Try Libertine. They have the best food in Clayton and the best staff around town.

Just ate at of the best new ones I've tried in St. Louis. They've only been open a short while and if they continue on the same path, they'll be the best in town. I was totally impressed. We went down to watch the bicycle races in Lafayette Square and normally eat at Ricardo's, which I love. Thought we would try something different and we went to Tripel. They were great. Food was unusual and tasty! Staff and owner were fantastic too!!! This is how you have to run a business.
