A new restaurant, Joe’s Chili Bowl, opened last friday in the former Terrace View space at Citygarden in downtown St. Louis. Not much has changed as far as the interior is concerned, which is good because it is a gorgeous space.
What has changed however is the menu. Joe’s Chili Bowl, owned by restaurateurs Kim Tucci and Joe Fresta features ”Joe’s Famous Homemade Chili”, as well as Tamales, Chili Mac, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and more, including many Italian Specialties such as Tuscan Flatbread Pizza, Chicken Parmigiano, Lasagna and Spaghetti with Meatballs. Joe’s Chili Bowl also offers a Veggie Chili, Chicken Chili and a Grilled Salmon.
The terrace is one of the best features of the restaurant, overlooking the waterfalls on the northeast side of the lush Citygarden. If it looks a little quiet on the pictures, we were there at 3:30 PM on a Wednesday afternoon.
We appreciate that the atmosphere and appearance was kept like it was in its Terrace View days. The fact that it’s officially named “Joe’s Chili Bowl at The Terrace View” seems like a smart move as well as it negates the need for expensive new neon signs. The restaurant is open seven days a week from 6:30 until “late at night”. Check it out the next time you visit Citygarden or downtown St. Louis.
