MEET US IN ST. LOUIS
A GUIDE TO THE CITY
We are so happy to have you join us in St. Louis! While you're here, be sure to check out all that the city has to offer. If you have some spare time, St. Louis has lots of fun attractions (quite a few are even free!) and even more awesome dining destinations. We welcome you to eat your way through the weekend (bucket list included here.)
Helpful tip: We have set up hotel room blocks for those that are coming in from out of town (or avoiding driving). Please scroll down to the bottom of this page for more details.
WHAT TO DO
WHERE TO EAT & DRINK
Fine Italian | Town & Country One of our favorites! Signatures include the veal chop or the lasagna, but all pastas are made in house and you won't be disappointed.
Steakhouse | Chesterfield One of our most frequented restaurants! Say hi to the Rooks while you enjoy a fantastic steak (or Kaitlyn's favorite - lamb chops)!
BBQ | Midtown The ultimate STL BBQ restaurant. Swing by early to try the best ribs in the nation before they sell out.
Casual Italian | Clayton Authentic fresh pastas and wood-fired pizzas offered in a casual environment by chef Gerard Craft
American | Delmar Loop If you know Kaitlyn, you know she has an obsession with Fitz's root beer. Order a frosty mug or float at the restaurant or request a bottle at many places around the city.
French | Clayton Romantic spot with moody red walls and dishes covering all the French classics like lobster bisque and duck confit.
EAT LIKE A LOCAL
St. Louis loves its food. With that, you'll find a few signature foods that either put a spin on a classic or that you just won't find somewhere else. While you're here, get working on this food bucket list, but don't blame us when you crave this back home.
Deep-fried ravioli are a St. Louis classic. Find these all over the city, especially at Italian or pizza restaurants - try the Hill for some options. Imo's also delivers!I
STL STYLE PIZZA
Cracker-thin crust, edge-to-edge toppings, exceptionally gooey Provel cheese, and square slices define STL pizza. Imo's is a classic with a variety of locations (and delivery).
STL STYLE BBQ
St. Louis offers some of the best BBQ in the country, particularly known for pork - try the baby-back ribs or a pork steak. We recommend Pappy's, Dalie's, or Surgarfire.
GOOEY BUTTER CAKE
The ultimate happy accident. Gooey butter is a version of yellow cake that separates into a crust and namesake gooey layer. Local favorites: Gooey Louie's & Park Ave Coffee.
Vanilla custard with mixed toppings served in a cup - so cold you should be able to turn it upside down. Ted Drewe's is the old classic but Silky's is Kaitlyn's favorite.
Been out late? Patties topped with eggs and hash browns are covered with chili, American cheese and onions and served at diners across the city. Try Courtesy Diner.
