FoodWire: Four Forbes Stars for Tony's Restaurant
No Missouri restaurants joined the rather select company of five-star winners. According to the Forbes website, a four-star restaurant "provides professional service, distinctive presentations and superb food," while a five-star "is one of few flawless dining experiences in the country. They consistently provide their guests with exceptional food, superlative service, elegant decor and exquisite presentations of each detail surrounding the meal."
Not to take anything away from Tony's, but you do have to wonder how up-to-date the Forbes/Mobil listings for St. Louis are, in general: The relatively brief list includes a restaurant closed for quite some time now (Joseph's), while the surely star-worthy Niche is nowhere to be found.
