The family is coming out to St. Louis for our biennial trip to spend time with family members over the July 4 weekend. I need some recs and thank you in advance for your responses ...
We will be staying out in Chesterfield but as a true Chowhound, will drive anywhere for the good stuff. Also, dives are ok if not preferred.
First, what are the best breakfast joints?
Next, we've heard a lot of good things about Trattoria Marcella but have yet to go there. Is it still worth going to or are there some other comparable Italian places that top it?
As always, we're going to Busch. I've been underwhelmed by the food there but two years ago I found a guy selling fantastic grilled beef dogs in the upper level out behind left field. Can anyone recommend something yummy at the stadium?
Finally, this is a tough one. We have a tradition of taking the whole family out for dinner during our visits. We're talking about a group of 10 or more comprised largely of senior citizens. Something in the UC/Clayton area would be preferred and chain restaurants are fine as long as they accept reservations.
Thanks again ...
