Best Restaurant for a Power Lunch


In terms of stone-cold requirements for qualification in this category, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay has been spotted at SqWires -- and, occasionally, ambushed by civic-minded customers. But more to the point, as SqWires has become the midday destination of choice for downtown workers looking to throw intimate award luncheons or retirement get-togethers, job-seekers and ladder-climbers would do well to settle into one of the comfy-chic banquettes, dive into the onion soup, bruschetta or meal-size salad and prick up their ears. Polished and modern yet casual, this Lafayette Square eatery does brisk business with the well-to-do at all times of the day and week -- but it's at lunchtime that the socializing counts for more than a kiss and a smile.
