Element Restaurant and Lounge

– St. Louis, Missouri –

Lafayette Square’s newest Jewel, Element, was designed by REMIGERDESIGN and is receiving rave reviews from the community and food-lovers alike. ‘Housed in the newly renovated City Hospital power plant building, Element drips with industrial-inspired luxe. Bartenders mix predinner craft cocktails at the third-floor bar, a loft space that looks straight out of Esquire. Rich leather couches and exposed brick warm the area, while large windows frame a postcard view of the city skyline. On the west side of the building is a magnificent outdoor terrace, appointed with chic furniture and strung with white lights. The vibe is carried through into the second-floor restaurant, where bamboo light fixtures and sleek tables surround the centerpiece of the dining room: the open kitchen. Unlike many places whose ‘open kitchens’ offer a mere one-sided peek, Element’s sits in the middle of the room, open on three sides. This gives the space a buzzing energy and makes every diner feel as though they’re seated at a chef’s table. I was blown away with just about every aspect of Element.’ -Cheryl Baehr, Riverfront Times
