OCEANO bistro - Chesterfield,MO

  Oceano is St. Louis' premiere fresh fish bistro.  Chef Dave works in partnership with fishermen and farmers to bring innovative and fresh cuisine to the St. Louis area.  Oceano offers a beautiful dining experience that will bring a special feeling to your evening out.  From the owners (The Hebson's ), to the Chef ( Dave), the bartender (Corey) and our handsome waiter (Nick).  We where in for a fabulous dining experience that even included a elegant presentation of our appetizers that were presented to us at the bar.   The bar is large and designed to be conversation friendly.  It is the perfect spot for a impromptu gathering for Happy Hour.  Which seemed to be very popular judging from the friendly folks around the bar.
Wonderful specials for cocktails, wine and appetizers were available.
  The outside patio is one of the best and most tranquil outside dining areas in St. Louis.

    NARA SUSHI is located in O'Fallon, MO not far from that "other" Japanese restaurant on Hwy K.  But in my opinion, a small,  intimate and nicely decorated space.  Not much on the outside but a warm and inviting atmosphere on the inside.
   Master Kim  is the Sushi Chef that creates many of their signature sushi dishes. He has been a Sushi Chef for over 40 years.  He is from Korea and has owned restaurants in other parts of the country.                          Every table is given Edaname, and your choice of soup or the tasty ginger salad or both. Now you won't get that at the "other" restaurant unless you pay extra for it!
  If you are new to Nara you will be encouraged to try "the Playboy Roll"!  And you will not be disappointed.  The handsome, friendly waiter brings the roll to the to the table as is it is flaming and wrapped in foil. Then it is unwrapped and presented to the table as a roll of 2 shrimp tempura, crab, cream cheese, topped with 3 shrimp with 5 special sauces and furikake.  All that to share with the table for just $13.95 or a meal for yourself!  I really don't want to share my playboy roll.
