St Louis tasting menu?

Can anybody recommend a good tasting menu in St Louis for a special occasion? Price not a consideration. THe more creative, the better. TIA!
Niche has a 7-course tasting menu for around $60 (wine pairings an extra $30, IIRC), available Tue. - Thur. The courses were all fantastic, from "simple" (butternut squash puree with chantrelle mushrooms) to "creative" (pork belly with bacon ice cream, and two different kinds of polenta).
An American Place has both 6- and 9-course tasting menus. I haven't tried either.
An American Place did a 12 course tasting menu for about 12 of us one time. I just called them up and discussed with them what I was looking for. Over the course of a few conversations we had the details worked out, and everything was great.
I'm sure many restaurants like Harvest, Terrene, Arthur Clay's, King Louie's etc. would accommodate you if you just called and discussed the matter with them.
