Recommended by our docent at the cathedral, we loved this neighborhood and its choices of cafés and restaurants. Taste and its next-door-neighbor brasserie both have indoor and outside seating - we opted to be inside as it was a very warm evening. As we walked in, a server walked by with a plank/platter holding three slices of earthy-looking bread piled high with fresh roasted corn, tomatoes, a corn ricotta mixture and cherry tomatoes. There may have been other ingredients but I had to have it...and it was delicious! My husband opted for the bowl of fresh pasta (al dente, almost like spaetzle) with scallops and mussels, like a cioppino. We ordered a glass of white and red on the advice of our server and each complemented one of the dishes. A perfect light supper.

Came for a cocktail after dinner. Great late night vibe and the decor and seating arrangements are very interesting. They have some great cocktails (pretty much everything and more). Food menu looked interesting and wished we had time to try it out. We sat upstairs and a communal style table with four other people. Service was personable, but a little slow (maybe just because they were very busy). Also it was a little hot and needed some circulation. Overall a cool little spot.

One of the most, if not the most, expansive drink menus around. Small beer and wine selection. Mixology is the word here. Small plate menu, food is excellent. This is a must try when in the Central West End or anywhere near this area. Atmosphere and service is great too.

We stopped at Taste on a double date for drinks before dinner. The cocktail menu was very long, but I was unsure of a lot of the ingredients listed. I ended up going with our waitresses recommendation and enjoyed it - but it was STRONG! Yowza. We got the spiced almonds as a snack and they were really, really good. Service was nice and the restaurant has a fun atmosphere. I'd go back again!

The food is definitely a wow, although fairly pricey. This is great and creative food for a special night out. It's also a popular St. Louis West End brunch spot, especially for folks sitting at the outside patio. The food at brunch is very good, but I would say the dinners are exceptional. The servers are very helpful, and there is an a casual vibe, even though the food is gourmet and top-notch.
