Flying into St Louis next week to visit the Cityy Museum, which my daughter says is unforgettable. Anyway, we will be staying somewhere near there without a car, so need guidance on a couple of cafes and restaurants either close or a subway ride away. that have either good local specialties (not toasted ravioli!) and/ or intense flavors, inventive and skillful cooks. we are not afraid of spice, but don't like formal restaurants.
Many thanks, and will report back
