Lunch for a group near America's Center? (St. Louis)

Any suggestions on good places near the America's Center (within walking distance) for a group of 15 people or so, at lunchtime on a Saturday in April? Any type of food is fine, inexpensive to moderately priced; I'm a little concerned about getting that many seats together in a place quiet enough that we can actually hear each other talk, any recommendations would be much appreciated.

  1. This place was always real good. It has been a while since I have been there. It is right around the corner on Broadway. Nice, quiet, moderate priced. (Italian)

      That looks perfect-- except their website indicates they're not open for lunch on Saturdays. :-(

        Bummer sorry. I did not think about the Saturday part. I will check and repost for you.


    2. Here are some suggestioins. I have not been to these places so I cannot vouch for sure. I did check them for Saturday lunch though.




      I will post more as they come.

        Mango looks tasty, and appears to have some sort of group room; it would be nice to hear if anyone's been there.

      2. This place also. Menu looks good and they have a "side room" for groups also.


        1. Wow, thanks very much! I'm very glad to have some options!

            Your very welcome. Glad I could help. I have seen some good comments on Mango-

            <<And, interestingly enough, the Peruvian restaurant(s) Mango have a couple of dishes built on spaghetti with pesto.

            Yes, I had a pesto dish the only time we've been to Mango and it was quite tasty.

            <<Mango (both locations) has excellent ceviche.

            The Ceviche de Pescado is tilapia only, the Ceviche Mixto adds mussels and shrimp. Both are served as appetizers.

            Couple of mixed reviews here but mainly good.



          2. A downtown favorite of mine: a restaurant called "6th And Lucas" on the corner of 6th And Lucas with a website called http://www.6thandlucas.com/

            It serves lunch on Saturdays, and unless there is a sporting event at the nearby Dome, it is typically quiet.
