Inside the St. Louis Downtown Airport, travelers excitedly bustle about on their way to distant destinations or emerge from vacations rested and ready to return home. The constant stream of action is all part of the experience for diners at Crusoe’s on the Runway, which combines the spectacle of air travel with hearty American meals. Whether they’re traveling or just stopping by for a bite, diners fill their bellies as they overlook two of the three runways from the airport’s east ramp. St. Louis–style pizza, steaks, and pastas satiate hunger pangs, along with comfort food such as Mom’s meatloaf and country-fried steak. As they watch Airbus A320 jetliners and lightweight Boeing 757 aircrafts launch into the sky and gently touch down on the runway from their tables, guests can hold up score cards to judge the pilots’ form.
Irish pubs are renowned for putting Guinness on a pedestal, but Dublin?s Pass Irish Pub takes that adoration to a whole new level. Virtually every libation on the pub?s drink menu features the stout mixed with other bar favorites, including Jameson, Coca-Cola, and champagne. Guinness even makes its way into the kitchen, where it spikes the buffalo sauce that coats chicken wings and the cheese sauce that accompanies fries cut by hand and the occasional Jedi mind trick. Not everything, however, comes soaked in Guinness?fried bread pudding, for instance, arrives crowned with a warm caramel drizzle. To accompany such hearty Irish feasts, Dublin?s Pass hosts trivia every Monday, live music on weekends, and musicians strumming traditional Irish tunes every Wednesday at the Southside location.
The Copper Kettle?s menu is a throwback to simpler times. Country-fried steak, fried chicken, and beef pot roast are just three of the kitchen?s dinner specialties. Each comes with macaroni and cheese or potatoes, plus a trip to the salad bar. If they still have room, diners can finish the meal with one of six homemade pies, in daily rotating flavors such as apple, lemon, and sugar-free banana cr?me. Breakfast?from biscuits and gravy to fluffy flapjacks?is served morning or night. The Copper Kettle also has a kid?s menu, featuring chicken strips and grilled cheese to keep tykes from stealing bites off their parent?s plates or chewing off their own arm.
At Chappell's Restaurant & Sports Museum, patrons feast on buffalo wings and burgers just a few feet from Muhammed Ali's signed boxing gloves?just one reason USA Today recently named it one of the top 10 sports bars in the nation. Football helmets, jerseys, and pennants hang from the ceiling, and nearly every inch of wall space and server forehead is decked out with autographed memorabilia, team pennants, and trophies. The collection?which boasts more than 10,000 pieces?earned owner Jim Chappell a spot in the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. The diverse menu contends for attention with such entrees as half-pound burgers and Cajun-blackened chicken. For a lighter alternative, diners can choose a house-made salad topped with grilled chicken, or fresh tilapia topped with a sweet orange-pineapple sauce.
Van Goghz, a martini bar and bistro that one St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer called “a hidden gem”, is known for its trendy ambience and for cocktails such as the pomegranate cheesecake martini. Diners can pair sips of mixed drinks or wine with bites of bacon-wrapped steak, burgers topped with fried onion petals and whiskey sauce, or vegetarian specialties like the grilled portobello sandwich with spinach, artichokes, sunflower seeds, and Italian cheeses.
