Monday night options in St. Louis

cookingfest Mar 16, 2009 12:25 PM

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 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.

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

      Monarch is high on most people's lists and open-

          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 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.
