6 of Clayton’s Most Romantic Dinner Spots

I Fratellini: One of three eateries owned by celebrated restaurateur Zoë Robinson, I Fratellini is considered by many to be the most romantic restaurant in St. Louis. The small, sophisticated interior is the perfect setting for two people to enjoy a superb Italian meal.

Bar Les Frères: Robinson’s second restaurant, located across the street from I Fratellini, doesn’t skimp on romance either—the walls are even red. If French cuisine is more your style, this is the place to go. The seating is very limited, though, so you’ll want to act quickly with a reservation.

Billie-Jean: Robinson’s newest restaurant, located on the same small stretch of road as her two others, focuses on American and Asian cuisine. The space is surrounded by black and dimly lit, so you’ll have no choice but to focus on your dining partner. Billie-Jean will no doubt be filled with couples on Feb. 14, as the dining room doesn’t even have tables that seat more than four people.

The Capital Grille: While the main courses here are nothing to brush off, they aren’t the only great options. The Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese is another star of the menu. The service is personable, which is perhaps a reason why some guests dine so frequently that they decide to rent one of the wine lockers that are integrated into the décor.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House: You can’t go wrong at Ruth’s Chris. The opulent atmosphere, exceptional service, and sizzling steaks can satisfy any couple. Get dressed up, order a bottle of Napa Valley cab, and split The Porterhouse for Two.

801 Chophouse and 801 Fish: The lavish interiors of these two restaurants, located across the street from one another, embody the idea of fine dining. The steaks at 801 Chophouse are first-rate, and the seafood at 801 Fish is some of the best in the region. To top it all off, the service will make you feel like royalty.
