My wife and I went to St. Louis last year and enjoyed lunches at Iron Barley and Adriana's on the Hill, a dinner at Niche, and a brunch at Brasserie by Niche - but we were without the boy. We're going back for a weekend trip with a more toddler-friendly itinerary this time (planning to hit Grant's Farm and the zoo).
Any ideas for fairly casual/kid-friendly places with great food ? We're staying downtown near the ballpark and going to a game one afternoon (not sure how many innings he'll last!) - but we're comfortable driving around town to other neighborhoods.
One specific question - we went to the Shlafly Bottleworks last time and I'd like to try the Tap Room downtown this time. Is that a fairly low-key place ? Looks like pub food, so I think it would work.
And is there anywhere decent to eat near Grant's Farm, or should we just eat in town before driving out there ?
