I will be in St. Louis for three days--first trip--staying at the Renaissance downtown, without a car. Have spent some time reading this board and looking at recommendations but I don't know the geography of the city--would be grateful if you would help me figure out what's realistic in terms of getting there (walk or public transportation or reasonable cab ride) for:
--dinner one night before a baseball game
--great food fancier restaurant dinner out (Farmhaus? Niche?)
--bbq lunch (Pappy's would seem to be the place?)
--a sample of St. Louis Italian--pizza? restaurant on the Hill? does it make most sense to do this the baseball game night?
--will definitely get to Ted Drewe's
--how about an early dinner either near the hotel or near the airport before an evening flight?
--any other suggestions very welcome!
