Each week, we nominate a new restaurant for you to review. That's right, you're the local expert.
When it comes to restaurants, Maryland Heights has it covered. 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, …

Elevator enthusiasts film elevators and put their videos on YouTube to share with fellow enthusiasts all over the world. A local enthusiast filmed the elevators at the Westport Plaza in Maryland Heights.
Jacob Bachta, a freshman at Saint Louis University, admits his hobby is “pretty odd” and “very awkward.” “I think it’s very strange,” Bachta said. “Most people that do it think it’s strange, too. But if you do what you enjoy…” Bachta pauses, considering his words before continuing. “Honestly, I take a lot of pride in being different.” Bachta is an elevator enthusiast. When he isn’t studying computer science or visiting his parents in Jefferson City, he wanders the city looking for interesting elevators and filming them for his friends in the Elevator YouTube Community. Bachta filmed the elevators at Westport Plaza in Maryland Heights with fellow enthusiast Andrew Reams and said the elevators at the Sheraton Hotel were “a real rarity.” The …

After a negative review last year, we sent our restaurant reviewer back to Paul Mineo’s to see if things had changed in the kitchen.
Here at Lunch in 30, we believe in giving restaurants a second chance. I know any restaurant can have a bad day, so in the spirit of fairness, I decided to give it a generous amount of time to clean up its act and go back for a second review. This was the restaurant's chance to make me eat my words. It's a good thing I decided to venture into alone. The last time I stopped by for lunch I practically had the restaurant to myself. This time, it was packed nearly to capacity. I took that as a good sign and cheerfully let them seat me at a small bar table. For those who have never ventured inside Paul Mineo's, the cozy restaurant has a small, intimate feel that makes it the polar opposite of the large, loud across the sidewalk. The bar doesn't…
