Blood and Sand

Contemporary American | St. Louis, Downtown

We had a great experience overall. Tots and Gnocchi were delicious. The scallops need something added to their dish to justify the price. The halibut was cooked to perfection, but lacked excitement. The butternut squash purée somewhat made up for it. I caution this restaurant to not fall down the hole of over priced small portioned food. People will lose interest despite how good the quality is. I’ve seen it a thousand times. More

Napoli 2
3. Napoli 2
(1518)
$$$$
Italian | Chesterfield, West County

Another super meal at Napoli 2 but the ambiance was lacking. Constant traffic to the patio area was distracting as was the reflectance of sunset bouncing off the door to the patio into the main dining area. There needs to be a better way of ingress/egress or just shutting off the patio service. Food-wise the dinner was great... the pasta special was superb and the veal was both tender and well prepared. Salads were dressed properly and service seemed a bit slow as servers were constantly going in and out to the patio. Wine selection was good and dessert (creme brulet) was very good. Overall great experience but distracting. More
