Can't recommend this place enough. We did the premium tasting menu and it did not disappoint. Kala was probably the best waitress we've had at any restaurant in STL.

I would like to invite my two nieces to dinner, along with their respective husbands at the Crossing. They recently performed a wonderful service for me and I believe they would enjoy dinner at your restaurant, which I regard to be among the top 5 in St. Louis. If I were to purchase a gift certificate for, say $250., could it be sent directly to one of my nieces?

Description
Featuring local "farm to table" food using a breadth of farmer in the Missouri and Illinois communities. When asked to define of The Crossing, Owner/Executive Chef Jim Fiala often says that he is a chef that buys locally whenever possible and cooks as any French and/or Italian chef would given the ingredients sourced. Joining Jim is Chef Matt Abeshouse who brings a wealth of passion and expertise in classic French cuisine to the kitchen. Our food is fresh, organic (whenever possible), seasonal and by design very simple. The Crossing stays true to classic techniques and the chefs love showing off their skills and passion for elegant food.
