So we were walking around the neighborhood near the Chase Park Plaza in the Central West End of St. Louis, and came across this “hot” brunch spot on a Sunday morning. Gamlin Whiskey House offered a nice respite outside to enjoy a little breakfast. Menu highlights include: fried chicken on top of Belgium waffles, omelets, eggs Benedict, biscuits and gravy, fresh squeezed OJ, Mimosa, Bloody Mary’s and more. Brunch starts at 11 a.m.
For lunch, start with a St. Louis favorite of toasted ravioli. Other items of note are short rib sliders, Three Little Pigs, a cheese board and bread board served with a choice of three butters — honey-bourbon peppercorn, garlic parmesan, strawberry basil, blue, beer-braised onion and spicy herb.
There is always lobster bisque and soup du jour. Salads are served half or full and there are 6 to choose from.
Under sandwiches we saw the BLT, Blackened Beef Medallions, Smoked Salmon on Rye, Fried and Blackened Chicken Breast, Turkey, Prime Rib, The Hangover and a few more.
For a business or main meal lunch the menu offers everything from Ribeye to Saffron Fettuccine and Roasted Vegetable Couscous. Menu prices start at $5.50 and go to $18. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Dinner starts with the same apps and salads. Entrees range from $19 to $52. This steakhouse serves up Seabass, Pork Steak, Trout, Fried Chicken, Seafood Pastas, Moon Dance Farm Pot Pie, and Premium Hereford Hand-Cut Steaks that go all the way up to a 16-oz. Ribeye. All beef is Midwest raised. Dinners are served with house or Caesar salad, choice of side and butter.
Sides are delicious and complete the meal. They include White Cheddar Potato Gratin, Lobster & Corn Cake, Mashed Potatoes, Potato Wedges, Five Mushroom Sauté, Grilled Asparagus and Green Beans with Whiskey, Brown Sugar and Almonds.
Dinner menu served until the kitchen closes at 12:45 a.m.
Desserts are fab and all homemade. There is daily bread pudding, brownie cheesecake, bourbon vanilla creme brulee, fried cookies with chocolate sauce and ice cream, flourless chocolate cake and homemade ice cream and sorbet.
There is a really nice vibe to this spot and it’s a hip spot to get a drink with friends.
