What should I eat to get a "Taste of St. Louis"?

Bob, I see you answered your question. I worked with a guy who grew up as a kid working at Nancy's and I ate his pizza. So I shall admit I have not dined at Nancy's. We had our frozen version made by Chesdan's (which at the time was located near 47th & Archer) and when I went there to pick up product they always had me try anything but pizza. Though they did make me, Stuffed Spinach, Sausage, and Mushroom pies, which brings me to the only thing I was not happy about Blackthorn, they did not offer Spinach.
Thanks for the discussion about pizza, I am always looking for different places to go and seems there is decent pizza in the area...

Yes it is a smoking restaurant, but I am a smoker and did not bother me. Kitchen area was open and appeared to be clean. The "stuffed pizza" I had, aside from having some toppings in top as well as inside was pretty much what I had when I was selling frozen stuffed pizzas patterned after, Nancy's. I expected tons of cheese inside the pizza, how else are you going to get a 8 pound pizza from a 12 inch pie?

What should I eat to get a "Taste of St. Louis"?

Tonite, my brother took me to a place on the corner of Spring and Wyoming, it was called Blackthorn. (Wyoming address) We had a Chicage Stuffed Pizza, it was very good. First time I had been there of course and some guy sitting at the bar greeted us and asked if it was our first time. Since it was mine I said, it was but my brother had been there before. He said, place orders over there at the bar. We ordered and were informed there was a 2 hour wait. While we waited, had a couple of beers, played shuffle board, and listened to juke box. Small seating area but I heard someone say that there was a room upstairs and saw plenty of people disappearing throw a door. Busy and steady, I would suggest calling orders in before you head there. I definantly will return! Now to try A'mis.....

Alternative to Cheese on Pizza?

I was recently telling a friend of mine about "white pizza" and she said it sounded great and she would like to try one. She then asked, "How do I make one?" So I proceeded to tell her how I made one... When I got to the cheese she said, "I can not eat cheese?" She is from South Africa and said when she orders a delivery pizza without cheese they put something on it, which she thought was a mix of something white, mayo tasting(???). So I pose the question, What would make a good alternative to cheese on a white pizza or even a regular pizza for that matter?

L'École Culinaire???

I just moved to the city of St Louis MO with the intention of atteing Le'Cole Culinaire. I have toured the schools facilities, observed students in class, dined with one class on their project, and have decided to attend there. But I am curious as to if anyone has heard of Le'Cole Culinaire and if there is any comments good or bad on it? I hope to actually begin classes within the next year.

What should I eat to get a "Taste of St. Louis"?

Oh Gawd!!! St Louis pizza with provelone cheese has got to be the worst. I just moved here to the St. Louis area and had always heard you have to have a St. Louis style pizza, they are the best. I can agree with the previous comment of, "having to choke down a few pieces." Then I had to deal with the after-taste til I got home and brushed my teeth. Can anyone tell me where to get a "good pizza" in St. Louis?

Table for One?

While I will dine alone, I do not like attending a movie alone. But I shall admit that I will not go to nicer dining facilities alone. Typically alone, I will dine at places like Denny's & Steak n Shake. But maybe that is just me, it is not because I do not want people to see me alone. I think, why waste a good atmosphere and good food on just me....
