Featuring local "farm to table" food using a breadth of farmer in the Missouri and Illinois communities. When asked to define of The Crossing, Owner/Executive Chef Jim Fiala often says that he is a chef that buys locally whenever possible and cooks as any French and/or Italian chef would given the ingredients sourced. Joining Jim is Chef Matt Abeshouse who brings a wealth of passion and expertise in classic French cuisine to the kitchen. Our food is fresh, organic (whenever possible), seasonal and by design very simple. The Crossing stays true to classic techniques and the chefs love showing off their skills and passion for elegant food.

We took a stab at The Crossings because a friend said to. Took another couple and had dinner there. It was a terrific evening with great service, an eclectic menu and food preparation and presentation second to none. A little pricey for a casual evening but we will definitely be back for more special occassions or entertaining out of town... More

Worthwhile stop for foodies in St Louis. My pasta was sublime, the crab cakes fantastic and the service was spot on. Impressive! I would absolutely return.
