St. Louis Challenge Results - Babalu's Rocks!

Mal Jun 14, 2000 10:41 AM

In case you're curious, here's how the three-hour layover in St. Louis went. My wife and I rode the Metrolink (in a car full of Cards fans and Boy Scouts, all trying to out-loud each other), followed Pat's terrific directions, and ended up picking Babalu's. We were not disappointed - my laws, this place is good. We shared some appetizers - corn cakes, a daily salmon special, and some brie (you can take the boy out of L.A....), each one just outstanding. We ate our tapas, drank some Schlafly's, and watched couple after couple walk up, read the menu, look uncertain, and head to the Majestic.

It was a great meal and a great time. Pat, Alan, Gabriel - thanks!

    Thanks so much for letting us know! I'm glad you enjoyed Babalu's. And wasn't it easy getting into town? It's rare around here that I have anything helpful to suggest, so you've definitely made my day. And do come back to the site when you can. It's getting bigger and better every day. pat

      Pardon my ignorance, but where is Babalu's? I was thinking Balaban's, especially after the mention of the Majestic.
