Downtown Restaurant Week

Where can you get a 3-course meal for $25? St. Louis Downtown Restaurant Week. We’ve taken advantage of the week-long food fest for the past couple of years, and this year we chose Prime 1000 as our dining destination. For those of you familiar with St. Louis, Prime 1000 is located on Washington Ave. in the location where Kitchen K used to be.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give Prime 1000 a 6. The deep fried gnocchi I had for the second course was yummy, but the pork belly I ordered for the third course left much to be desired. Too rubbery, not enough flavor. But I would be willing to go back and order off the regular menu. Their steak selection looked pretty impressive.

The service was great, though. We had a very friendly server, and the owner (at least he looked like the owner — the long hair, multiple rings on his fingers and Ozzy Osbourne-esque trench coat was a dead giveaway) came by twice to ensure everything was up to snuff.

As the sun began to go down, the buzz around downtown started to pick up, too. Which is always nice to see. Makes you want to grab a table on one of the restaurant patios and people watch with a glass ‘o wine. Here, photos I took to document our dinner outing downtown.

Across the street from Prime 1000 is a global fusion restaurant, Mosaic. And parked right in front of us was a limited edition Audi R8, which was stopping people (er, men) dead in their tracks for a close look (er, drool).

And on the way home, I Instagrammed this. A downtown corridor at 10th and Locust.

It was a great night to be downtown. Wish every week could be Restaurant Week.
