We'll be in St. Louis Wed-Sun with three generations of family (8 people all togehter), staying in Creve Coeur.
I was just looking at the hotel web site (Drury Inn off 270 at Olive Rd), and noticed this list of restaurants:
Bristol's Bar & Grill 1/2 blk
Lion's Choice 1/2 blk
Candicci's 1/2 M
TGI Friday's 1/2 M
Ruby Tuesday 2 M
Macaroni Grill 2 M
Are Bristol's, Lion's Choice, or Candicci's any better/worse than other choices on the list? I would love to be armed with options of comparable distance and price, should a member of our party try to default to the aforementioned hotel recs for a nearby, comfortable meal.
I've got a number of options for dining in the city (Big Sky, Cardwell's, a meal scheduled at LoRusso's, Ted Drewe's, various Vietnamese options on Grand), but I'm curious about other current tips as well.
Also, while I don't anticipate sampling any of St. Louis' local sandwiches (snoot, St. Paul, fried brain), if I happen upon one of the best exemplars of the genre, my hand may be forced. Are there places that produce exceptional versions of these sandwiches?
