Fabulous food, inspiring chef

Most nights Niche is for special occasions, but on Mondays there is more rustic comfort food. The menus are posted a few days in advance and there is usually two main courses. They are always good and more simple than normal nights at Niche.

World class food served by world class servers. I cannot say enough about the meal. Each course was excellent. Inventive, out of this world flavor combinations! Our server, Todd, could not have made it any more pleasant. I love what Gerard is trying to do here...making it a truly Missouri restaurant by using ingredients from the area. When anyone comes...

We just had the most amazing experience at Niche in Clayton. This is a perfect spot for a date night, birthday or anniversary dinner. Jordan was our server and he was one of the best servers I've had in STL in years. Honestly! The food was top notch, service was killer, drinks amazing, and the atmosphere is very nice. Try... More

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...

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
