Three Sixty
This rooftop “hot spot” 400 feet above Downtown boasts “swanky” decor featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls that let you “sit in the clouds” to sip “specialty cocktails” and dine on “delicious”, “diverse” American small plates and entrees; with Busch Stadium next door, it allows a tip-top glimpse of ballgame action, but be sure to check out all 360 degrees of the “magnificent” view.

Pappy’s Smokehouse
“Don’t let the long lines scare you” this “informal” Midtown “standout” where “generous portions” of “remarkable”, “fall-off-the-bone” Memphis-style BBQ at “competitive” prices will have you in “hog heaven”; fair warning: the house-smoked ’cue frequently sells out by midafternoon, and when it's gone, that’s it for the day.

Sidney Street Cafe
Exposed brick, soft lights and “intimate” booths make this Benton Park “treasure” a “romantic” choice where the “outstanding” New American menu is crafted with “artistry”; an “extremely professional” staff creates an experience at once sophisticated and “comfortable” for “special occasions” and “casual” dinners alike.

Blues City Deli 
“Excellent” deli sandwiches, Italian po’ boys and other house “creations” piled high with “savory” ingredients are accompanied by hard-to-find sodas and a “bigger variety of chips than an ’80s cop show” at this “funky” Benton Park “gem”; despite “lines out the door”, a “friendly” team keeps counter service “fast”, while lots of “vintage” memorabilia and frequent live music make the short wait pleasant.
