Nothing is as unique to St. Louis cuisine as its toasted ravioli. A New York Times article from the '80s credits a restaurant on The Hill, St. Louis’ historic Italian neighborhood, with the invention of this unique dish, which, the article says, happened by accident when ravioli was accidentally dropped into a frier.
Today, nearly every bar and Americana-style restaurant in St. Louis serves toasted ravioli accompanied by hearty marinara sauce.
There is too much toasted ravioli served out there for us at Patch to sample it all — although we’d love to try.
So we are asking you, our readers, to help us find the place that has the hands-down best toasted ravioli in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
