The 10 most anticipated restaurants in St. Louis for 2021


Le Meridien Hotel + The Capital Grille on NYE
Here's a creative pivot to kick off the new year: Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton, which opened in October, is transforming its guest rooms into private dining rooms on New Year's Eve in partnership with The Capital Grille. Dinner for each guest includes a 16-ounce bone-in filet and 6-ounce South African lobster tail, grilled asparagus with lemon mosto, Sam's mashed potatoes, and a dessert platter including flourless chocolate espresso cake and cheesecake with seasonal berries. Guests can book for dinner only ($265 for the meal in a private room) or turn it into an overnight stay (packages starting at $349). The overnight package can be purchased online with the promo code Z89, which also includes overnight parking, an in-room movie, and wifi. The guest room dinner can be booked through The Capital Grille by calling 314-725-0930.

Shake It Up
It took us a minute to figure out why so many cars were queuing up at Chick-fil-A. So we got in line, ordered our usual Spicy Deluxe, and asked. As it was a few days prior to Christmas, the seasonal shake was experiencing typical peak demand, we were told, and "everybody is getting one." Devotees of the handspun Peppermint Chip Milkshake wax lovingly about its perfect texture, how the bits of peppermint candies and chocolate chips never seem to get stuck in the bright red straw, not to mention that dollop of whipped cream and cherry. The indulgence is available "through the holidays," which means it will melt away sometime in January.

Overly Critical Armchair Reviewers
Since many restaurants are still treading water, now is not the time to be particularly critical in crowdsourced forums, especially considering it takes a lot of four- and five-star reviews to overcome the effects of a single one-star bash. Instead, convey any dissatisfaction directly to management. Chances are that more change will come about as a result of that exchange than from a penned public comment.
