A good pub and grill isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip: for $15, you get $35 worth of progressive pub fare and drinks at West End Grill and Pub, which adjoins the Gaslight Theater in the celebrated Gaslight Square section of the Central West End. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
West End Grill and Pub boasts a laid-back neighborhood atmosphere and an extensive selection of upscale pub grub for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. Raise the curtain on the night's curtain-raises with the grill's signature Prince Edward Island mussels steamed in a green curry sauce ($9.95), or frolic through a garden of arugula, blue cheese, pistachios, and caramelized pear tossed in red-wine vinegar and oil ($6.95). To gear up for an epic performance of Shakespeare's hundreds of spec scripts for Major Dad, feast one's heartiest buds of taste on the 16-ounce bone-in pork porterhouse ($15.95)—topped with apple compote and served with braised kale and sweet-potato gnocchi—or the Sonoma steak ($18.95), which comes crowned with blue cheese crumbles and flash-fried leeks atop a bed of horseradish mashed potatoes and zucchini. Bears poorly disguised as restaurant reviewers can delve into the salmon fillet ($14.95), served with turnip cakes and lemon-thyme brussels sprouts. Lengthy intermissions can also be passed with burgers, soups, salads, and the ethereal substance known as al-co-hol, which West End's owners personally conjure from behind the bar each night. Theater-goers are allowed to bring drinks into the Gaslight Theater so that they don't disrupt performances by trying to surreptitiously distill their own moonshine.
West End Grill's full menu is served until midnight Thursday through Saturday, making it convenient for theater buffs who want to restore the calories burned while laughing through the uproarious second half of Death of a Salesman. Join the storied ranks of Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce, the Beat poets, and the Smothers Brothers by hanging out in the Central West End with today's Groupon.
- Though only four months old, it feels like an established neighborhood spot, the sort of place you go on a whim. That it provides more than you might expect from such a restaurant is, in its own way, remarkable. – Ian Froeb, Riverfront Times
- As a neighborhood asset, however, the West End Grill & Pub is a gem...The owners deserve a curtain call or two for setting a lovely scene. – Joe Bonwich, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
- All-in-all, this was a fantastic experience, and the West End is definitely on my list of the city's top hidden gems. – John D., Yelp
