Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co.

For his sophomore effort, Sidney Street Café executive chef Kevin Nashan transports St. Louis diners to the East Coast with Peacemaker Lobster & Crab. Nashan transformed the former Niche space in Benton Park into a whitewashed beach shack with the freshest seafood in town. Diners can feast on everything from lobster and crab boils to oyster po’boys to freshly shucked oysters, and peel and eat shrimp. The restaurant’s signature dish is its lobster roll. Served either Connecticut-style, with drawn butter, or Maine-style, with mayonnaise, the shockingly fresh meat is wrapped in a bun that is half brioche, half Texas toast. Meat eaters should not shy away from Peacemaker; its brisket sandwich rivals those served at the town’s best smokehouses. Finish the meal with a whimsical dessert, like freshly baked whoopie pies or snow cones with housemade syrups. Peacemaker is the city’s hottest restaurant, and it lives up to the hype.
