Iron Barley Staff Pick Menu Slideshow Image

Hours: Mon-Thu 11am-10pm, Fri-Sat 11am-11pm

Price: $

Hoosier food is elevated to haute status at this unassuming South St. Louis outpost, where chef and owner Tom Coghill (previously head kitchen honcho at Frazer's Brown Bag) wields his cast-iron cookware to produce unbelievable creations: oak-roasted pork and chicken, toasted barley, green beans with bacon and onion, barley paella, hot smoked salmon and more. Coghill goes for broke and hits the jackpot with sweet-salty-spicy combos, like the Ballistic Elvis Sammiche (or sandwich, to the unenlightened): American cheese, strawberry preserves, sliced bananas, peanut butter and red pepper flakes. Just-plain-folk service and kitschy-cute Southern d├ęcor round out the experience -- one that's worth having over and over, and cozy outdoor bar and patio make it worth stopping in casually whenever the hunger strikes.
