A Truffle Treat
I’ve heard of truffle pigs and truffle dogs. There was once a Truffle’s Bakery here in St. Louis. But there is also Truffles Restaurant & Butchery—a name not to be overlooked. If you’re heading west on Clayton Road, the upscale restaurant is in the small shopping center across from the fire station.
Sadly, the restaurant is no longer open for lunch, but their splendid menu is available for dinner, everyday from 5p to 8p.
My group of “Women Who Eat Out,” selected Truffles for our monthly soiree. The enclosed patio and spacious indoor seating makes for greater COVID protection. And the parking is easy.
You Can’t Go Wrong
The menu has so many appealing dishes, it’s hard to know which to pick. As they say, you get what you pay for and Truffles, though pricey, delivers first-class goodness in menu and atmosphere.
The service, however, was a little sluggish the night we were there, but the staff was doing its best to keep pace with a full dining room and a private party. We didn’t care; the wait just allowed us more time to visit over a glass of wine.
If you have family or friends in town during the Thanksgiving holiday, this is a great place to show off St. Louis cuisine.
Truffles’ Butchery located next door offers quality seafood, prime meats, homemade deli meats, and fine wines. It’s open everyday from 11a to 7p. Curbside pick up of their sandwiches and daily entrée are shown on their website calendar.
