The upscale national seafood chain finally arrives in St. Louis. Known for its "Fresh List" that's shipped to the restaurant twice a day, McCormick & Schmick's offers a variety of seafood dishes unmatched at most area restaurants. The menu changes daily, sometimes more than once, but you'll generally find a range of oysters on the half-shell, scallops, lobster, salmon, catfish and crab cakes. In season, Alaskan halibut is a fine choice. Preparations and presentations are devoutly old-school: Expect sides like mashed potatoes and wild rice, and there is a dessert tray at meal's end.
