Hi all -- I've been reading all the STL posts and drooling, looking forward to our visit in mid-September, but I just noted what might be a fatal flaw in our plans. We're there on a Sunday night......A large group of us is staying at the Hilton Downtown (the one at 400 Olive) and it looks like some of the places we'd like to try are closed on Sundays.
It's a large group (about 50 of us), but we'll be on our own for dinner, and will have about a 2 hour window to find something decent before heading out to an evening event, so traveling out to some of the neighborhoods (where there look to be some amazing options!) isn't really a good option for this largely public transit phobic crowd -- I once tried to get them from Oakland to San Francisco on the BART and it took 40 minutes for them to successfully buy their tickets through the vending machines, so that gives you a sense of how challenging it can be to move them from Point A to Point B!!!!
So walking distance from the Hilton is a must, I'm afraid. It looks like Pi, Bailey's Range, Joe Buck's Tigin's Irish Pub and Caleco's are open on Sundays -- what else am I missing? We don't all need to go to the same place, and some will be fine with grabbing a sandwich or a slice of pizza, while others will want a sit down and a beer.
Thanks so much!
