Alastair Nisbet has reinvented his Tower Grove East gastropub to feature rustic American cuisine such as barbecue and chili. Tender and tasty smoked meats include baby-back ribs and St. Louis-cut spare ribs, pulled pork and chicken. The restaurant's four chilis - including one made with the fearsome bhut jolokia chile, possibly the hottest in existence - are available individually or as a sampler. Fans of the original Shaved Duck menu should know that the beloved duck confit and duck-fat frites remain. The beer selection, featuring four revolving draft beers and an extensive selection of American craft brews by the bottle, is one of the city's best.
