  • The Jive and Wail
    Every Thursday through Saturday night, two pro piano players sit down at Jive and Wail's two baby grand pianos and proceed to bang out Top 40 hits from a plethora of eras, including time that has not yet come to pass, though these future-songs cannot be heard by present-day ears. Audience participation is not only encouraged but demanded by the dueling pianists—who are not above threatening their audience with atonal jazz if no song requests are forthcoming. Once you've made your request, the bar's high-tech sound system makes sure you won't miss it while refreshing your tipple at the full-service bar.

  • Sushi Ai
    Though Sushi Ai has recently opened its sixth location, it still shows the same dedication to classic Japanese cuisine. Sushi remains the star of the menu, ranging from single pieces of pepper tuna and spicy scallop sushi and sashimi, to delicate hand rolls that mingle crispy salmon skin and cucumber. Standout special rolls include the World Series roll?packed with soft-shell crab tempura, tuna, eel, avocado, tobiko, and tempura chips?whose original recipe was pitched from Japan in 1919. The restaurant also features all-you-can-eat sushi. Rich soups with udon noodles and medleys of seafood or vegetables join Sushi Ai's other cooked entrees, such as chicken fried rice or beef and shrimp saut?ed on a hibachi grill.

  • Copia Restaurant & Wine Garden
    The modern flourishes on Copia's menu are globally-inspired but grounded by an American culinary tradition. Brought to you by chef Zach Fiorimondo and property director Derrick Collquett, dishes such as chilies and champagne-goat-cheese cream take off from Midwestern classics, such as slow-roasted rotisserie chicken, house-smoked trout, and pork-rib chops. Aided by a wine market whose bottles pour into the dining room at retail price, the downtown eatery aims to shuttle city dwellers directly into wine country with 18,000 square feet of exposed brick walls, wood-beam ceilings, and white tablecloths. Elsewhere within the rambling complex, natural light pours into an atrium garden, a glass waterfall neatly partitions off the bar to prevent diners from impulsively ordering every dish and drink they see, and stainless-steel vats age several of Copia's own wines. Much missed after a fire shuttered its initial incarnation, Copia was roundly welcomed back onto the St. Louis scene in 2010: among other praise, St. Louis Magazine called its calamari "as crispy-crunchy delectable as any seafood you?ll find in a New England clam shack" and its smoked ribs "the best upscale version of barbecue in the area."

  • Prime 1000
    When most people think of art, their minds may fill with images of famous paintings or sculptures. But at Prime 1000, diners alight on a different kind of art––one the eatery dubs "the art of steak." With this approach, each dish is painstakingly prepared, with special attention paid to its presentation, which may include sprigs of fresh parsley or the autograph of da Vinci across a T-bone. Steaks are carefully selected for their flavor and tenderness, whether they hail from Australia or the nearby grassy fields of Missouri.

  • Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood
    "For many Cardinals fans, Mike Shannon has become as much a part of Cardinals baseball as the 'Birds on the Bat,'" Cardinals chairman William O. Dewitt, Jr. once said. Shannon played his first Major League game as a Cardinal in 1962, and took the field as part of three World Series teams. And he's stayed part of the organization for more than 50 years, moving from the dugout to the broadcasting booth, and becoming an Emmy-winning sportscaster in the process. Today, Mike Shannon continues to celebrate his Cardinals legacy at his eponymous sports bar. Visitors are greeted at the entry by a trophy case stocked with awards from Shannon's personal collection, illuminated by repurposed gym lights. On another wall, more than 500 baseballs bear the autographs of greats including Ted Williams, Stan Musial, and Mickey Mantle. The Grill is far from a kitschy sports bar, however?in one room, guests sip pisco sours at a gleaming zinc bar set against walls the hue of a night-game sky; in another, they cut into steak oscar at lamplit tables in stately leather booths. Though the menu does have an upscale slant?featuring classic dishes such as roast chicken with brussels sprouts and seared jumbo scallops?there's burgers and fries, too, which diners dig into as they watch the game on one of the 18 flat-screen TVs. Outside, they can sip beers around the firepit or their neediest friend on a patio that overlooks the Park at Plum Creek.

  • The Over/Under Bar and Grill
    The Over/Under Bar & Grill is only a few blocks from the stadiums where the Cardinals, Rams, and Blues play. Being located within a stone's throw of these sporting meccas is appropriate, since the bar screens the night's biggest games on 37 large-screen LCD televisions. It even shows major events outside, where a 120-inch screen helps illuminate an outdoor patio. This atmosphere alone would've been enough to earn The Over/Under the honor of the Riverfront Times' best sports bar of 2010. But the paper lauded much more than the TVs and games, going on to gush about the spot's "impressive lineup of microbrews" and "great food." The chefs achieve this greatness by reinventing American classics with gourmet ingredients. For example, they smother their waffle fries in housemade gorgonzola sauce, create half-pound burgers with wagyu beef, and dress up drab BLTs with applewood-smoked salmon. St. Louis Magazine and Sauce Magazine have also taken notice, calling The Over/Under one of the best places to watch a game in St. Louis.
