While there are numerous fine dining establishments up and down Historic Main St. in Saint Charles, there hasn’t been any new and exciting restaurants to open in quite some time. Along comes Prasino. Located in the new development, The Streets of St. Charles, just south of Highway 70 on 5th Street, they are positioned to attract quite a crowd. Upon entering Prasino, you will immediately notice the new modern ambience, welcoming you to try something new. Prasino means “green” in Greek, so it is no surprise that this is one of the most eco-friendly restaurants in the St. Louis area. From the restored barn wood decor, to the bar stools made from recycled seatbelts, Prasino has a very chic and modern feel.
With one look at the menu, you will recognize this is no ordinary cuisine. Every menu item is prepared from only the highest quality, farm-to-table ingredients, sourced directly from local farms and ranches. Including hormone/antibiotic-free meats, sustainable seafood and organic produce combine to create our naturally appealing Contemporary American menu.
Prasino’s farm-to-table initiative extends to the “farm-to-bar” offerings. Their selections are uncommon, but all share an organic approach in their production. You won’t find the “usual suspects” on this menu. Many of their wines are purchased from small, family-owned wineries, which practice sustainability along with stunning craftsmanship. They have sought out an intriguing variety of artisanal beers and offer spirit labels not seen elsewhere in the Chicago area. The fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables used in our cocktails are purchased locally, whenever possible.
