Review Preview: Everest Café & Bar



Opening a good restaurant is miracle enough. I don't mean a four-star temple of haute cuisine or a bauble of glass and light the trend-humpers will pack for six months and then forget as quickly as they did last year's American Idol winner. I mean a comfortable, unpretentious place that serves flavorful food at reasonable prices. It's a miracle. And if that restaurant happens to introduce a somewhat sleepy Midwestern city to an unfamiliar cuisine -- well, that's just gravy.

So when I heard last year that the Nepalese restaurant Everest Café & Bar was leaving its Washington Avenue address for Forest Park Southeast's Grove neighborhood, I was nervous.

This week I visit the new location of Everest Café & Bar. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
