Riverfront Times' Description
Owner Sam Kogos is a New Orleans native who owned a restaurant in that city, the Rendon Inn, for fifteen years. Chef Steve Daney, Kogos' cousin, was once executive chef for the mayor of New Orleans. So, yes, Riverbend is as authentic a Creole restaurant (with the occasional Cajun dish, to boot) as you will find in St. Louis. The crawfish Creolie is outstanding; the red beans and rice, available only on Monday, is worth planning your week around. The cochon de lait po' boy, thick with roasted pork, will ascend your list of favorite sandwiches. Save room for bread pudding.
Tips from foursquare
For a real taste of New Orleans, try the shrimp creole, similar to Riverbend's etouffee, but amplified. (Joe Bonwich)
