Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co. opened less than a year ago, and it’s already winning top spots on every savvy foodie’s bucket list of must-tries. St. Louis celebrity chef Kevin Nashan, who brought Sidney Street Cafe to fame, filled the menu of his second restaurant with seafood, flown in fresh from both coasts. And if fresh oysters, seafood boils, fried po’ boys, steamed crabs and mussels, and chowders aren’t enough, the menu is garnished with non-seafood dishes inspired by the chef’s favorite childhood restaurant. The corn dogs, smoked brisket sandwiches, fried green tomatoes, and hush puppies earn particular praise. Decor in the restaurant matches the food in casual, yet polished sophistication. Weathered wood, white walls, and metal appointments create a neutral background that is enhanced by sea-glass colored Tolix chairs around high-gloss wood tables and stunning photos of fishermen hanging on walls.
