The Red Lion
is now open at 7336 Manchester Road
in Maplewood (the former Fu Manchu space). The Red Lion styles itself "an American gastropub." You can see the menu
and judge for yourself, but the restaurant does offer its philosophy of what an "authentic" American gastropub is:
American pub food is in a class of its own. Food critics and restaurant weeklies fail
time and again to differentiate. As
Americans we often struggle at a white clothed table with an arrogant waiter
and his his long list of specials. Told
time and again why its [sic] special, but never deciding for ourselves. Meanwhile resorting back to our local pub,
debating only what we know American cuisine.
This toasted rav is better than that, these nachos rock those. Why doesn't the house do this, if I served
these I would do that. Your paying the
tab, you deserve better. A delicious
treat you crave. Seek no longer, Maplewood is offering the destination others only advertise. Introducing an American Gastropub. The bistro for Americans craving delicious
local and American favorites worthy of your dining out dollar. The Red Lion (an American Gastropub) offers
The Red Lion is open daily from 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Call 314-374-8533 for more info.
