Best Caesar Salad in St. Lou?

b

I'm in search of the perfect Caesar salad. By this, I mean the old-style, traditional kind with real Parmesan (imported), big, crusty croutons and anchovies. And, of course, the dressing has to be done right. Any suggestions?

    The tuna caesar at Anthony's Bar is excellent --

      For old fashioned, the best I've had is at Al's @ 1st & Biddle.

        Big Sky i Webster calls it a romaine salad, I believe, but it's done right. I'm also deeply partial to the lunch-only Caesar at Anthony's Bar downtown, which has Italian tuna in it as well as the anchovy-based dressing, but it isn't quite classic.

          I know that Il Vicinio in Clayton serves their Caesar with a couple of anchovy filets across the top.
          I am more partial to their spinach salad.

            the presentation is a bit more stylized than traditional, but the best ceasar I have had in years was at mosaic at the downtown restaurant week last august.
