Meglio's-- St Louis/Bridgeton

menton1 Feb 17, 2011 06:47 AM

This place was recently featured on FN's Restaurant:Impossible series. Looks like they did a nice makeover, and, unlike some of the other shows, this owner seems likeable.

Anyone know how they are doing after the makeover?

    Had lunch at Meglio's today. Very very satisfied.

    Excellent tomato basil soup. A hearty fettucine alfredo. Both for 8 bucks.

    Some interesting items on the dinner menu, including a white pizza, which I have only seen on menus in Albany, New York.

      White Pizza is ubiquitous in the Northeast...

        Here it is: A link to their "yelp" page with the inside scoop (ravioli, mignon, tomato soup, etc. receiving high praise; lasagna and service have been criticized). Anyway, I believe this is what you are looking for:

          I guess Yelp has more action than CH in these parts...

            Haha looks that way, merton! Yelp covers every business category though - as opposed to CH which is food, drink only. Thus, mathematically it stands to reason they outrank us.... but by how much I have no idea. Hmm, now you've got me going - wonder what the actual traffic stats are - anyone?

          I really do understand what you're saying. There is one report on that board about the place since hte makeover, but it's pretty general or I would have given you the link to the new thread. I drop by fairly often - the board, not the restaurant - and if I see anything more than what you don't want, I'll give a heads up.

            I have not eaten at this place, so I have no dog in this fight, but this link from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's restaurant forum may give more info.

              Thanks, but the board on the link you provided has absolutely NO info re/ how the restaurant is now faring after the makeover. I don't know if you read the posts...

                Sure. I read it often. The most recent note is today. Just thought you'd like some background. More news as it becomes available.

                  The latest post is about the airport congestion. I was hoping for a report on how the restaurant is succeeding (or not) after one of these FN makeovers...
