I think we can all agree that Bon Appetit magazine knows a thing or two about food. So when they named Nixta one of the 10 Best New Restaurants in the U.S. for 2017, you know it's a worth a visit. Nixta takes on elevated modern Mexican cuisine, delivering classics (like flautas and pork belly tacos) like you've never had them before, plus dishes you've flat out never heard of.
Vibrantly colored and beautifully designed. It'll teleport you out of St. Louis and into Mexico City.
Pepita Guacamole, Tlayuda (think of a Mexican pizza, kind of), fancy tacos
Who says Mexican food can't be fine dining worthy? Nixta looks to restaurants like the world-famous Pujol and seeks to break that thought. If you want to see what elevated Mexican cuisine can be, a visit to Nixta is a necessity. From 10pm to midnight Thursday-Saturday, the restaurant transforms itself into Bar Limon.
