612 Kitchen and Cocktails
I went to 612 last night with a group of friends and was truly impressed with the experience. The restaurant itself is very pleasing on the eyes, it has a level of class that I wasn't expecting when I stepped in that immediately let me know that I was in for a treat. The atmosphere felt very inviting and cozy even while the decor reflected a finer dining experience. I started off with a glass of their award-winning sangria, which was incredible. It was served in a little mason jar which reflected the Prohibition era theme that was subtle, yet apparent throughout the evening. For my appetizer, I had the pork nachos and they were without exaggerating, the best nachos I've ever had, mostly due to the smoked pork. I can't say enough about those nachos, my whole table devoured them. Next I had the Bugsy Malone, an original drink created by the owner with cucumber lemonade and gin I believe. That was unlike anything I'd ever tried before! The taste of the cucumber was strong with very light citrusy undertones that made for a really special drink. For my meal, I ordered the slider trio (beef, pork, veggie) while my friend ordered the taco trio (beef, pork, veggie). We both split our meals so that we could share everything. That's one really great thing about the menu: everything is designed to be very easily shared so you get to try a little of everything. There are also a decent selection of vegetarian options as well! The food was excellent, especially the veggie taco and pork slider. What really made them special was the sauces, which are all made in-house. The beef slider is topped with a bacon-tomato sauce while the veggie burger had this really great avocado aioli. You can also order any of their sauces separate if you want to dip your fries or something. My last drink was the signature 612 made with grapefruit juice and jalapeños. I will warn you, the grapefruit juice is pretty strong at first, but if you mix it up, the jalapeños give it that spicy kick I was looking for, what's especially cool is that the more you stir it, the spicier it gets, so you actually get to tailor the drink to your taste buds! I don't know that I could drink more than one in an evening, but it's a nice alternative to a Bloody Mary in that it has that spice and tastes almost like a meal in a glass. I was really glad I saved room for desert because the bread pudding was really good. What really sets it over the top is the scoop of fresh in-house made vanilla ice cream, it's optional, though honestly if you get it without, you're doing it wrong. I ended up spending about $50, which I thought was completely reasonable for a 3-course meal with three fine cocktails and an unpretentious classy dining experience. At several points the owner/manager came up to my table and chatted with us about our food and the restaurant. Another really special feature of the menu that I thought was awesome was that they had custom-made mocktails made without alcohol. I love this because it allowed for our designated driver to enjoy the full experience with us. At one point, the mixologist came up to our table and after asking my friend what kind of flavors she enjoys came back with a custom-made nonalcoholic beverage. That level of care and attention is rare to find nowadays and will certainly have me coming back! Five stars! Keep up the excellent work!

I looked up Booster's Cafe after reading about it in St Louis Magazine. As I entered the door I felt like I was back in 1985 in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Why? The owner/managers first opened an American style restaurant there where one could get a real hamburger and fries, pancakes and other food that reminded an American of home. I was elated to find them in St Louis after so many years and the food lived up to my expectations. Gone are the hamburgers and in their place is a breakfast that is out of this world as well as sandwiches, soups and other delights. The carrot-ginger soup was smooth and tangy, although I would have liked a stronger ginger taste, it was devine. I am going back today and taking some of my family because this is a place that deserves lots of business for what it meant to so many Americans abroad and the delightful food they have brought St. Louis! Check it out!

Monarch Private Event Space
I was a first time customer and very impressed. We had a large group and our waiter, Aaron, was marvelous. I had the oysters - and they were far superior than any I've ever had. Aaron suggested a great wine pairing that I instantly fell in love with. I was disappointed in the pear salad. I had hoped to try the fall salad that was described on their website, but it wasn't on the menu. The pear seemed out of season and tasteless but everything else was delicious. I came back for a second visit and this time I tried the Southern Bistro. This menu is very affordable. The gumbo and those boudin balls were very, very tasty. I am becoming a big fan and plan to go again soon.

Altai Mongolian Grill
I had my reservations about this place at first. But it is convenient when I don't feel like cooking and have a craving for stir fry. The reviewer that said that some of the meats were frozen were accurate. But, the final product all depends on how you season it and what sauces you use. They have little cards to give you decent combinations. The cook and staff were friendly and there's a flat screen to watch the game or the news. So I felt like I was at home. I would go back. I wouldn't go out of my way. But if you are close, give it a try.

Kick Ash Vapor
Been over to this place a couple times, GREAT PLACE. If you're looking for more of a lounge than a "shop", this is it. They have a great juice menu, (samples of course) and gear for your rig for sale.And if you're still a cigarette smoker...stop being ridiculous, these things are awesome and WILL get you off cigarettes. Mark Twain said "quitting smoking is easy, I've done it hundreds of times", well, these things changed all that for me. No smell, no stains, and you can VAPE WHERE you want, WHEN you want.

Tripe City
I went in and the food was good. The customer service left much to be desired. I have yet to walk into a business establishment where the person who takes your food order seems irritated that you are there. The prices are a little higher than what I am accustom to paying, however look to support any new black owned business that is brought to my attention. Needless to say I will not be back nor recommend this establishment unless they become a drive thru restaurant or they have better face representing them.

Zia's Restaurant
$15 is around the max for an entree, non-pasta dishes come with a side of pasta (red, white, or olive/butter sauce), and a loaf of bread is free for each table. A nice little atmosphere, but it can be a bit loud if it's crowded. Parking is a bit tough right in front, and the restaurant doesnt seem to be handicap accessible, but there is easy parking within a very short walk. Portions are huge, service is brisk, and the food is simply heavenly. Absolutely superior meals and variety (no pizza though)!

Pole Position Raceway
We held a birthday party at Pole Position for our 10 year old and the kids loved the karts and the staff was very friendly. I even did a race since I didn't want to miss the fun and those karts are the real deal. I could not believe how fast they went and how well they performed. The prices are a bit higher than you would expect for a go-kart, but once you drive, it's worth every penny and you want to come back for more.

My Fiancé & I went to Copia for his birthday on June 10th and it was the most unpleasant experience. Copia is overpriced, the food is fair, the service is definitely below average, and they were out of 2 out of the 3 items I ordered! My expectations for this restaurant was high and i was sadly disappointed. To sum things up: You are paying for a nice ambiance w/ poor service.

Fro's Place
This place is a true gem on south broadway. So many of the other places are more on the dive side - but these guys nailed it. The managers are great and treat you like family, customers are friendly, staff is gorgeous, drinks are solid and it's cheap. Bar area is open and clean. If you visit during the day, the large windows make for a great view and light the place up.

Just a moment...
