They really needed a better restaurant on Del Mar in the Loop ,St.Louis (technically University City) Nico just opened and is a cut above the burger joints and Thai places on this busy street. You can order a decent bottle of wine, quiet atmosphere and have a better meal. Good fish too. Very close to Washington University. Families and couples welcome.

touted as a mediterranean inspired bistro, nico will not disappoint! with a variety of pork, poultry, seafood and pasta dishes, even the most pickiest eaters are sure to find something on the menu. i started with the seared scallop appetizer served over pureed cauliflower and topped with pickled ramps. can i lick my plate? please? next came a spinach salad with roasted tomatoes and house made yogurt cheese. yes, yogurt cheese. delish! bring on the entree...a house made orecchiette served with asparagus, arugula, olives, garlic, capers and asiago. it was so filling but so good, that i couldn't stop myself from cleaning my plate. and dessert?? that's a no brainer...raspberry mousse beignets. while our bill was over $100, it was not surprising and definitely worth every penny. if you are in the loop, make a point of grabbing a bite at nico. you won't be disappointed.
