i am going to St. Louis for the weekend, Friday and Saturday, and was wondering what the food culture has in store? I was looking for suggestions of: a) fine/upscale cuisine b) varying ethnic or unique type restaraunts, from small to any size. nothing is too weird, i prefer it c) where the locals eat? places that serve something unique to St. Louis or i wouldn't be able to have elsewhere etc. d) various foodie related places to visit or hit up, markets or food stores or specialty shops d) bars e) any neighborhoods or areas that would be good for finding these types of places.
many thanks in advance
