El Restaurante del Dia de las Tapas Muertas

.
Sanctuaria 2

On Sunday night Mrs. C and I had dinner with our daughter and son in law. We wanted their advice on things to see and do in the place we're going this weekend, a location they have already visited (in no small part due to the wonderful help of one of our CDP colleagues). More about all of that by the weekend.

We wanted to try a newish restaurant in The Grove neighborhood with the odd name of Sanctuaria. Patrons don't get blasted with the Rolling Stones playing Gimme Shelter as they enter. Rather, it's an Americanized tapas place with a beautifully done, lightly applied, Mexican Day of the Dead (El Dia de los Muertos) theme. Very sophisticated. The food was excellent, the prices were moderate and the people were great. Definitely recommended.

Things keep going round and round today on Downtown St. Louis 365.

Hebrews 13:1-2 Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

Do you mean the dia de los muertos theme isn't seasonal in this restaurant but a long term one? Weird.

Now for your future destination - looks like a conspiracy. Wonder where that will be ?

Love everything that has to do with the Dia de los Muertos and this decoration is fantastic. Really cool.
