  • The crab cake at BrickTop's Restaurant in Plaza Frontenac

This week, I visit BrickTop's Restaurant (1701 South Lindbergh Boulevard; Frontenac; 314-567-6300), the small, upscale chain that opened its first area location at Plaza Frontenac late last year. Page through for a sneak preview of my review.

On Cinco de Mayo, many servers at BrickTop's Restaurant wore sombreros. Now, BrickTop's isn't a Mexican restaurant -- the only south-of-the-border dish on its menu is guacamole (fish tacos, too, if you grade on a curve) -- but that's OK. The six-month-old restaurant outside swanky Plaza Frontenac is so bloodlessly efficient that until I saw the sombreros, I feared the servers were androids programmed to self- destruct if they showed the slightest hint of personality.

Visit Gut Check Wednesday to read my review of BrickTop's and view Jennifer Silverberg's slideshow of the restaurant.
