To say that Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co. brings good seafood to St. Louis is a huge understatement. It's more like the doorway to the Benton Park eatery is some sort of wormhole, transporting diners to a dockside table on the Chesapeake Bay. It's a good thing, too -- Peacemaker was the most hotly anticipated St. Louis restaurant opening of the year (even the national food site Eater took notice). That's mostly because of the man at the helm, chef Kevin Nashan, whose Midas touch has earned him acclaim for Sidney Street Cafe, a James Beard Award nomination and a passionate fan base. It's no surprise, then, that his new seafood concept lives up to -- no, exceeds -- the hype.More »
