Sage-STL

So I've read nice things about Sage and decided to check it out last night with one of my girlfriends. It's in the old Lynch Street Bistro locale right across from AB. The interior was, as I'd read, quite lovely with kind of a Colorado-lodgey type vibe going on. I can't for the life of me remember what LSB looked like so I can't say for sure, but I'd bet someone sunk some fairly serious bucks into the remodel. Deciding that we are "over the entree," we decided to just graze amongst the appetizers. We ordered the smoked salmon quesadilla which I thought was quite good, although it was presented with capers on the plate, not on the quesadilla itself, making it a little cumbersome to eat. I could not bear the thought of leaving capers (I love 'em) lolling about on the plate so I was forced to kind of pick them up and scatter them on my own quesadilla.

We also chose some sort of spinach/cheese spread which I could have done without. Mainly because when the server plunked it down he gave us the dreaded "now be careful because this plate is hot" spiel. The dippy thing (the appetizer, not the waiter) was no great shakes. We also each had a cup of "famous" Colorado chili, made with flank steak which was quite meaty. I couldn't really see how it could be famous seeing as how the place has been open, what, 6 months. Whatever. It was nice on such an unpleasant weather evening but nothing I would write home about.

My friend bought so I can't really speak to the price, but it didn't seem too expensive. All in all, it was a nice night and I'd go again if I was in the area. But since I live in mid-county, I really wouldn't make a special trip.
