I've never been to Papaya Grill and Catering. So I want the faithful readers of Maryland Heights Patch to steer me in the right direction.
I'm still relatively new to the Maryland Heights dining scene. Here's all I know about Papaya Grill and Catering: it specializes in smoked meats and offers a unique assortment of desserts like bread pudding and mango/pineapple canollis. But I've never been. So this article is simple. I want you to tell me how good Papaya Grill is? What's the best sandwich on the menu? Anything exotic they offer? If I went this afternoon, what would be the one thing I had to get? Let me know by writing a comment below. Thanks!

We have some great local places that many would consider community gems; some restaurants that aren't exactly mom-and-pop but are unique to the area; and we certainly—for better or for worse—have plenty of chains lining our main streets. But what we don't have is a consistent food critic to tell us what's good and what's not. That's where you come in. We could throw some money at a professional food critic, but that's not exactly what Patch is all about. We'd much rather know the opinion of the fine folks that eat there day-in and day-out. It's your community. You eat the food. You tell us if it passes the mark. That's why we are introducing The Friday Food Critic column, …
