Canyon Café

While the Botanical Garden might house most of the cacti in town, Canyon Café at Plaza Frontenac offers its own share of the American Southwest to St. Louisans, namely in the form of Tex-Mex cuisine. Covered in desert reds and browns, Canyon Café combines the flavors and recipes of Mexico and the western United States with traditional, casual American themes. Appetizers include tortilla soup, Sedona spring rolls with chicken and barbecue sauce, and a Caesar salad with a Southwestern touch of garlic and tortillas. Fish tacos, chicken quesadillas, and enchiladas round out the Mexican menu, while the Southwest side features more modern fare including an adovo rib eye topped with a sauce of smoked peppers and spices and smoked, pecan-encrusted salmon. The menu also features Southwest-inspired pastas, such as the "desert fire" - angel-hair pasta in a jalapeño-cream sauce topped with shrimp, mushrooms, Parmesan and pico de gallo. Canyon Café also features a list of specialty margaritas, including a few "Limit 2" drinks made from premium ingredients and limited to two per customer.
