Clayton Restaurant Week returns to get you out of your winter restaurant rut

Friday, January 14th, 2011

11411_CRWHaven’t had time to get away for a nice dinner lately? Is there a great restaurant you’ve been hoping to try but can’t justify shelling out the extra cash? Or, as the temperature drops, are you just stuck in a take-out rut? Well, fret not: Clayton Restaurant Week is returning for a little bit of culinary salvation.

Just like last year, diners can show up to several Clayton restaurants from Jan. 24 to 30, to enjoy a three-course meal for just $25. The list of restaurants this year is at 19, with a smorgasbord of cuisines available. Grab shrimp gyoza and the Erik Johnson Roll (filled with crab, cucumber, avocado, cream cheese, tuna, salmon, eel sauce, house-made creamy wasabi sauce and special seasoning) at Tani Sushi Bistro, enjoy lobster bisque and scallop of pork loin Zingara at the legendary Chez Leon or get a taste of Italy with  house-made gnocchi, lamb ragout and lemon-herb ricotta at Luciano’s Trattoria. Salivating yet?

Even better: Sip on a Pearl Vodka cocktail or a glass of Casa Lapostolle wine at a special restaurant week price. Not sure what to with all that cash you’ll be saving? Put it to good use by adding a few bucks to your bill for KidSmart, a charity which provides school supplies and educational resources to thousands of local students each week.

Here’s the full list of restaurants participating this year: Alexander’s, Araka, Bar Napoli, Barcelona, Bar Napoli, Cardwell’s, Chez Leon, J. Buck’s, Jimmy’s On The Park, Luciano’s Trattoria, Mazara, Mosaic Bistro Market, Oceano Bistro, Portabella, Remy’s Kitchen & Wine Bar, Roxanne, Ruth’s Chris, Tani Sushi Bistro, The Crossing and The Grill at The Ritz-Carlton.

With such a great deal available to all hungry St. Louisans, reservations are highly recommended. For more information, or just to drool over the slated menus, click here.

The Ritz’s new menu goes locavore

The Ritz-Carlton has always been a superior spot for celeb sightings, but these days our eyes are on the food at the luxe Clayton hotel. Executive chef Michael Mandato and the most recent addition to his team, executive sous chef Jaco Smith, have rolled out a new menu at The Grill that features simple, fresh ingredients yet innovative taste combinations – at lower prices. Entrées like almond-crusted snapper with beet root risotto paired with an unexpected vanilla bean sauce or roast crimson sea bass with lentils and coriander chutney make the new offerings an epicurean’s delight. Don’t overlook pastry chef Simone Faure’s playful desserts, like the decadent three-layer Candy Bar or her Cookies ’n’ Milk that features deep-fried Oreo cookies paired with a mini Kahlua milkshake served in a shot glass.

What’s more, Mandato and his team have signed on with local food ambassador Andy Ayers of Eat Here St. Louis to bring from-the-farm products to the kitchens at The Ritz, which will be featured on a weekly menu. “We’re excited,” said Mandato. “We couldn’t always tap into that.” What foods are on his wish list? Produce, meats, eggs, cheese, butter “and anything else that can be featured locally.” The Grill is open Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. For reservations, call 314-863-6300.
