Seafood Bday Dinner in STL
Taking my mom out for her bday on Sat, Jan 24th. She wants seafood. Specifically really great scallops.
We moved to STL from the East Coast a few years ago and honestly I haven't really eaten a lot of seafood since I arrived in the Midwest. I assuming it's going to be harder to find. But is that a bad assumption on my part?
I am looking for a place that is nice, but not too fancy. She doesn't want to get too dressed up, meaning anything beyond what you would wear to a nice day at work or drinks after work.
A friend recommended Oceano in Clayton? It looks ok. But I figured I'd throw it out to the board. Any other suggestions?
I hear good things about Wholly Mackeral in the county. I have no idea though if they serve scallops or first hand if they are even "good". I know they have been open, tucked away in the same little Dierbergs center for a long time so they must be doing something right.
