Review Preview: Tip Top Food and Spirits



Tip Top opened late last year, but it looks and feels lived-in. In the building's roughly 120-year history, it has been home to everything from an auto-repair shop to, most recently, the restaurant Lagniappe's. Being a simple bar and grill suits it. The small dining room is simply adorned, with the specials written on a chalkboard and a single TV, neither flat-screen nor high-def, above the bar. The most distinctive touch is the wall clock behind the bar, which features Tip Top spelled in neon letters.

This week I visit Tip Top Food & Spirits, a bar & grill in Soulard. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
