THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED F15teen Restaurant Review

: This is not your average, celebrity-backed sports-bar-slash-steakhouse. Tucked into an old automobile dealership and named for the uniform number of former St. Louis Cardinal Jim Edmonds---a part-owner---F15teen is a serious dining room with a bar, windowed kitchen and large lounge down the hall---and that's just the first floor. Private dining rooms and a nightclub are above. This is where you see city types, from the young and fashionable to courthouse regulars, knock back cocktails or respectable wine and explore a rather atypical steakhouse menu---at least for St. Louis. You’ll find items like tomato-herb bisque with grilled cheese, a beef stroganoff sandwich and pesto-crusted salmon. You also can explore the unusual with first courses, like corn-filled tortellini. Then, veer back on track with topnotch steaks accompanied by interesting sauce options. Desserts include ice cream sandwiches and a delightful mocha shake made crunchy with Cocoa Puffs. The 6,000-square-foot patio is outfitted with two fireplaces, a boon during cool weather.
