My wife and I got a chance to try out a restaurant we had never visited before, Truffles in St. Louis (technically, a suburb called Ladue, but the address is St. Louis). As you might have guessed, I took this opportunity to try out a Margarita.
I’m not sure why we had never been to Truffles. It is a bit of a hidden gem in St. Louis. One of the really unique things about Truffles is that they have a full butcher shop attached to the restaurant. So if you liked the meat you had for dinner at Truffles, you can stop next door and bring some home!
The meal we had that night at Truffles was excellent. We will definitely be going back again. The Margarita I had that night was good, but not great. It was made with Avion Silver tequila and was nicely balanced, but it lacked enough fresh lime flavor for my taste. I suspect a mix was used but I can’t be sure. So I would rate the Margarita that night just a 7. However, given the caliber of the restaurant, I feel confident that if I had requested a particular Margarita, they would have made to order. So the next time we go to Truffles, I will ask a few more questions and and see if the bartender can work some magic.
