Up the Mississippi from New Orleans to St. Louis

Sorry about the hotel question. Please let me know of places to eat along this route.

Up the Mississippi from New Orleans to St. Louis

Planning a road trip from New Orleans, through Natchez, to St. Louis hitting as many small roads and river towns along the way as possible. Any recommendations for places to eat and hotels along the route would be appreciated.

St. Louis recommendations

I was at Terrene a few nights ago (8/25/07) and Dave Owens had his extended family, a big group, out on the patio for dinner. Obviously the separation was quite amicable. He and his wife simply wanted time to spend with their two young children. Hard for people to believe but that's the whole story. He is still very good friends with the ownership and hangs out there a lot. Food is still great.


Terrene is the best restaurant in greater St. Louis as far as I'm concerned. I have eaten there at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. These guys start with the finest, freshest ingredients available and then chef Dave Owens works his magic. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. You simply won't do better in St. Louis.

oceana bistro, clayton, mo

Went to Oceano last night for the first time. Scallops, ahi appetizer, crab cakes were good, bass was overcooked. Food was better that atmosphere which was very formulaic and extremely noisy. Worth a try though. I'll be curious to see opinions.
