  • Ernesto's
    In his 2010 review, Riverfront Times reporter Ian Froeb revealed the origin of Ernesto's Winebar’s distinctive name. Instead of honoring a chef or long-lost relative, the name pays homage to the owners' love for Ernest Hemingway's simplistic style. Chef Stephanie Hay has risen to the challenge, translating the clean complexity of The Sun Also Rises or the masculine energy of Green Hills of Africa into a menu of tapas and hearty entrees. Diverse flavor profiles mimic Papa Hemingway’s wanderlust, corralling global flavors including chili lime, wasabi tobiko, and even red pepper sauce to create festive tapas such as the truffle-infused grilled cheese, which was named the best grilled cheese of 2010 by Riverfront Times. The cheese-and-charcuterie menu details hearty repasts from all corners of the globe, with plates of smoky blue cheese from Oregon and salchichón white pork from Spain joining notes of green peppercorn, tomatillo, and even brown sugar for nods to Latin America and the Mediterranean. Ernesto's has also gone to great lengths to locate wine varietals from France, Germany, and Spain for pairing with large steaks and seafood entrees delicately sautéed in a wide array of wine sauces. Ernesto's butter-hued walls appear to melt in the light from wall sconces and flickering red candles. Above lush hardwood paneling, several framed photographs offer a glimpse of Hemingway at his most virile––aggressively writing at his desk, and using a large steak as a body pillow. For a touch of warmth during fall weather, patrons can also retreat outdoors, where a mammoth brick fireplace casts rich glow on Ernesto's sleek cobblestone patio.

  • Anheuser-Busch
    History repeats itself each day at 3 p.m. in St. Louis. That's when guests gather at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for a special Brewmaster’s Tasting. It's also the time that Anheuser-Busch's brewmasters around the country taste their beer to ensure it stays at the highest quality—and worthy of a legacy stretching back to the St. Louis brewery's founding in 1852. Complimentary tours of the 19th Century brewhouse touch on those and other historic details, including a photo op with the Budweiser Clydesdales, who have been the company's mascot ever since they stomped apart the piece of paper that Prohibition was written on. Guides delve further into the brewing process during beermaster tours, and Anheuser-Busch's signature Beer School teaches a 45-minute crash course in beer styles, pouring, and pairing techniques. Pairing skills are also on full, delicious display at The Biergarten, where chefs match beer with seasonal burgers, sandwiches, and other meals.
