Ruchi Indian Cuisine

Ruchi is fairly new to the St. Louis food scene and their lunch buffet is very extensive and fairly good. Its proximity to my office makes it a very tempting lunch option! Regardless, come and join us - and take a look at this RFT ad for instructions on how to receive a special DISCOUNT!

Anthony's Bar

Downtown Restaurant Week is Aug. 13 through Aug. 18. Twenty-five restaurants are participating, each with a prix fixe $25 menu. This exciting event only happens once a year, and we went to Top of the Riverfront last year. This year, we're going to Anthony's Bar.

Special DRW Menu

Anthony's serves food from the Tony's kitchen! A bit about Tony's, if I may:

  • It is one of 34 restaurants in North America to get the "coveted AAA five-diamond award" and is known as the best restaurant in St. Louis.
  • In Tony's old space, servers walked up stairs backwards so as not to turn their backs on patrons.
  • Sauces are prepared tableside by one of your many servers.
  • Coat and tie are still required there - are there any other places where that's enforced?
We're not going to Tony's though, so what does this mean for diners at Anthony's? It means that this meal should be outstanding, a great value at $25 for three courses, and casual by comparison to the restaurant from whence the food comes. You'll need to dress to impress, but not so much that you could walk into a wedding or funeral; coat and tie are not required here. Also, I hear that you can use the Tony's complementary valet parking for Anthony's but you may want to check that out.

We have already made a reservation for 20 at 7:30pm. Two of those spots are claimed, leaving 18 seats free. To claim your spot, reply to this message ASAP and let us know how many people will be in your microparty. We have no ability to squeeze people in, so when the remaining 18 spots fill up, sorry, you're out of luck.

Corwin's Bar & Grill

Corwin's serves traditional bar and grill food - expect burgers, sandwiches, some fried favorites, and probably some salad options too. Corwin's used to be across Brentwood from REI, but it recently moved to its new digs in Olivette.
