Little Country Gentleman
St Louis, MO 63105
Riverfront Times's Description
In the evening, Mike Randolph’s Clayton restaurant transforms itself from the upscale breakfast spot Half & Half to one of the most ambitious entries on the St. Louis dining scene: Little Country Gentleman. Diners must choose a prix-fixe tasting menu: three courses, six courses or the “Grand Tasting Menu,” which can stretch over a dozen dishes (and several hours). Preparations feature creative and often memorably delicious takes on mainly local and seasonal produce (plus scallops, lobster and other non-local seafood). The wine list, overseen by Dan Parseliti, features many lesser-known Old World selections. Little Country Gentleman ain’t cheap, but it can be as exhilarating as any restaurant for miles around.
Tips from foursquare
Ribbons of silky pappardelle coiled under cracked pistachios and tiny, vivid-green mint leaves are simply sauced with lemon and good olive oil. Seductive. (Evan S. Benn)
get the grilled mackerel!
This place is a nice change and def outa the ordinary. Bar master Jeffrey is a true artist. Very different drink menu. #16 is so smooth. 3 course menu is delightful. Aaron is awesome server.
