The Tavern Kitchen & Bar showcases Chef Justin Haifley's minimalist approach to exquisite comfort food by offering a unique dining experience with beautiful private dining rooms, an inviting bar and an exhibition style kitchen. Open for dinner 7 nights a week, The Tavern offers something for every palate from fresh market fish and an award winning burger to vegetarian and gluten free items.<br /><br />The Tavern STL is exquisite comfort food with flavors you know artfully reinvented.

Located in the heart of Historic Dublin, Tucci’s beckons those in search of an intimate, yet friendly, dining experience. <br /><br />Tucci’s prides itself on offering the finest and freshest – and organic, when available – local ingredients in a culturally diverse menu. In addition to its chef-driven menu, Tucci’s is known for its outstanding wine program. Boasting more than 250 bottles in their wine inventory, Tucci's also recently added an Enomatic Wine System that allows guests to enjoy 2, 4 or 6-ounce pours of up to 16 different wines typically not available by the glass.<br /><br />Complimenting the elegant, yet comfortable, dining room is the 3,000 square foot patio that Tucci’s guests may enjoy when weather permits.

Our selection of sensational sushi and Japanese cuisine will satisfy every appetite, while our drink menu boasts a list of unique cocktails. With our intimate lounge and exceptional service, Drunken Fish is the ultimate St. Louis hotspot. <br /><br />Achievements:<br />Best Sushi on Alive Magazine’s Hot List People’s Choice (2010, 2013)<br />Favorite Japanese/Sushi in Sauce Magazine Reader’s Choice (2007, 2012, 2013)<br />Favorite Sushi, Happy Hour, and Business Lunch on the RFT Reader’s Choice (2006, 2007, 2008, 2011)

"We love DF at Ballpark Village so we purchased some Groupons with the intention of going there only to find out they weren't accepted at that location. We opted instead for the Central West End location and unfortunately the experience was a let down. The location is great, our server and the manager were excellent but the quality of care put into the food was well below the new location in Ballpark Village. The primary issue that bothered us was that our sashimi and beers were all warm- which is always a little concerning when you are ordering raw fish. The bait and switch Groupon trick was disappointing but would have been easy to overlook had the experience been consistent the BPV location"

"One of my favorite places for a business lunch and the Leawood location did not disappoint. I highly recommend Bristol if you feel like excellently prepared, fresh seafood. You can't go wrong here..."

French influences on this decidedly American fare make for an interesting and creative menu. Small plates and aged steak with award- winning BBQ ribs are just "the tip of the knife," on a menu that changes seasonally, in order to bring the freshest ingredients offered from our local farmers and ranchers. <br><br> We serve more than dinner. Our award - winning business lunch and "best in St. Louis weekend brunch" give you another reason to enjoy the efforts of our highly skilled chefs Leon Crues and Andre Grosz. <br><br> You can expect excellent service, without feeling stuffy, in the warm and inviting main dining room of this 100+ year old building. The exposed brick walls and tin ceilings add to the charm of this restaurant & bar. <br><br> We offer another great feature, people watching, on the most beautiful streetside patio in the Central West End.

"We went for mother's day brunch as we always do and it was very nice. The food was great and it's a cool place. My chief complaint is simply that the server's are not well trained. They are polite and strive to do a good job but they are inefficient and it shows in how long it takes them to do something as simple as refilling drinks. I also didn't like that we were charged extra to refill the kids' juices- considering the cost of the brunch it just seems like that should be included in the price."

"We love Table Three! This is our new favorite and we were once again wowed with the great food, great service and a wonderful experience. We've been dying for Spring to get here so we could dine on the patio and it was well worth the wait- made an already favorite place even better! If you're in Wildwood then you'll want to experience Table Three, if you're not, then you should make the drive- it's definitely worth it! Say hi to Beth and Bob- they love their customers and will make you feel right at home!"

"The Tavern is a top notch restaurant here in StL and one of the best options available if you're looking for a great restaurant in the southwest part of town. The food is inspired and the service impeccable- one of the best places to find fresh caught seafood with several preparation options. For those who just can't decide, they offer multi-entree tasting plates that offer nice portions of several items. We like to dine at the high tops in the bar area but you won't be disappointed regardless of seating preference. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas. <br />Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.
