As we celebrate the Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis 2012, Gut Check is asking you, dear readers, to settle the disagreements between our picks and our readers' poll.
Our pick for the "Best New Restaurant" is Cleveland-Heath (106 North Main Street, Edwardsville, Illinois; 618-307-4830). The readers' poll winner is Tom Schmidt's Delmar Loop restaurant Nico (6525 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-727-0200).
Whose cuisine should reign supreme?
