This week, I visit Filomena's Italian Kitchen, a small new restaurant in Glendale. Follow me after the jump for a preview of my review.

I was halfway home from Filomena's Italian Kitchen when my cell phone rang. Traffic was snarled as all of St. Louis rushed home ahead of the impending snowpocalypse, so I answered it. It was the woman who had taken my carryout order at the restaurant, apologizing because she'd forgotten to include my pasta salad. This was no big deal -- the pasta salad cost $3.50, an afterthought to my main order -- but she was sincere in her regret, sounding less like a restaurant employee making a courtesy call than a mother realizing that you headed back to college without your care package and the freshly baked toll-house cookies within.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
