and, surprisingly, squeeze the provided lemon wedge over each bite.
