Annie Gunn's - The Smokehouse - St. Louis, MO

Date Visited:  6/30/2012 - Lunch

Upscale local restaurant.  Same class as Blackfinn, J. Alexanders, Capital Grille, etc.
Wait staff very knowledgeable and friendly (Brett)

Items Ordered:
Appetizer: Smoked Shrimp
Meal: The Classic Burger
Dessert: Bread Pudding

Beverage: Iced tea...not sweet, not in the south anymore, but I didn't want the sugar to alter my taste buds for the meal.

Shrimp - cold smoked, semi sweet, succulent, jumbo shrimp with maple glaze.  KC style BBQ sauce on side.  Black bean salsa was refreshing and light.  Al-dente, room temperature beans.  Whoever thought of this appetizer is a genius!  You won't want to share with anyone else. 

Burger - hearty thick burger with mild, even, beef flavor, not overly seasoned.  Wheat bun a little thick.  Fries were crispy and perfect.  Mustard based dipping sauce was delicate.

Bread pudding with makers mark caramel sauce.  Bread light and airy, not characteristic of a bread pudding, but tasty all the same.  Whisky adds nice tang to the caramel sauce, and infiltrates the banana slices that swim in the bowl.
