I got some restaurant recommendations from a friend of a co-worker who lives in St. Louis, and thought I'd share:

DOWNTOWN with-in walking distance of Hotel:


Caleco's Bar and Grill is pretty good.  Sort of like a Friday's.  This is with-in easy walking distance of Downtown. Pricing is reasonable.

Mike Shannon's Steak & Seafood has good reputation for great food. Never been there.  Not inexpensive.

Tony's - Pretty famous place.  Never been there.  AAA Four-Diamond Award winner. Mobil Travel Guide Four-Star Award winner. Award-winning wine list. Tableside service. Fine dining at its best. Established 1946. Closed Sun.   Pretty expensive.

With a TAXI ride to the "Hill" for Italian food:  DON'T FORGET THE TOASTED RAVIOLI, A ST. LOUIS THING>>


Cunetto House of Pasta's - Had good meals here.  Not been in a while.  Pricing Reasonable


Mama Campisi's -  Had many good experiences here over past 3-4 years.  ONE not so good last visit 4 months ago (poor service).  Ask for Sammi as server if possible, sit in FRONT room (didn't have Sammi for last visit).  Rather short wait compared to other places on the Hill. 


Zia's on the Hill - Had good meals here. Not been in a while. Pricing Reasonable


Short TAXI ride from downtown.  Worth the trip:


Tucker's Place - Soulard.  (Steakhouse) They have three locations. I eat regularly at South County location. Never had a bad meal here.  Great burgers, steaks, etc.

Just ate at Zia's last night. Good food, but server was awful. Angelo's is directly across from the hotel on the Market street side. Food is good & prices are reasonable.
