Balaban's Wine Cellar & Tapas Bar
Chesterfield, MO 63017
Riverfront Times' Description
A homage to the late, iconic Central West End restaurant. Owner Steve McIntyre, a long-time owner of the original Balaban's, has fashioned this new edition as a more casual restaurant serving mostly small plates. These include both classic Balaban's dishes - cucumber bisque, beef Wellington - and familiar bistro fare. The best bet might be the flatbread pizza, especially the version with spinach, fontina cheese and caramelized onion. This Balaban's also sells retail wine and offers carryout meals.
Tips from foursquare
Don't be under the age of forty, they will assume you are ignorant and don't tip well. And then, of course you won't because of the service.
I have been coming here since they opened. Never had a bad or even mediocre meal here! You should try the Morel pasta if its on the menu
Don't sit at the bar... Worst. Service. Ever.
get the table by the front desk, then reach up and steal mints.
