|The scallops at Mosaic Bistro Market|
This week I visit one of the new members of the Mosaic restaurant family, Mosaic Bistro Market
in Clayton. Follow me after the jump for a sneak preview of my review.
The rabbit leg "daube" was the most appealing dish on the menu of
Mosaic Bistro Market. Thumper is largely absent from St. Louis
restaurants, and this preparation promised braised bunny with the
intriguing addition of merguez sausage. I ordered it only to learn that
it was gone -- not sold out, but off the menu entirely.
"We need to reprint the menu," our server said by way of apology.
The new document will be difficult to fault. True to the restaurant's
name, it will offer exactly what the average diner likely envisions
when the word "bistro" appears: a decent steak and a braised lamb
shank, plates of cheese and charcuterie and bowls of mussels. Does the
late-autumn menu include butternut squash soup? But of course!
Visit the RFT restaurant page
late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
