Wrapping Up

Before I depart St. Louis for the superior seafood and baseball of Boston, a best of list for those of you looking to explore the city, somewhat off the beaten path!


Best Italian (Quantity over Quality style): Favazza's

Best Sushi: Blue Ocean Sushi

Best Pizza: Blackthorn Pizza

Best 2AM Wings (and only at 2AM!): Pointers

Best Asian: Mai Lee

Best Burger: (For the Price): Bar Louie on Tuesdays


Best Neighborhood Bar: Thurman Grill

Best Atmosphere: The Wine Press

Best Beer Selection: 33

Best Public House: Newstead Public House

Best Piano Bar: The Big Bang

Best Trivia: Mike Duffy's on Wednesdays

And if you haven't spent a summer in St. Louis yet, here are some things not to miss:

Jazz at the Botanical Gardens - Wednesdays
Theater at the Muny - Sit in the free seats in the back
Swimming after work - Doesn't matter where, better if you play water polo
Patio seating - Everytime you eat or drink, make sure you do it right
Music at the History Museum - Tuesdays
Cardinals Games - I recommend the all-inclusive Homer's Landing for quantity
Moishe House St. Louis - Swing by for Shabbat!

And please let me reiterate, if there are two places you need to go in St. Louis, it's the Wine Press, for the incredible beer and wine selection and friendly service, and Thurman Grill for the most Cheers-like atmosphere you will find!

And don't worry, you'll be sure to hear from your faithful correspondent out in the field in Boston! Go Sox!
