  • J Greene's Pub

    J Greene's Pub

    In an era of gastropubs and mixologists, J. Greene’s Pub sets itself apart from the pack by being a decidedly untrendy, honest-to-goodness neighborhood bar and grill. Husband and wife owners Jason and Juliet Greene bring their combined total of... More on J Greene's Pub »

  • Pie Oh My

    Pie Oh My

    Lucky folks grow up with a baking-inclined aunt, grandmother or other caring family member to shower them with fresh-from-the-oven home-cooked goodies. For the rest of us, there's Jane Callahan. Like a fairy godmother of pie, she got her start in... More on Pie Oh My »

  • Candicci's Italian Restaurant & Bar

    Candicci's Italian Restaurant & Bar

    If beer and burgers aren't your style, how about wine and pasta? For the past two years, Candicci's in Ballwin has been "slowly trying to educate people in the county of what real Italian food tastes like." With customer favorites like langusto... More on Candicci's Italian Restaurant & Bar »

Bars & Clubs

  • The Heavy Anchor

    The Heavy Anchor

    Known for its penchant to host a rowdy concert or two, The Heavy Anchor is part music venue, part watering hole. A thick wall divides the two halves, so the uninterested can drink in peace or join the fray of wild heathens on the music side. The... More on The Heavy Anchor »

  • Kicker's Corner

    Kicker's Corner

    Don't mind the busily burping aluminum plant across the street or the steel bars on the windows, because Kicker's Corner is not the dicey South Broadway hole-in-the-wall it appears to be. True, it's primarily a laborers' bar, drawing from the... More on Kicker's Corner »

  • Crossbones Bar and Grill

    Crossbones Bar and Grill

    A slick, bad-ass bar on South Broadway, Crossbones is just a little over a year old -- it's still remarkably clean, and the chrome-fronted bar still shines like the glistening exhaust pipe on your hog. You don't have to be a biker to love... More on Crossbones Bar and Grill »

  • The Firebird

    The Firebird

    It's dark. It's hotter than Satan's girlfriend. The low ceiling means all the heat being generated by the crowd is rising -- only to fall and suffocate unwitting and terribly sweaty concert-goers. But there's something primal and viscerally... More on The Firebird »

  • Hessler's Pub & Grill

    Hessler's Pub & Grill

    You don't have to be a Lindbergh High grad to enjoy Hessler's in South County, but it doesn't hurt. The popular reunion spot serves up typical pub grub - T-ravs, burgers, salads, St. Louis-style pizza and wings, which include the choice of either... More on Hessler's Pub & Grill »

  • Go! Gyro! Go!

    Go! Gyro! Go!

  • Chop Shop

    Chop Shop

    Eliott Harris won a following for his work behind the sushi bar at Miso on Meramec in Clayton. Now he has gone solo -- and mobile -- with Chop Shop, serving inventive, overstuffed sushi rolls that you can hold in your hand to eat, like a wrap or... More on Chop Shop »

  • Guerrilla Street Food

    Guerrilla Street Food

    That Guerrilla Street Food is a truck might be the least interesting fact about it. From their mobile kitchen, Brian Hardesty and Joel Crespo serve delicious, inventive Filipino fare of a sort rarely (if ever) seen in St. Louis. The signature... More on Guerrilla Street Food »

  • Julia's Market Cafe

    Julia's Market Cafe

    Julia's Market Café is a little shack of a place in Soulard Market. It's not the kind of joint you'd expect to serve a delicious bloody mary. But they do. They really, really do. We honestly don't know what it is about Julia's bloody mary that... More on Julia's Market Cafe »

  • The Mud House

    The Mud House

    In 2009 the wife-husband team of Casey and Jeremy Miller bought this popular Benton Park spot (then known as the Mississippi Mud House), and with the help of chef Chris Bork, have raised the bar for coffeehouse eats. The fare is casual but not... More on The Mud House »

  • MoKabe's Coffeehouse

    MoKabe's Coffeehouse

    Open till midnight everyday of the week, MoKaBe's is a South Grand mainstay that tends to be crowded throughout the day, and most nights. Their menu provides a variety of choices beyond the standard coffeehouse fare, including salads and small... More on MoKabe's Coffeehouse »

  • Critic Reviews

    • Ryan Skyles was living in Italy when he got the call from Mike Randolph about the Good Pie (6665 Delmar Boulevard, University City, 314-899-9221). "I was working in a hostel in Rome, near the train station, when Mike called. He said he was opening the Good Pie and asked if I wanted a job. At that point, I was homesick and ready to come back. OK, actually I was out of money." The Good Pie pizzaiolo didn't set out to Italy with the intention of learning about pizza. During his year in Rome and Tuscany his experience of classic Italian pies... More on The Good Pie »

    • Molly's in Soulard (816 Geyer Avenue; 314-241-3200) is already known for its Cajun food (fried alligator, anyone?) but new executive chef Bryan Johnson wants to kick things up a notch. An alum of Brasserie by Niche, Broadway Oyster Bar and Central Table Food Hall, Johnson will roll out a new menu May 1. See also: Soulard: A Glutton's Guide to St. Louis' Funnest Neighborhood "Molly's has always had decent food, but we're trying to elevate it," Johnson tells us.
