Fair enough!

It's a pretty easy argument that what is inner ring in St. Louis would literally be in the city limits in most cities that aren't an itty bitty 61 sq/miles, so many of our inner-ring 'burbs are pretty urban, and our mid-ring 'burbs pretty inner ring in feel.

Of course, if there is a mapping question, I feel compelled to answer it somehow. Scocar is right: I-170 would bisect WG, and part of it lies below 44.

I was looking for home rentals in that very section of 44 last night, and it's incredible, once you cross over into Crestwood, there's an immediate change of feel and character.

If you are not familiar with the area, the homes below the 44 in Webster are much more of the red brick ranch style variety. North of the 44 you get more of the turn-of-the-century Victorian architecture that WG and Kirkwood are known for.

I LOVE the food in St. Louis! Unfortunately, outside of "the hill", I don't think any neighborhoods have distinct types of restaurants that truly define the area.
When in doubt, use yelp.com and search by type of food and just go to the top rated restaurants. You won't be disappointed!

I have lived here for 6+ years and even though my work travel takes me all over the country and the globe, I am never disappointed by the diverse options St. Louis restaurants have to offer. This city knows good food, surprisingly more so than some of the biggest metropolis in this country.

I'm surprised no one mentioned my absolute favorite St Louis restaurant: Sidney Street Cafe. Sidney Street Cafe: Home It's not a cafe - it's a restaurant that's elegant yet not stuffy. Food is amazing. I return to St Louie to visit my parents a couple of times a year and we make the trek from icky North County to Benton Park just to go to Sidney St. Fabulous!

One of the things I love about St. Louis now is the variety of restaurants and the lack of those "chain" places in the "inner ring" area. Ok, maybe a couple of Applebees in Clayton/U City, and a Pizza Hut or two or three, but very few if any of the O'Charleys, Chedders, Red Lobster Ruby Tuesday, types.

Instead we get a great variety of well made eats.
