Earlier this week I took my sons and mother to The Libertine for dinner. It was an eventful night. My Aunt (not Aunt Bunny….her sister) was having some leg issues and I took her to St. Mary's to be evaluated. Usually it takes forever to get through the emergency room, so I got her situated there and then scurried off to pick up my mother and sons for dinner. (I may sound a little uncaring to leave her at the emergency ward, though this is the 5th time on the last few months that I have been there with her. Thank goodness that it was not a 3 AM call like it has been.) The moment we pulled up to the valet to go into The Libertine in Clayton, the hospital called and said that she was ready to be picked up. I have been used to them admitting her overnight. So now the four of us sped away and picked her up from the hospital to take her home. After we got her comfortable in her bedroom…we zoomed back to The Libertine.
By this point we were all starving and ready for a glass of wine. The restaurant is sharp looking and fun. This is one of those places that has a ton of specialty drinks covered in a 20 page menu and a 1 page dining menu. We really enjoyed our meal. My sons said that their favorite was the roasted califlower side. It really was special. My mother was excited to see She-crab soup on the menu. The food is Southern-inspired. The grits on the side of the "three-bird" entree were delicious. The only miss was the sunflower seed risotto, which really was too salty.
Super cute and stylish historic home. 2.5 stories on a
double lot. Many updates throughout. First floor includes a gracious foyer,
large living room, 1 full bath and state of the art kitchen with granite
countertops, all newer stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar. Natural
woodwork highlights this home. On the second floor you will find 3 large
bedrooms and 2 full baths, including a large master suite with contemporary
master bath. The third floor has 2 rooms that can be used as additional
bedrooms or office space. Both 3rd floor rooms are equipped with
sinks with the ability to add another full bathroom. The heating and cooling
has been replaced with high efficiency forced air. The entire home has been
re-wired and all of the knob-and-tube has been taken out. The fenced backyard
has a lovely deck and is perfect for entertaining. Walk to the restaurants on
Grand and the Compton Heights establishments like The Shaved Duck. Yum!
With our California-like weather today, it was perfect to have lunch at Olio on Tower Grove Ave. I felt like I was on vacation! Jen, my friend, joined me. Egg Salad and Crab Tartines! Roasted Califlower dip! Yum! I wish I could have had a glass of wine, though I would have had to have a long afternoon nap.
This lovely, contemporary home located in University City closed today. I represented the Sellers. The market is so much better. I had this one on the market for a few months last year and it did not sell. This year when I put it back on….it sold the first week!
Amy Burger from the St. Louis Post Dispatch is coming Tuesday to have my house photographed and write a little article….will I ever be ready? My Paul McCobb side table arrived today with a travertine top.
