Restaurants hold a special place in our lives. Some we remember for their atmosphere, others for their food and some for who we dined with.

Growing up in St. Louis, I remember Sunday drives with my father to pick up dinner from Golden Fried Chicken Loaf. I remember looking forward to the veal parmigiana when we celebrated family birthdays at Ruggeri’s. I remember sharing a Cleopatra with my high school sweetheart at Cyrano’s.

We've lost many of the St. Louis restaurants once special to us. Lost Tables archives the culinary memories of these eating places – from their first course to their last.

Lost Tables is a companion to the Lost Dishes website, which preserves recipes for the special dishes served at these iconic St. Louis restaurants.


Articles are arranged newest to oldest. An alphabetical listing of the Lost Tables chronicled can be found in our Restaurant Index.
