Review Preview: Robust



Owner Stanley Browne, a certified sommelier, has curated Robust's list with care, offering an eclectic, if not exhaustive, selection that avoids two common wine-list pitfalls: too many overpriced low-end wines you can find at your local supermarket, and high-end wines like cult California cabernets that are chosen solely for their trophy status.

This week I visit Robust, a new wine bar and café in Webster Groves. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think and to learn about all the food- and drink-related goodies in this week's issue.
