The Scoop: Cherokee Street welcomes new Mexican restaurant

February 1st 12:02pm, 2012

020112_sieteSt. Louis’ Mexican-food mecca is now home to another south-of-the-border restaurant. Siete Luminarias took over the space vacated by La Vallesana 2, which closed when La Vallesana’s main restaurant completed its expansion and renovations a few months ago.

As reported by George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine, Siete’s owners – brothers Luis and Ramon Gonzales – opened the doors to their new restaurant at 2818 Cherokee St., last month.

Siete Luminarias offers traditional Mexican fare with kitsch and a touch of charm: For instance, as seen here, chips and salsa arrive inside a quirky plastic donkey cart. Prices are a bit higher than other spots on the street, though many items are still under $10 – and portions are hefty. At $11, the Cantina Molcajete – traditional stone bake ware filled with still-sizzling grilled steak, shrimp, chicken, chorizo and cactus – can easily feed two.

The menu expands on Fridays and Saturdays to offer weekends-only fare, including a variety of posoles (Mexican pork-based soups traditionally made with hominy and a slew of spices). While Siete Luminarias doesn’t have a website, you can check out the new eatery on Facebook.

    Thank you for stopping by Siete Luminarias. We really appreciate your business. Our menu has a variety of options that you will not see at any other location on Cherokee St. This is what makes us different. Come taste a piece of Guanajuato, Mexico.
