Quick Escapes for Business Travelers in St. Louis

Published Date Author: , February 23rd, 2013

St. Louis ArchSt. Louis is a staple of Americana, with the Gateway Arch standing as an appropriate monument that ushers weary travelers from east to west. Granted, we aren’t exactly in the Oregon Trail days any longer, but there’s still something magical about standing beneath the tallest man-made monument in the United States. Though the weather may be chilly this time of year, there’s a lot of heart in St. Louis to keep those passing through on business plenty warm. In an effort to get you outside of the boardroom and into an exploratory mindset, we’re offering up two restaurants, two attractions, and one bar that you can hit with just a few extra hours between meetings.

So, you want local? Coming right up. Just a few blocks northeast of the America’s Center Convention Complex sits Al’s Restaurant. Though simple in name, it has become a beacon of fine dining in the city. It’s actually owned and operated by three generations of a single St. Louis family, so it goes without saying that every single meal is served with the knowledge that their reputation is on the line. The steaks and seafood are world-class, and while it’s a pricey dinner, you can rest assured that any clients you bring along will leave satisfied.

While we’re on the subject, Rooster is an outstanding bet for those with a taste for breakfast. This place sources as much as it can from local farmers, and you’ll find a wealth of organic items as well. They’re usually open until 3:00PM or so, giving those who’d prefer breakfast for lunch a great excuse to visit. It’s also designed to be quick (without sacrificing quality), but try to hit it between peak hours if you’re looking for a brief queue.
