    They like pork here. And so do I. And any place that places pork on a pedestal makes me happy. The place is crazy busy, but your food comes out fast. And it's oh, so good. Standard BBQ fare - brisket, pork, ribs, etc. Leave your diet at home. And if you really want to horrify some vegetarians and get all "Man vs. Food," they have the Big Ben -- a 6-pound mountain of pulled pork, beek brisket, chicken, ribs and four sides. One drawback: no beer (go next door to Buffalo Brewing).

    A Pleasant Surprise
    At first glance, you might not think a meal with hummous as the base would do the trick. I was skeptical. But that quickly changed. Hummous is the star here, and they add a wide selection of vegetarian and meat toppings (I had lamb). The prices are reasonable, a rare find in SoHo. Probably because service is not automatically included in the bill, the waitstaff are fast, attentive and friendly -- so don't forget to tip!

    It's Busy For a Reason
    In a town where TexMex joints are a dime a dozen, Matt's stands out. Generally good food (TexMex standards), great margaritas (not too sweet!) and a convivial atmosphere. Be ready for families from the 'burbs, though.

    Great, Classic Food
    Imagine if you could open a restaurant ad only have your favorite dishes on the menu. I think that's what the owners of Fountain on Locust have done. Great dishes, local sourcing, no preservatives. And a bonus: good, classic cocktails! They are also quit famous for their ice cream -- amon the best you'll find in St. Louis.
