This Week’s Dish: Clayton Restaurant Week Features 15 Dining Destinations
The third annual Clayton Restaurant Week: Summer Edition is here. Starting today through July 17, hit up some of your favorite Clayton dining spots. Cantina Laredo, Remy’s Kitchen & Wine Bar, 801 Fish and Ruth’s Chris are just a few of the 15 restaurants that will be participating, featuring special menus for $35 or $25. As if you needed more reason to dine out, there’s also a charity tie-in with Operation Food Search. You’ll be able to donate a $5 “extra helping” to benefit the St. Louis area food bank that is the largest distributor of free food in the bi-state area.
If you’re needing a cool treat to escape the heat, Piccione Pastry is celebrating National Ice Cream Month with half-priced Italian ice cream Tuesday-Friday in July. Get scratch-made ice creams with classic and seasonal flavors such as vanilla bean, caramelized banana and raspberry or lemon sorbet. 6197 Delmar Blvd., University City
