St. Louis Recommendations

I'm traveling to St. Louis for a conference this month. I'll be staying "in the heart of downtown." Any recommendations for me to try out? I'll be traveling with some colleagues but will Saturday afternoon/night to myself and would like to treat myself to a nice meal.

I don't plan to rent a car.

Ruth's Chris downtown is subpar.

Ae few other joints, can't really remember names.
Lombardos for Italian was really good.

Had a steak at Kreis last winter. It was top notch imo. Not sure how close it is to downtown though.

go to "the hill", its the old italian part of town, where yogi berra's from. many choices there, i like rigazzi's. also, if you haven't yet, try st louis style pizza anywhere.

re: St. Louis Recommendations
Inquire at the hotel as to the (Oops) Central West end district which is accessible by the metro or taxi ride, it is small but dense in numbers of good options to choose from. It is a popular location with the locals in an area to the western edge of the city proper. You will have a few recommended spots from the hotel peeps to try. I am brain farting the name of the chef(French guy) that is a bit noted in cooking lore on the national level(tv shows) with his record and he has a place down by the river walking distance from most of the hotels. The Hill district for Italian is to the south of it by about a mile or two, that is in relation to the CWE area of town, not downtown. My bad.

Like another poster mentioned, PI pizza is great. I would definitely recommend going there.

re: St. Louis Recommendations
you can also check out the site for sauce magazine. Its the local foodie publication. Riverfront times website may be able to help as well, but its not food centric.

As far as restaurants go, pi pizzeria has great deep dish and good local craft beers. There is one in the central west end. And as several folks have said, there are plenty good italian places on the hill.

Sauce is a good little read to have if you are a local.

Ted Drew's for frozen custard is a must.
Had Thai place called "King and I" that was really good.
