St. Louis, Missouri's inner-ring suburb of Clayton is known as not only the seat of St. Louis’s city government but also the spot for shopping, dining, and upscale hotels. A Taste of Clayton food festival is held here annually. Because “St. Louis’s second downtown” is a business hub, the dining atmosphere tends to be a hybrid of upscale and casual, with many restaurants that attract a business crowd. St. Louis barbecue is represented, along with burgers and Black Angus steaks. Visitors may be surprised to find many Italian influences along with a few bistros serving French-style food and more traditionally American pub food choices. The pedestrian-friendly neighborhood also offers sushi, vegetarian fare, and an espresso bar.
