Commentary and Analysis on Businesses and Commercial Real Estate In and Around Downtown St. Louis.
So have you seen the online menu? The prices are outrageous for appetizer and "half entree" portions. It seems like it is going to be a little to hoitey toitey for its own good. From the crowds that have been checking out City Garden, they would do better to have a more family friendly menu and pricing. They should check out the cafe at Union Square in SF, which does very well with sandwiches at a decent cost.http://www.unionsquareshop.com/pages/emporioRulli.html
That's a great point, and why the fire truck that sells pretzels and ice cream seems to be doing such great business there. Emporio Rulli looks fantastic - something like that would be perfect. Something like the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park - http://www.shakeshacknyc.com/ - would probably work well too. It's run by a St. Louisan - Danny Meyer.Of course, if places like 6 North would just stay open, that would be helpful too.
I didn't think the prices were that out of line with the rest of DT. And, if it's tasty, the views and ambiance will be a big draw as well.
Check out the great work from the chefs and you get great food for the price. Way to go to the expert night chefs!
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Terrace View last night. Eating in that gorgeous setting was a treat but it is the high quality of the food that will bring us back. Also, with such reasonable prices, we were able to try six different items--and all were splendid. The Missouri lamb with house-made gnocchi--Yum!
