ChefBurger = D. Cheeseburger and patty melt. Burgers were almost too salty to eat, and the burger and bun tasted like the grill hadn't been cleaned in years. The garlic parsley fries and sweet potato fries were ok, not as good as others I've had. Got a grasshopper shake, barely had any liquor. Not very busy for a Friday night.

Cafe at The Nelson - Watkins Museum, is not open on weekends! We were fooled. The restaurant is open, but had a sad looking buffet.

Aixios - Lunch. Escargot, which were alright = B. Tilapia = D which was not as good as Costco's heat and eat, and chicken crepes; which were tasty, two small crepes - could be a larger portion = B. Pea Soup = D not as good as a canned version. Stick to the filled crepes.

Andre's = A For chocolates, gorgeous deserts. Didn't eat in the cafeteria, they had lasagna.

Halls Dept Store Candy Counter = A. You can get Andres and Christopher Elbows by the piece as well as some gorgeous no name petit fours for 2.50 a piece.

Babycakes = D Big let down. Had red velvet, lemon, orange and chocolate. Not flavorful or at all, you couldn't tell it was lemon, or orange. Red velvet and chocolate are staples which can't be jacked up I don't think.

Le Fou Frog = A to the 10th power. Amuse Bouche -it was pate of a bird, either quail or duck, (I don't remember which) a crouton, a dab of dijionaise and a green vegetable of some sort. Had frog legs for an appetizer, gorgeous presentation in a Phylo bread basket. enough for 2 to share, tasted like chicken. Lobster tails in champagne vanilla sauce; A+ which I will order again and again, so amazing! And the kangaroo loin which was fatty and led to an upset tummy, a little too exotic. For desert we had the floating cloud/island - which I do not recommend; it was some sort of stiff egg white peaks, not very flavorful. They end with truffles, which were better than the desert we ordered!
