St. Louis: Squires and The chocolate Bar

Went to Squires the other night. Down in Lafayette Square. Interesting looking place. I ordered a caesar salad. It was excellent. About $8-. We split the potato pancake. Very good too, although I never met a potato I didn't like. I had the pork tenderloin. The waiter asked how I would like it cooked and I said medium so they wouldn't dry it out. It came out medium rare. I was a little freaked out about it although I'm sure trichinosis is more rare than the pork was. Although I'm an adventurous eater I don't think I'm ready for pork sushi. It was served over mashed potatoes with a thin slice of some cheese on it. I would of preferred some sort of sauce or reduction to go along with the spuds. A thin slice of cheese on top of meat is better on a thing called a cheeseburger. Even if the pork were cooked more it was still a little uninteresting. The pork tenderloin at Big Sky in Webster is better. Had some other tasteless sides I don't remember. My wife got the halibut. I think it was about $25-. It had a peach blueberry salsa. Not too bad. She liked it. I guess the fish is the thing to get. Othe people I've talked to say they loved the fish. I would of ordered pasta too but didn't see anything that made me want to. My friend got the chicken which he didn't particularly like. Seemed on the dry side. He left half of it. Service was good. With 4 lemonades the bill with tip came to $160-. Not a cheap dinner. After this we went about a block away to a great chocolate place and had excellent hot chocolate. It's called "The Chocolate Bar". My friends wife asked for hers to be made with skim milk and they said they only used whole milk. My kind of place. Chocolate milk was topped with marshmallows. A very rich, great flavor, cup of chocolate. Delicious chocolate aftertaste. They had other deserts and coffee drinks too which were centered around chocolate. Two tables in the front is where I would sit if they are available and then about 10 tables in back. I highly recommend this place.
