A Brief History of the Famous Tenderloin Room

The Tenderloin Room inside the Chase Hotel complex, at Kingshighway and Lindell in the Central West End has a grand history of being “the place” for such stars as Frank Sinatra in his day and George Clooney in his, this grand lady just keeps on keeping on. Today, the management has passed from Tommy Karagiannis to his son and daughter-in-law Dino and Jules Karagiannis. As they celebrate their 25th anniversary they continue to bring a classic, yet fresh dining experience every time. The “T-Room” has retained the look and feel of those oh so elegant restaurants of a bygone era – plush and comfortable without being “clubby”. The dining rooms (two down and one up a short flight of stairs) say: “…come and stay a while…”. And why not? With food this good it’s not hard to stay and eat your heart out.”

The Tenderloin Room is a St. Louis steakhouse legend serves gourmet cuisine while producing sensual aromas and the ambiance of romance, business and pleasure. With regal style and grace and the richest wood carved and polished to shiny finish – the intricate interior design is a work of art. One visit to The Tenderloin Room endows memories for a lifetime!

Our classic Pepperloin a la Tenderloin is seared to mouthwatering perfection with our famous sauce. For the adventurous diner with a large appetite we proudly present our Cowboy Ribeye, sure to satisfy like no other. Remember, steak remains the specialty, but entrees such as rack of lamb, stuffed filet, and veal chops offer spectacular alternatives to the signature beef.
