Remy's Kitchen and Wine Bar
(222 South Bemiston Avenue, Clayton; 314-726-5757)
Remy's has one of the larger selections for its prix-fixe menu, full of Mediterranean favorites. Start with hummus, a Mediterranean salad of cucumber, tomato, Kalamota olives and feta cheese tossed with lemon and olive oil, tomato basil soup, fritto misto, shrimp, calamari and bay scallops with a lemon mustard vinaigrette or stuffed grapevine leaves with stuffed ground lamb and rice in a tomato cumin sauce. For the main course, loosen that belt. It's grilled Faroe Island salmon with a soy honey glaze and ginger scallion aioli, served with Gorgonzola whipped potatoes and seasonal vegetables; rosemary and black truffle grilled beef tenderloin with mushroom asparagus ragout; Moroccan kale and tomato stew with garbanzo beans and fennel on cardamom rice; bronzed mahi topped with shrimp on French green lentils; bacon-wrapped Berkshire pork loin with pomegranate molasses, spaghetti squash and roasted Yukon gold potatoes. Room for dessert? Try chocolate Napoleon cocoa phyllo crisps layered with chocolate mousse and served with espresso crème anglaise or almond crusted mascarpone cheesecake with double cherry compote or the
tiramisu, layers of pound cake soaked with Sambuca and coffee, topped with mascarpone cream, pistachios and chocolate shavings.
