In 1990 there was a resturant in the Central West end of St. Louis on Union Blvd in the Westmoreland on the Park apartment building called American Brasserie. Chef Bernard was the owner/chef, and had great everything, including a "bottomless" chocolate mousse desert that had so much Grand Marnier in it that my wife and I could get buzzed just from eating it. It sadly closed.
Is Bernard still in the St. Louis area? Is he currently running a different restraunt? I will be in St. Louis on Sunday night, and while I do have some options from the old days, I would like to make note of him for my next trip.
