Last night my son and I checked out Publico located at 6679 Delmar in The Loop.
"A true Taberna, Público features Hand crafted cocktails, a custom wood burning hearth and an exploration of Latin American flavors. Central and South American traditional style of cuisine with a strong Spanish and Island influence. All coming from a wood fire hearth."
Publico is brought to you by the same people as A Good Pie and Half and Half...two established winners!

Last week I made it over to Clementine's Creamery in Lafayette Square after a nice, lite dinner at Pho Grand. I was disappointed that they did not have Key Lime ice cream in stock, though had a scoop of Manchego with Truffles and Honey...and a scoop of Strawberry with Balsamic and White Pepper. They have a two scoop minimum...I had to! Naughty or Nice refers to boozy or non-boozy flavors. The space is well stylized. Check it out!
Before catching the latest Avengers movie at Creve Coeur 12, my son and I checked out Kimcheese. Asian Fusion food....Korean Mexican??? All I know is that it was yummy and worth checking out! They have a location where the old Oberweis store was near Creve Coeur 12 at 10441 Olive Rd and another further West at 13435 Olive.

I love the nice reviews that some of my recent clients have given me on Zillow. Read them all HERE
"Ted is an amazing realtor, he knows the market and did a great job positioning our house in the market with targeting advertising and strategically planned open houses. Ted effectively guided us through preparing the house for sale, the contract negotiation and ultimate closing. Ted is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a house."
"Ted was beyond helpful throughout the entire process. He knows the central corridor of St. Louis extremely well and heavily marketed my listing, which we had under contract within only nine days."
"We worked with Ted for over a year looking for our perfect home. He was always on top of showing us new listings and was very helpful in the negotiation when we finally found the one. Ted shared his expertise when it was time to put our previous home on the market and we received multiple offers from day one."
"We bought land upon which to build in Jan 2014, and sold our house in Webster Groves with him last month. He's wonderful, the last I heard the no. 2 high-volume salesperson in St. Louis. His most conspicuous differences from typical realtors are his responsiveness, expertise, efficiency and vast local knowledge. We recommend him unreservedly."
"Ted Wight truly is an amazing realtor! He definitely goes beyond any expectations of service and availability! Ted is very dedicated to the business and understands the true realities of the market. He is serious and professional but makes the often stressful process, fun. Ted really makes one feel as if they are his only client."
