Kreis Restaurant Restaurant Review: The Prime sirloin strip is the star of the menu at this cozy, clubby spot. The upscale clientele from the haute 'burb of Ladue and surrounding swank zip codes gather, just as their parents did, for lamb chops and lobster tails as well as other corn-fed, Midwest-raised, aged-in-house steaks sided by double-baked potatoes. If the wine list doesn’t have quite the right bottle, bring your own for a reasonable corkage fee. The Tompras family has run Kreis’ Restaurant for more than 50 years, and although they’ve updated the menu and the kitchen staff, old-school touches of class remain. So do some German favorites, including house-made apple strudel. No matter what changes on the menu, the prime rib, which comes in both large and heart-stopping portions, is always a popular dish.
