THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Provencal Restaurant Review

: It's not quite a bistro in Aix-en-Provence, but it's as close as you'll get in the Show Me State. Situated in a boutique hotel, Café Provencal entertains young-at-heart Claytonians and their families and friends, heavy on doctors, lawyers and brokers. Eddie Neill's reasonable prix-fixe dinners of three or four courses star real French food like pâtés and potages and daubes, although there are a few excursions to Caesar salads and such. Expect the unusual, at least for St. Louis menus, with things like rabbit and skate, as well as more common dishes like an exemplary roast pork. Desserts always include something chocolate. This is a reliable spot for crème brûlée with the right ratio of custard to topping, too. The wine list includes fine, well-priced selections from such importers as Robert Kacher and Kermit Lynch. Also located at 427 S. Kirkwood Rd., Kirkwood, 314-822-5440.
