I liked Señor Pique even before I'd set foot in the place. This was a few years ago, when the Mexican restaurant shared an old house with a barbershop just west of the intersection of Manchester Road and Highway 141. It was the house I liked, one of several along this stretch of Manchester, wonderfully incongruous amid all the West County sprawl. It didn't resemble the typical Mexican restaurant. Really, it didn't look like a restaurant at all.
This week I visit the recently relocated Señor Pique in Ballwin. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
