The authenticity of a restaurant, or "what's the ethnicity of your server?"

The Italian resto/pizza joint I go to is owned by an Israeli and the wait-person is Israeli and the cooks are pizza in the city.

Green olive brine

Let's say I finished a couple of bottles of green olives and I saved the jars with the brine in the ice box. Now let's say I really like the large, bleu cheese stuffed olives in the deli of the market I go to, but they are just in the case with NO brine. Do you all think it would be okay to put these olives in the jars I have with the brine in them? The jars with the brine were first opened only a month or two ago.

St. Louis Steakhouse - Downtown - Father and Son!

Im sure you will find a good steak house in the city, but if I were you, I would skip the Rams (did you see the opener in Seattle?) and go to a Cards game instead.

Lake of the Ozarks

The Old Trail House on highway 5 a few miles north of Camdenton has pretty good food and a killer view of the lake at sunset.

German food in St. Louis?

Thanks guys. Yeah, both The Vintage House and Roemer Topf sound like what I've been missing. I just think it's a darn shame that St. Louis County doesn't have/support such restos.

German food in St. Louis?

With the rich German heritage that st, Louis has, where is all of the German food? There used to be a couple of not bad restos and the one I'm thinking of was down on Michigan in sort of a rough neighborhood in south city. The last time I was there, it was in the 60s and I was entertaining my brother-in-law from Atlanta. On the weekends, that oompa band from Colombia, Ill. would come over and play. The idea was to eat a good meal, get half full of beer and form a conga line going out of the door and down the street. Yeah, we were young and stupid, but it sure was a lot of fun and I do remember the food being quite good.

Anyhow, where in the hell is all of the sauerbraten and kraut??????????

Best St. Louis Mo. Ribs - Mom & Pop or Hole in the Wall

If you are going to be near the Kirkwood area, Richard's Ribs are very good. He uses indirect heat and smokes them. It's a tiny place so if you have a crowd, you can always get carry-out.

Richard's Ribs out in Kirkwood has some pretty good BBQ.
Small place....good for carry out.

Best Pizza in St. Louis – WITHIN Parameters

Doesn't anyone on this board like Farrato's pizza besides me?

St Louis--not to be missed

I've never been to the one on Clayton Rd., but have been to the one in Kirkwood on Jefferson at Clay. I agree, the chili rounders are quite good. The last few times I've been there I got their pizza which I thought was pretty good as well. I'm assuming both store are much the same?

Being addressed by servers

What bugs me is when a server refills my water glass and I thank them, quite often the reply is "no problem". What the hell happened to you're welcome?

What to eat with cottage cheese?

Take a mixture of cottage cheese and grape jelly and spoon it across the middle of a Swedish pancake, roll it up like a cigarette and have at it. :>)

Small cities' food specialties

Seems like back in the 70s I ran into several places in Ky. that served BBQed mutton. If I'm remembering righr they were little road side stands where you would expect to get a burger or a hot dog .

STL - Pantera's Pizza (east side also)

Me too....old enough that is.
Haven't been to a Pantera's since the one in Webster shut down years ago. Don't know how "authentic" the one is in O'Fallon, but there is a STL. radio jock that talks about it all of the time.:>)

Hey Dave
The Village Bar is about 5 minutes from you near the corner of Manchester and Ballas. They have great grease burgers and fries.

Or type in
Mike Duffy's Kirkwood, Mo. and check out their menu for their pizza.
They are about 10 minutes from you . Their parking lot is at the corner of Jefferson and Clay in Kirkwood.

Let us know how it goes and good luck with new those knees.
