My wife and I will be in St Louis for a few days later this month with our kids (8 and 5). We'll be staying at Embassy Suites near Laclede's Landing, but will have a car and don't mind driving. We're looking for recommendations for places we can take the family; they don't necessarily have to be family-focused, but at least reasonably accommodating of kids.
We like places with interesting and ecletic food and good wine lists, and also places that are locally owned offering local specialties. We'd also be interested in suggestions for the best local bbq and good Thai. Thanks.
