Riverfront Times' Description

Helmed by executive chef Brian Hardesty of Terrene and Guerrilla Street Food fame, Element serves up hearty rustic American food in a stylish setting. Housed in the renovated City Hospital complex, Element sets a chic tone in its third-floor lounge with its exposed brick, leather couches, outdoor terrace and sweeping views of the city skyline. The second-floor dining room carries forward the vibe and adds the twist of an open kitchen, exposing the work space on three sides so that every table feels like a chef’s table. Hardesty and his team use local ingredients with attention to the flavors of the season. Notable dishes include a pork-belly small plate – so creamy it is almost spreadable – served with tangy blue cheese mousse, plums, French prunes and walnuts. The short-rib large plate is equally decadent, the meat falling apart with the slightest prodding of a fork. Served with a rich sweet potato ale, rutabaga and Swiss chard, the short ribs are tailor-made for a chilly day. The wine list is small but thoughtful, the beer list features local craft selections and the bartenders are up to the challenge of customizing a craft cocktail based on a mood. Element has everything going for it – it’s one of the best restaurants to open in St. Louis in 2013.
