The Lobby Lounge pairs contemporary American fare with a repertoire of creative cocktails. From the curious appetizer menu, lemon aioli drenches the crispy calamari (a $14 value), and duck-fat fries relish their harissa dip (a $9 value) more than rubber duckies relish a bubble bath. Stone-ground grits and asiago cheese usher in the New Orleans barbecue shrimp (a $14 value), flatbread pizzas may arrive with toppings such as duck confit, shiitake mushrooms, or asparagus (a $16 value), and the cheese and charcuterie board includes an complementary assortment of meats and artisanal cheeses ($18). Watermelon margaritas wet lips with a coalescence of Don Julio and Watermelon Pucker (a $15 value), and Ritz-Carlton iced tea weaves in the flavor of five different liquors (a $16 value). Apple manhattans combine Crown Royal, Apple Pucker, and cranberry juice into a concoction sweeter than a Care Bear with a pixy-stix addiction (a $13 value).
Lobby Lounge patrons sink into red-leather seats and soak up an elegant décor of wood-paneled walls and chandelier lamps flanking the bar. An in-house sushi bar produces assortment of rolls from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday–Thursday and from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The Lobby Lounge also hosts live music Friday and Saturday evenings from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., Argentine tangos on Sunday nights from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and improvisational gourd carving sessions.
The Grill Restaurant
Brandywine tomato and purple basil. Charred spring onion and chipotle. Natural bacon and porcini mushrooms. These aren't dishes—they're actually some of the house-infused oils critical to the experience at The Grill Restaurant, located within the The Ritz Carlton, St. Louis. The fact that these sound so appetizing only demonstrates how masterful the chefs at this Ritz Carlton restaurant are when it comes to pairing and developing flavors. Whether drizzled over salmon with smoked-tomato coulis or as a luscious finish to a house-made flatbread, they add detail to all of the seasonal produce and premium meats available.
With a casual and elegant design and a roaring fireplace, The Grill's dining room reflects the nature of these dishes. Mahogany-paneled walls and semi-circular leather booths and tables encourage sharing and conversation. The nearby Lobby Lounge invites people to sample fine wines and hand-crafted cocktails and, on Friday and Saturday, to enjoy live music.
