Second five star restaurant in St Louis is 3 days (along with Bridge Tap and Wine). This is a four star restaurant operating at a five star value. We went for lunch and saw none of the problems other reviewers did, except that it took a minute for a host to bring us to our seats: this is because they have the inner doors to the restaurant and bar closed because of the cold weather outside, and at a slow lunch, they had no one at the host podium. But the host podium area is all glassed in, so they can see you. If they had taken another minute or two, though, I may have taken a point off.
The lunch menu is very reasonably priced only a step, step and half above fast food, and what you get for that is outrageous, both in quality and creativity. The place is decorated nicely, high ceilings, mixture of wood and some modern colors with large high windows to the street. Lunch menu has an $8 half sandwich half salad special that is enough for an acceptable size lunch, add on an appetizer for the $6-$8 range and you're plenty full. The salad was creative and the dressing v tasty. Sandwiches were a small twist on the normal, with creative changes of ingredients. The Lettuce Wraps were v tasty and unusual for the US (though in Asia you'll see something very similar). The fried artichoke hearts were only just good. And the service, possibly because it was a late lunch and wasn't crowded, was above average.
Wow what a great lunch meal for the price, would have gone back the next day if I lived or worked around there.
