OK this is awkward, me, Mr. Know-it-all, Mr. I-Have-an-Opinion, has a question:
mom's 80th b-day coming up, probably lunch, she prefers simply (directly?) made food, I say no chains, end of June, start of July. a shaded patio and one with a view would be nice. a winery would be cool (but not in Hermann - no offense but it's sort of a PITA to go there).
geography: Washington to 270-ish, Lindbergh at most, not too far off of 44.
I looked at American Bounty in Washington and that's definitely an idea, so if somebody knows of a comparable place with a stunning terrace on a bluff and a decent menu to suggest I would, well I'd owe ya!
anything on the meramac? too bad the Bridgehead is now a visitor's center.
