Circa STL

Circa STL’s menu is a crash course in the greatest hits of St. Louis restaurant history. The French onion soup proves to be a riff on the soup made, yes, famous at Famous Barr. The house salad comes with an anchovy-forward Mayfair dressing, invented in the 1930s at downtown’s Mayfair Hotel. The “Loaded Garlic Bread Sandwich” — toasted garlic bread with ham, Provel and a sprinkling of paprika — is better known to St. Louisans as a “Gerber” sandwich, brought into being by a place called Ruma’s Deli. The “STL Prosperity” sandwich, invented at the Lemp Mansion, manages to incorporate alfredo sauce on top of ham, turkey and provel. Just what your cholesterol needed! Naturally, there’s also St. Louis-style pizza and chicken modiga, all served in a room positively stuffed with local memorabilia. $$. Opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
