A Pre-Grand Opening Look at The Stable!

I'm not supposed to officially write about The Stable....yet. The grand opening isn't until Saturday (6/21) and I believe in giving a restaurant time to find its feet. I'm also friendly with the owners and kitchen.

In any case, I strongly recommend that all of you visit when you can. The taps are very micro-heavy, the food is spectacular (especially the pappardelle with smoked chicken, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes), the decor is classic Jones (see Rotten Apple review), and hopefully, the few service burps will work themselves out within a couple of weeks.

Soooo worth the short trip to the Falstaff brewery complex at Lemp and Cherokee.

Here are a few pics to get you excited....

...Left Hand milk stout, O'Fallon 5 Day IPA, Scrimshaw Pilsner, and Hoegaarden

...The still, currently in the process of making local whiskey

...An at least two-story chandelier, assembled in pieces from salvaged stuff in the brewery complex

...That means booze!

...Another one of the chandeliers. Much like the huuuuge one, most of the features at The Stable were salvaged from old, falling down buildings.
