Fairmont City's Mi Tierra Tienda y Taqueria (3121 Collinsville Road, Fairmont City, Illinois; 618-271-8168) is a tiny, out-of-the-way spot -- and even after you've arrived, you still have to look for the restaurant inside it.

Bar Les Frères (7637 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton; 314-725-8880) is one of the smallest restaurants you'll ever visit in St. Louis.

This week I visit Bar Les Frères (7637 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton; 314-725-8880), the new venture from well-known local restaurateur Zoë Robinson Pidgeon and her go-to chef, Ny Vongsaly (I Fratellini, Bobo Noodle House).
Bar Les Frères is small -- very, very small -- but there is a lot to remark upon, not least of all the décor.
