Twisted Tree Steakhouse

Anything you might presume about the Twisted Tree based on its location in a Holiday Inn parking lot will get checked at the door, as the fast food joints and chain stores of Sunset Hills give way to a sophisticated bar that could be a million light years away — or at least several miles to the northeast in Clayton. Dim lighting and sleek, backlit finishes illuminate the lounge, packed with would-be patrons waiting upward of two hours for a table. It’s not just hype; Twisted Tree’s food is worth waiting for. The onion rings are famous, the steaks are expertly cooked and the batter-dipped lobster tails are terrific. Even the salads (made tableside to your specifications) are seriously good. The service, too, is impeccable. $$$-$$$$. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Closed Sunday and Monday.)

Dos Reyes Mexican Restaurant
(5912 Hampton Avenue, 314-833-5550)
Formerly known as the One Way Cafe, this place is fantastic no matter what you call it. RFT food critic Cheryl Baehr flipped out over the beef torta. She described it as “like the best pot roast you’ve ever had”, with beef so tender that it falls apart at the mere suggestion of a fork.
