Order: Pepperoni Slice and Garlic Knots with Marinara.

SO we all like pizza. If you don't you are lying, and we don't like liars here at soSTL. Chains are always good in pinch, but if you are interested in a little taste of NYC Style Pizza, B&T stands and delivers. (See what I did there?) It is a typical "order and then sit down and wait for your number to be called" kind of place. The slices are crazy cheap at lunch, and the house salad is pretty standard as well. The garlic knots are awesome! I would reccomend one order for two people, or if you are like me, you aren't going to want to share, so get one for yourself. The interior is straight out of a CB2 catalog, in fact, I am pretty sure they bought those spy mirrors from the catalog. Its a pretty simple place but has a clean, modern spin that is always nice. There are flat panels going with news and sports, so you can go with friends  for a quick lunch by yourself. Deliver is only for large orders, so plan on picking it up if you arent eating in. They have great topping variety and they heat every slice in the oven before you get it, so nothing is under a heat lamp.

+Great legit NYC style Pizza. Easy and Cheap. Garlic Knots are a must!
- No delivery for small orders, can be crowded right at the noon hour.

Check it out for a quick lunch or for big orders for a casual event!

Order: Bison Burger with Goat Cheese, Sweet Potato Fries, Tang Martini, Garlic Edamame

SO the Central West End is brimming with good food and fun hangouts, we know this. Sub-Zero is a staple of the neighborhood, and has been since 2004. It got its start as a vodka bar and sushi place (NOT a martini bar! This is a sensitive subject for them) I am a frequent customer, as thier bison burger is amazeballs. The service is decent but can be hit or miss, specially during busy times.

Here how it breaks down. Drinks=EPIC WIN. The drink list is almost as large as the encylopdia brittanica. They boast the largest vodka selection in the world (as least that what they claim) and even have thier own special infused vodkas. They have a drink for everyone, and everyone should have a drink at the Ice bar. (No, I'm not kidding, the bar has an ice inset to keep your drinks chilled)

The food is by all accounts great. Everyone I've gone with has raved about its good selection. The sushi rolls are more designer, but the chef is a ritz carlton alum, so you know it has to be at least decent. I recommend the buffalo tuna roll.

The service is usaully friendly but I have had some bad apples. The atmsphere is posh and trendy, with some lounge/house music to set the mood, but it often draws in a wannabe upper crust crowd that can get a bit annoying. Sitting on the street is fun when weather allows, but it does get very loud when its busy, but the food is worth the visit alone.

+ Spectacular Drinks, Excellent food
Service can be spotty, and the crowd on weekends is slightly obnoxious in the bar area.

A big thumbs up for the food and the amazing drink list. Go during an off time for the best experience!

    Price $$
    Order: Philly Roll, Pork Gyoza, Edamame

    SO with sushi bars being as popular as they are these days, one might think ot discount one with a generic "Japanese" name like Wasabi.  I met a few friends for lunch there, a few downtown natives, and the service could not have been better. They immediately asked about my friends' children and took the time to connect, or in this case reconnect, with thier patrons. We ordered right away, and had our rolls and gyoza within about 10-15 minutes. The drinks were refilled without having to ask and the atmosphere was cool, urban, but slightly traditional. I think i caught a little coldplay and daft punk in the background. The food comes on those fun wooden boats and you have the standard American options of chopsticks or silverware. The food was delicious, much better than your typical inland sushi, and the presentation is simple, but elegant. (Yes, sushi can be elegant) At lunch, the crowd seemed a bit loud, but most great restaurants are. Parking can be tricky dowtown, but theres a public lot off Lucas behind Rosalita's.

    + great food, quick, friendly service, cool urban vibe
    a bit crowded, but for good reason, parking is tough.

    A big thumbs up! Check it out!
