Carmine's Steak House

The centerpiece of the colorful décor at Carmine's Steak House is the vibrant mural of a carnival in Venice. The homemade toasted ravioli is a favorite appetizer with regular patrons. The 16-ounce veal chop with a port demiglaze is terrific. An equally mouth-watering entree is the filet gorgonzola. When the halibut with rum sauce is available as a special, do not miss it. For dessert try the delicious bread pudding topped with lemon sauce or the Pecan Bourbon Creme Brulee.

Waberi Grocery Store

Waberi Grocery Store is a small, local grocer that caters to the neighborhood and specializes in staples. Its charm is the low prices for goods and the diversity of international spices and products. Many of the people who live in the Cherokee Street Business district have come to St. Louis from all over the world and grocery stores like this one help to maintain family traditions and make the transition to another country a little easier. Due to the diversity of the people who patronize Waberi Grocery Store, there's always an opportunity to meet someone new and swap recipes. -Cathryn D. Blue

Supermercado El Torito

The southern part of St. Louis city boasts of its international appeal: from restaurants and grocery stores to specialty shops, this area of town has something from every culture. Cherokee street is the part of Benton park that heavily represents the Mexican population and Supermercado El Torito is Cherokee street's quintessential supermarket. This market carries all the ingredients needed to make great Mexican dishes; ingredients that cannot be found in chain supermarkets. Besides their large selection of meats, produce, and spices, they also carry souvenirs and clothing. The staff is always very helpful. Many customers outside of the neighborhood who have no experience with Mexican groceries visit often, so the staff has a reputation for being thorough and patient with newcomers. Stop by to see what can be found and after shopping, visit El Torito next door for dinner! -Cathryn D. Blue

The Bug Store, located in the South Garden neighborhood of Tower Grove, is a strangely cool place to find interesting home furnishings. The owners and employees love when newcomers stop by and are amazed by their surroundings. The staff encourages people to walk through the hallways and tunnels, upstairs and downstairs to explore and enjoy all the collectibles. Oh, and they have some stuff about bugs.

Pi Pizzeria

Pi emerged quickly as a St. Louis favorite and has won many awards for their ambiance, staff, and incredible pizza. The atmosphere is laid back, fun, and captures the quintessence of what a pizzeria should be: all about the pizza. Presentation is very important to the chefs. For example, the garlic bread appetizer is served as a loaf of French bread accented by a clove of spreadable roasted garlic and a pad of soft butter. Vegans rejoice. Pi also serves a completely vegan pizza: vegan cheese, vegan thin crust, and even vegan sausage. Menu items are a bit pricey, but a dining experience at Pi is certainly worth the cost.
