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.
Here's a category where our and our readers' picks are both pretty much unimpeachable. The only real loser is whoever gets stuck with the bill. Our pick for "Best Restaurant When Someone Else Pays" is Sidney Street Cafe (2000 Sidney Street Cafe; 314-771-5777). Our readers selected Niche (1831 Sidney Street; 314-773-7755).
Whose cuisine should reign supreme?
