Joanie's has a thin-crust pizza that's so good it rivals Imo's. It also serves that other St. Louis staple, toasted ravioli. Get the traditional version with meat or try an order made with spinach-artichoke insides. You can also get thick or double-crust pizza, as well as specialty sandwiches like the "Soulard Muffaletta," stacked with Genoa salami, Bavarian ham, mozzarella, roasted peppers and antipasto relish.

The Dubliner makes traditional Irish food, but much of it uses locally sourced ingredients, like beef ribs braised in stout, a Guinness stew and even homemade blood sausage. It is open till 3 a.m. after the ride, so stop in for a Black and Tan.
Next: the Central West End and a big finish in the Grove.
