The 5 Best Menus at Restaurant Week on the Hill 2014
Arancini at Lorenzo's Trattoria. | Ian Froeb
(1933 Edwards Street; 314-773-2223)
Lorenzo's three course special has more choices than some of the other menus, which might call for a repeat visit. Start with shrimp and roasted garlic ravioli, arancini, a house salad or the soup of the day. For your entree, choose from risotto with shrimp, calamari and scallops in mushroom ragu, house-made spinach gnocchi with portabella mushrooms, spinach tortellini and lemon dressing, chicken spedini stuffed with spinach and pancetta with asparagus and linguine in a garlic tomato mushroom broth, fettuccine with a braised short rib ragu and baby spinch, or a grilled angus beef filet with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus in a red wine reduction. Dessert is gelato, a chocolate-dipped cannoli or cinnamon amaretto bread pudding. Make a reservation here.
