One of the reviews on the wall in the restaurant referred to Niche as an "avant restaurant". I wholly agree! "Avant-garde" is a term referencing forward thinking or advanced. Those concepts certainly apply to Niche. I am forever amazed at the culinary delights concocted by the owner and his sous-chefs. The "egg" is a remarakable constant but the ever changing... More

My wife & I don't consider ourselves "foodies". We don't take pictures or our food and post them online. We just enjoy good food, good service and good atmosphere. Went to Niche for our anniversary and had great food & great service in a wonderful restaurant. Would recommend the 4 course tasting menu as it really lets the chefs do... More

I was in town for the weekend and have been wanting to try Niche for a while. I sat at the chef's table overlooking the kitchen. Everyone was so accommodating and offered to answer any questions I had. Sometimes it can be a bit awkward for the restaurant staff to interact with a solo diner, but this was not the... More

Saint Louis is a good but not great restaurant town. Chicago is a great restaurant town. Niche has been rated as Saint Louis' No. 1 restaurant by several food critics. Meanwhile, Spiaggia has been rated as Chicago's No. 1 restaurant, a five-star dining experience. So how do they compare? Having dined at Spiaggia on several occasions, I can honestly declare... More

This restaurant lives in inbetween land which is my reason for 2 stars. I went to Niche with high hopes after seeing the reviews, expecting it to be about the same caliber as a one Michelin star restaurant especially since the prices are one Michelin star prices. The food however, was disappointing considering the price. My boyfriend and I both... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday here while traveling through St. Louis. We chose the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. Each dish was unique, delicious, and beautifully presented. The portion sizes were just right. The service was gracious and friendly. The decor is modern and interesting. It was fun to watch this incredible food being prepared in the open kitchen.... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Niche and it was awesome. We did the 4 course dinner and left fat and happy for sure. My wife even said her hen of the woods dish was the best thing she has eaten in a long time! There is also a cheese biscuit and pickled item appetizer that we agreed could be... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday with a dinner at Niche. What a remarkable place. The atmosphere is inviting, the food is fantastic and the service excellent. There were three of us at the dinner and we ordered the four course. The first course all orders were the same: Spaghetti Squash, Baetje Farms feta, pepitas, oregano. This was a first for... More

We dined at Niche to celebrate my husband's birthday. Neither of us had been there previously, so we didn't know what to expect. We were deliciously surprised. The menu is set up to have 12 dishes, essentially 3 options for each of four courses. Each dish can be ordered a la carte, or for a prix fixe, you can choose... More

Had the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings at the "Chef's Table": a counter in front of the open kitchen. Courses included those listed on the website as of today, but with a few other small but nice items: roasted hen-of-the-woods mushroom with chorizo butter, and a small raw milk cheese course with a camembert produced by one of the...
