Doug Roth, partner in Chi town Marche and Red Light is opening Red Moon in Downtown St. Louis next Wed. last night I was invited to a pre-opening to give feedback. Marc Felix is amazing, he has a fusion French/Thai/Vietnamese menu that abounds with flavor. The decor is gorgeous, hip textural as well as multi-colored, the chairs have cut-out cloth backs, the kitchen is open, the chef's room has 2 walls collaged in Asian magazines with naked womens...... Gorgeous floor, fun environment..... We had a 6 top at 8:30.....it was packed and booming. Marc was expecting 75 max, they had 120+ show up.... I ordered for the table....duck shiitake fried spring rolls (Yummmmm), crab cakes with a spicy mayo sauce and root slaw I love that he did not stint on the heat, fish sate on skewers with noodles was fine, mussels in a coconut curry sauce were plump and lucious one of the group did not want to give them up, chicken rolls wrapped in lettuce, coconut shrimp with mayo and dipping sauce (yum) it was wonderul.....then entrees, teriyaki ribeye with sweet potato fries and orange aioli (out standing, I told Marc if he goes ala carte with the fries I would drive across town for them), coconut cornish game hen was exceptionally tender, whole snapper with rice was wonderful, braised ribs with mashed potatoes/pearl onions....yummy though we did not care to crunch on whole spices chocolate mousse cake pyramid with a vanilla goo center was absolutely incredible, mango cheese cake with coconut crust was great. The sound levels were LOUD, there were so many hard surfaces that the music and the full restaurant made it impossible to hear the person across the table or one over. Hopefully that will be remedied prior to opening. Interesting food HURRAY!!!
