The Best Food in St. Louis

Having lived in St. Louis for over 10 years, I’ve developed intimate relationships with specific restaurants and food selections. Thus I present to you my Best of St. Louis list. Bookmark this page if you ever decide to visit St. Louis, and comment below if you disagree or have something to add. I’ve listed these in no particular order. I’ve noted after each restaurant what I order (and how much the whole order costs), which, coincidentally, is what I highly recommend you order. I also mapped all of these restaurants on the map linked at the bottom of the post in case you choose your restaurant by location.
