My family is coming up for a three-day weekend (starting on a Thursday). I'm still pretty new to the city and need some help picking places for dinner (and lunch, but that's not as hard). There will be a total of six people, all of drinking age. My family is pretty adventuresome and not looking for tourist fare. Price isn't too much of an issue (although no $1000 omlets).
I'd like to get at least one can't-find-it-in-Missouri ethnic place: Egyptian or something like that. I've also been meaning to go to Blue Ribbon once.
Where would you go?
