In general, St. Louis is known for a few tasty (and not so tasty) food items: toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, beer, other beer, Fitz’s root beer, freakishly sticky pizza cheese and Ted Drewes Frozen Custard. There's also plenty of fine dining, microbreweries and a slew of Italian restaurants in the neighborhood known as The Hill. If you're interested in eating your way through St. Louis while you're at the CAR Conference, look no further. We've put together a list of our favorite restaurants around St. Louis. Some are near the hotel and some aren't. The brightest spots in St. Louis, we think, are the neighborhoods so get out there and enjoy them - and grab a bite to eat while you're at it.
