Monday night options in St. Louis

I had my heart set on going to Niche or An American Place for the one night that I would be in St. Louis only to find out that they are both closed on Monday. It would be wonderful if you can recommend a place that's comparable in food. Thanks!

    I think Bobo is open. It's not as upscale, but still nice and they serve liquor. Sorry to everyone who likes Monarch- I don't. The food and service are lame and adding insult to injury, it's expensive. Check out Mosaic, Modesto or Tony's. It's rough to find an independent place open on Monday.

      Iron Barley is open. It was on Diners Driveins and Dives-

          Monarch, along with a new chef, also instituted a nonsmoking policy a short time ago -- very important (and not very common) in St. Louis.

          I think you are going to have a bit of a tough time. I also checked Sidney Street and they are closed.

          Franco is open. I have not been but hear pretty good things.
