Angad for the holidays

There is a celebration going on this season at the Angad Arts Hotel, make it multiple celebrations. The Christmas-themed Sleigh the Holidays suite is available for booking until January 2. Travelers and restaurant owners alike will discover a king suite decorated with a flocked Christmas tree, a faux fireplace with hanging stockings, holiday pillows and throws, a selection of on-demand classic holiday movies / DVDs, and film props such as How the Grinch stole Christmas and The Polar Express. Package includes two hot chocolate bombs (courtesy Amy’s Cake Pop Shop at Webster), marshmallows, peppermint candy canes, homemade cookies, an ornament from the Angad Arts Hotel, two hotel brand ceramic mugs with lids and two bottoms.

From Wednesday to Saturday evening from 4 p.m. to midnight this winter, clients of the Art Bar on the roof can also rent a furnished and heated igloo ($ 120 for two hours for two to eight people, with food and drinks not included) ; options ranging from bottle service or small plates and cocktails to cheese and chocolate fondue for the group. And on the lobby level, where the new Commonwealth restaurant received first accolades, chef Matt Birkenmeier is busy preparing a “Hangover Brunch” for the New Year. 3550 Samuel Shepard, 314-561-0333.


Places to consider for NYE

Do we remind you that New Years Eve is in three weeks? (This also surprised us.) While some will opt for nuestra casa, it’s still one of the biggest nights on many restaurant calendars, and some venues are already booked at peak times. Here are a few you might not have thought of: The venerable Tony’s moved this year, which means more dining options, like the heated covered patio (with heated floors). Blood & Sand offers a five course meal for $ 150 per person (with additional drink pairings). At Botanica, Chef Ben Welch whipped up a four-course New Years Eve dinner with cocktail pairings for $ 100 per person. Vicia has reinvented its Destination Dinner Series, which on NYE means unlimited access to interactive dining stations with cuisines from around the world (France, Italy, Spain and Burma), with guests visiting a new country every hour, including including exterior elements (weather permitting) in the new Gardenside space. Dining at Bulrush is always an unforgettable experience, and there are a few seats left for those at 5:45 p.m. Nudo House hosts its first ever six-course ‘Nudo Gets Fancy’ dinner from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., featuring dishes from Qui Tran, Marie-Anne Velasco and Michelin-starred chef Brian Fisher (plus a special pre-show appearance by Maggie Rose and Les Vibes which will be performing that evening at Delmar Hall). And at The Inns at St. Albans, guests will be treated to an appetizer buffet, cash bar, and Garden Glow tours. Choose from four start times and stay until the bar closes at 10 p.m., or book a room overnight.


Forgotten cutlery

Some may quickly throw this one in the trash, but when diners are hungry, their priorities change. This is why we get annoyed when we neglect the dishes, whether at the beginning of the meal (when the appetizers are served and no cover is present from the start) or later (when the following dishes are served without replacement cutlery). We are surprised how often staff members do not realize that the correct utensils are part of the course. Just to be sure, next time we could pack the trusty multi-purpose camping tool, the one with the knife, fork, and spoon attached.
