Mange Bene During Restaurant Week on The Hill

St. Louis, MO/April 30, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – A visit to The Hill neighborhood in South St. Louis is always a delicious adventure.  With a strong Italian heritage, The Hill is home to some of the best restaurants in the metro area.  So, an opportunity to dine at some of the best restaurants on The Hill at a discount shouldn’t be missed!  Fortunately, the 6th Annual Restaurant Week on The Hill is coming up May 1–7, 2017.  The annual event showcases local restaurants and gives St. Louis diners a chance to enjoy a specially priced three-course meal at any of a dozen participating restaurants.

Here’s how it works: Participating restaurants will offer a three-course prix fixe menus starting at $25 per person (tax and tip not included).  All diners need to do is choose their venue, reserve a seat, and then show up for dinner at any of the participating restaurants.  There are no coupons, tickets, or special discount cards required.  Just dine and enjoy.  Reservations are not required, but they are highly recommended as this is one of the most popular Restaurant Week events in St. Louis.

Besides an affordable sample of some of the very best Italian food the city has to offer, Restaurant Week customers will also be raising money for KidSmart St. Louis.  The charity’s Tools for Learning program finds surplus school supplies and gets them into the hands of classroom teachers and their students who need them.  At the end of the meal, diners will be given the option to make a donation to benefit KidSmart St. Louis.  Last year, Restaurant Week on the Hill raised nearly $2,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

A dozen of The Hill’s most popular restaurants are participating this year, including longtime favorites Anthonino’s Taverna, Cunetto’s House of Pasta, Favazza’s, and Gian-Tony’s Ristorante.  Each is offering a three-course meal that offers diners their choice of starters, a combination of choices like salads, soups, and appetizers like toasted ravioli and Five Bistro’s Tagliatelle Bolognese.  Entree choices run the gamut from Anthonino’s 6 oz. filet or Bartolino’s Osteria’s Lobster Risotto to the signature Shrimp Brazie at Brazie’s Ristorante, and the famous Paella Valenciana at Guido’s Pizzeria & Tapas.  The third course, dessert, will bring sweet offerings of Italian classics, like tiramisu, fresh cannoli, and house-made gelatos, as well as St. Louis classics like gooey butter cake and bread pudding.

Most menu items are included in the $25.00 price, but a few cost just a little more.  For instance, Lorenzo’s Trattoria is offering a Grilled Angus Beef Filet with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus in a red wine reduction that will set you back an addition $5.00.  So will Favazza’s grilled beef tenderloin in a rosemary Marsala wine sauce.  At all of the venues taxes, tips, and drinks are extra.  Still, Restaurant Week on the Hill offers an affordable night out at some of the city’s best restaurants.  A complete list of participating restaurants can be found on the event website: http://www.restaurantweekonthehill.com/.  The special Restaurant Week dinner menus for each is also posted, along with a link or phone number for reservations.
