Famous Szechuan Pavilion (8615 Olive Boulevard, University City; 314-685-0888) isn't flashy. It doesn't make any concessions to the tame American palate. It's just an amazing restaurant -- and a one-of-a-kind experience in St. Louis. My review of Famous Szechuan Pavilion is now online.
Also now online is Jennifer Silverberg's slideshow of Famous Szechuan Pavilion.
