Failoni's

Since 1916 the Failoni family has been quietly turning out some of the best food in St. Louis inside this pile of bricks along an industrial stretch of Manchester. What food! A soaring lemon garlic chicken, a to-die-for Sicilian salad and a pan-fried chicken dinner on Tuesday nights that's nothing short of wonderful. On Thursday and Friday nights, Alex Jr. breaks out the karaoke machine and croons spot-on Sinatra covers. If you want to take in that show, you'll need to reserve a table in advance -- and prepare to enjoy one of St. Louis' hidden gems.
