I know there have been some posts on this...relocated from IL from an area, believe it or not, that had excellent BBQ options. Of the bbq places I've been here, Pappy's is the best. There are likely some places in South City that I am missing. Could someone who has been to Fat Toney's recently chime in?
Other pleasant discoveries in Webster Groves, Big Sky Cafe, Nadoz for Sunday brunch at the Coronado in Midtown, Pi on Delmar (and coming soon to 2 more locations) is not to be missed. I also really like St. Louis Coffee Oasis in the CWE for a MEAN gyro, and Newstead Tower Public House in The Grove for nice upscale pub food (though a limited menu).
Other suggestions? I know I need to hit Hodak's and Iron Barley. I've been to some of the Mexican places on Cherokee, to Bailey's Chocolate Bar, Square One, and 1111 Mississippi (not as good as the lovely space), as well as Arcelia's. Need to try Sidney Street too. Done Trattoria Marcella and LoRusso's, as well as Kitchen K. Mind you, this is over a period of visits to the area before I moved!
Any must stops in the CWE?
