As intrepid guests found out 24 hours before the first St. Louis dinner, the restaurant of choice was The Block’s new location in the Central West End. I’m a big Block -WG fan, so the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the newest addition to their restaurant family was a tremendous treat. My fellow guests were delightful company and Marc del Pietro out-did himself with the courses he and his crew presented. Although, note, the below menu isn’t really a reflection of the Block CWE’s current dinner menu–it was more a treat that we as Mystery Meet diners got to have. All of it was scrumptious. And if you’re an urbanite, city-dweller who can’t bear to make the trek to Webster Groves, get thee to The Block in the Central West End.
All said and done, it was a lovely evening. Good food. Good conversation. New friends. We damn near closed the place down. If you have the chance to attend a Mystery Meet dinner, I highly recommend. Keep your eyes peeled.
