Help need ideas for 50th anniversary party

I am trying to plan a 50th anniversary dinner party and do not live in Chicago. There will be about 20 people and I was thinking of something upscale with possibly a private dining room. We will be staying at the Hyatt so wanted something relatively close by. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

St. Louis Restaurant reccomendations please

Goodness! I haven't been to St. Louis in many years. It has probably been at least ten years.
I moved from the area when I was very young; but, for a long time I would visit every few years. At this point, I really do not feel as if I have any familiaritywith the city.

Maria Lorraine- I think you are right about me and St. Louis's Italian restaurants. Here in Philadelphia we too have an Italian district, South Philly. There are many Americanized Italian restauants here; but, luckily we have a few exceptional Italian restaurants as well (Vetri, Osteria, Melograno, Savalo, etc.).

Ted Drewes is definitley on the list. I wish Busy Bee was as well. It did indeed close probably about 2 years ago. That was when I received the last poppy seed and nut rolls!

Thank you both for your help!

Hi All,

I will be in St. Louis next week for a family wedding. I am looking for a nice place for dinner, not too dressy or formal. We will be staying at the Four Seasons Hotel and a few family members will be coming from the Edwardsville area to meet us.
My husband and I do not eat meat; but, do occassionally eat fish and seafood.

Also, my family was all originally from the Granite City area. I grew up eating nut and poppy seed rolls from the Busy Bee Bakery in Madison,IL. Luckily they shipped very well! However my heart was broken when I heard they closed a few years ago. Does anyone remember this bakery and know of some where else which would be similar?

Thanks!

Best Italian in the City

I would like to mention Melagrano. It is closed for the month of August and is reopening in September. I think it will be around 22nd and Sansom.

I also love Savalo. They have the best ricotta gnochi with a white truffle sauce!!!! I believe they change the sauce in the summer; but, if you ask for it they will make it for you if possible.
