THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Faust's Restaurant Review

: A cut above the average hotel dining room, Faust's tries hard to be one of the leading restaurants in town, and often succeeds. The spacious room, unfortunately, is unenthusiastically decorated and doesn't take full advantage of its location in the corner of the Adam's Mark Hotel closest to the Arch, with a fine view of that dramatic public sculpture and the Mississippi River beyond. The staff tries hard, with good results and full knowledge of the menu. The offerings change seasonally, and move smartly in the direction of new and luxe. Lobster bisque is subtle; a raw tuna first course is draped around a rich, slightly tangy avocado salsa. There seems always to be duck of some sort, rack of lamb and roast chicken, with garnishes like fresh asparagus that would fit in soda straws. The kitchen has historically had problems with sweets, proffering gorgeous items that were a disappointment to the palate. Things have improved in that direction, however, and the meal can come to a satisfactory end.
