From its lobby-level outpost in the majestic Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch, 400 Olive serves executive chef Michael Smith's renditions of American and Italian favorites made with locally sourced ingredients. Smith's background growing up on a small-town farm is what informs much of the food he serves—and instilled in him a preference for farm-to-table local ingredients. His other great influence is the time he spent spent studying Italian gastronomy at the Culinary Institute of Florence, which surfaces in the menu's pastas, bruschetta, and eggplant parmigiana. But local favorites don't get short shrift either: St. Louis–style smokehouse ribs give diners an upscale taste of one of the city's most famous dishes. Beyond the menu, the dining room's Greek revival columns and extra-high ceilings ooze elegance and call back to an earlier time when the building—built in 1889—housed a bank.
