Pearl Café

8416 N. Lindbergh Boulevard, Florissant; 314-831-3701

From a storefront in the heart of north county, Pearl Café consistently offers the area’s best Thai food, but that’s only part of the story. Sure, Scott Truong knows how to cook amazing pad Thai and yellow curries, but the innovative chef/owner is always looking for ways to reimagine Thai cuisine through dishes like the “Phorito” or his forthcoming “Thai Burger.” Add in the extensive beer selection and 150 different types of whiskey and you’ll see why Pearl Café is so much more than your usual Thai spot.
