The Veggielante is on a mission to spread the word about places to order good, meatless grub. Check out this week's pick.
Destination: Baileys' Range (920 Olive Street; 314-241-8121)
Cuisine: Burger joint
Overview: In the mood for burgers? Baileys' Range has got you covered, and with more than just the standard veggie burger. And while you're feasting on your veg-tastic burger -- with regular, vegan and gluten-free bun options -- don't forget to try its sides, fries, salads and homemade ice cream.
Highlights: A new addition to the menu, the "Autumn" veggie ($9) is a sweet treat between two buns. A sweet-potato patty is complemented with pecan butter, sage aioli and fried spinach. Though this one isn't gluten-free -- the chef uses a bit of flour to hold it all together -- it is quite delicious, with notes of brown sugar and jalapeno in every bite.
Though a standard veg item, Baileys' Range's veggie burger ($9) is sumptuous. A black-bean burger is loaded with shaved carrots and stacked between two golden buns. Try it with a pretzel bun for $1 more.
The Range also does a mean Match Meat burger, which is great with the PB&J dressings ($11): arugula pesto, house tomato jam, goat cheese and arugula.
