Billing itself as “the largest restaurant in St. Louis,” it’s hard to argue with BlackFinn American Grille. The nearly 10,000 square foot restaurant that occupies the entire northern corner of The Galleria is segmented into three distinct areas, each one created to be its own unique environment.

The Saloon is self-explanatory, with it’s backlit island bar and drop down projection screens. The Dining Room is the more formal dining area, with The Grille Room acting as a type of business-casual middle ground between the two (The Grille Room is also equipped with free Wi-Fi and electrical outlets at every booth). The outdoor seating area is currently being built out, along with an underground level that will also be 10,000 square feet and act as an event space for the restaurant. The only thing that comes close to matching the Brobdingnagian size of BlackFinn is its 100-plus item menu, which covers everything from toasted ravioli to a surf or turf mac-n-cheese.

Doors to the Brentwood restaurant will officially open tomorrow. In the meantime, we dropped by today for a sneak peek. See pictures at left.
