Downtown St. Louis Lunch

I will be staying in downtown St. Louis for 2 days next week, and will be taking some clients out to lunch. I am looking for great lunch recommendations where price is not an issue. Thanks for your help.

  1. Will you have a car? How much time will you have available? Are these out of town clients or locals? Do you want white table cloth or just great food?

        Maybe Copia Urban Winery one day? 1122 Washington Ave. 63101

        Iron Barley is just a few minutes south of Downtown (55 south to right on Bates, then Right on Virginia)- nice menu, interesting place.

        You may consider asking the clients. They may be Anthony's or Charlie Gitto's type folks or they may prefer grabbing a bite at Syberg's or Crown Candy or even just at the St. Louis Bread Company.

    2. I have been very impressed by the service at 400 Olive; it has a nice menu, and its location in a renovated 19th Century bank lobby makes it an interesting place to dine.

      Anthony's Bar is a nice place for lunch downtown; it is an offshoot of the classiest restaurant in town (Tony's - which does not serve lunch).

      Also, The Clark Street Grill in the Westin across from the baseball stadium is a sleek modern place.

        Eleven Eleven Mississippi (1111 Mississippi), just a bit south and west of downtown in Lafayette Square is always a great bet for lunch
