Best Restaurant Neighborhood

Benton Park

Benton Park is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and named after St. Louis' second oldest park. Its tree-lined streets are full of stately brick homes and peppered with a cornucopia of restaurants and bars. There's a little something for everyone here. Breakfast and lunch is a busy time in the neighborhood with loyal customers from all over the city stopping by Blues City Deli, Benton Park Cafe, the Mud House and Shameless Grounds. The much-heralded Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co. just opened in August. Notable dining options include Sidney Street Cafe, Frazer's, Ernesto's Wine Bar and Jax Café. And there are a few unique treats, as well — Brazilian fare at Yemanja Brasil Restaurante, dinner theater at the Lemp Mansion Restaurant & Inn, and don't forget to grab some of St. Louis' most famous pretzels from Gus'.
