Walnut Grill in Ellisville is the first St. Louis location of the Pittsburgh-based boutique chain. The restaurant aims to offer something for everyone, with mixed results. Its menu is humongous — diners can opt for entrees as varied as “Thai Pork Mac n Cheese,” a barbecue chicken flatbread topped with fries, salmon or a gyro. The restaurant is at its best when it sticks to simple ingredients. Its crab cake is a delicious example of this — jumbo lump crabmeat, onions and just a few breadcrumbs make up this excellent dish. The “Chicken n’ Fries” flatbread is another standout. Its thin crust is topped with sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, bacon, three cheeses and crispy french fries. The restaurant offers a full page of appetizers, another of sandwiches and a comprehensive selection of entrees that can be best described as American fare. If you can think of it, you can probably find it as Walnut Grill.
