Bar Les Frères

Tiny Bar Les Frères isn’t quite as tiny as it was upon opening in late 2012, thanks to a modest expansion, but this venture from the team of restaurateur Zoë Robinson Pidgeon and chef Ny Vongsaly (I Fratellini, Bobo Noodle House) is still the coziest spot in town, perfect for that too-long-awaited date night. The menu doesn’t venture far from the classic French brasserie canon: steamed mussels, steak au poivre, duck confit. My two favorite dishes here are the lobster bisque — truly lobster-flavored, and the best in St. Louis — and the strongly seasoned Toulouse sausage with braised cabbage and a potato pancake.

From the owners

A sense of romance and intimacy in the room is cut with a splash of nonchalance and sophistication. Classic French food and drink with enough of a modern edge to keep you intrigued. Slightly unconventional, yet utterly comfortable. Bar Les Frères is proof positive that good things come in small packages.
