Last week, I expressed extreme enthusiasm for the 5-Spot's latest regional menu, which features the cuisine of my onetime home, St. Louis. A couple amendments: (1) I neglected to mention that on the dinner menu is a pork steak, a backyard BBQ delicacy best accompanied by a half-rack of Busch; (2) the music--essentially a rotation of Wilco and Son Volt--is regional too; and (3) sausage is substituted for hamburger on the Soulard Slinger. Not a big, fat, fucking sausiiiij-uh, but a slender, healthy-ish patty. Which is sort of cheating. But it's still good.
