Three Flags Tavern is relatively new on the STL dining scene, but it has quickly gained notariety among foodies. They are already well-known for their lobster rolls and their ground-brisket burger. You won't want to miss this one! I could only get a reservation online for 6, but will look into a bigger table. Check out their website: www.threeflagstavern.com to get more insight into the menu, and more info here from FEAST magazine via Catherine Neville:
This newly opened tavern’s “three flags” moniker reflects the three cultures that inform the menu, which are also the three flags that have flown over the City of St. Louis since its founding 250 years ago: Spain, France and the U.S. At this beautifully rehabbed spot on the edge of The Hill, the kitchen is turning out unique dishes worthy of your attention.
Piping hot beignets studded with lobster meat are dusted with Old Bay-laced powdered sugar. Rabbit sausage is served alongside black bread and grain mustard. And posole features a hunk of Berkshire pork and two crisp pieces of fry bread, a novel take on the traditional stew. Light, flaky trout is served with lingonberries, herbs and a horseradish flan and the heirloom pork mixed grill will satisfy hearty appetites. For dessert, the flourless chocolate cake beckons, but we say get the apple tart, which is a rustic thing of beauty, served with softly whipped cardamon-Calvados cream. In short, Three Flags Tavern is a must-try.
