At The Rice House, owner Kenny Truong fuses Asian cuisine with Midwestern tastes concocting dishes such as crispy philly cheesesteak wontons and St. Louis-style fried rice. Pots of specialty gumbo simmer with turkey and collard greens, and thick slices of texas toast hold together St. Paul sandwiches such as the Angry Bird with chicken, jalapeños, pickles, and onions topped with melting muenster cheese. Patrons can also find quintessential Chinese-American staples such as lo mein, egg foo young, or sweet-and-sour pork.
Husband-and-wife team Koffy and Kike Osun bring the singular flavors of African cuisine from Nigeria, Ghana, and Jamaica to the St. Louis area. The kitchen's chefs craft dishes of jollof rice, fried plantains, fried tilapia, pounded yam, and fried chicken wings with a host of ingredients they import directly from Africa. When the sun drops in the Missouri sky, a DJ sets up shop inside the eatery, spinning afrobeat, kwaito, juju, and soukous beats as patrons show off their best square-dance moves.
Even if pizza isn't your thing—which is unthinkable—the menu at St. Louis Pizza & Wings has something tasty and satisfying to please palates. The kitchen staff prepares 14 signature sandwiches, including an open-faced ham and cheese on garlic bread, and seven traditional pasta dishes for in-house dining or takeout. Double-decker burgers and boneless wings sate cravings for classic pub cuisine, and nine specialty pizzas come with hand-tossed thick crusts or St. Louis–style thin crusts.
The smell of sizzling Mexican dishes drifts through Chimi's Fresh-Mex's stucco walls, where 15 types of meat, seafood, and vegetarian chimichangas partner with rice and beans. Servers pour 21 premium tequilas into flavored margaritas, and pop bottle caps off of domestic and imported Mexican beers. Vibrant murals surround the bar and dining area's booths and tables, and an Old World fountain doles out water and relationship advice.

When founders J. Kim Tucci, Joseph A. Fresta, and John P. Ferrara first opened The Pasta House Co. in 1974, they wanted to elevate pasta to an art form. ?Some artists sculpt, some paint, and some sketch,? they write on the restaurant?s website. ?But, at The Pasta House Co., we create authentic Italian culinary delights.? A few of the locations even have giant, exhibition kitchens so you can watch as pizzas, pastas, and entrees come to life.
Naturally, The Pasta House Co.?s menu revolves around the Italian staple from which it gets its name. There are more than 25 varieties of pasta to choose from, including linguine with chicken livers and the signature lasagna, plus weekday specials such as stuffed manicotti. Meanwhile, the mangia bene menu?which translates to ?eat well? in Italian?showcases the more wholesome side of Italian eating, with dishes low in fat and calories that won?t peer pressure you to break curfew.
