801 Fish: Clayton Restaurant Week


Last night I enjoyed 801 Fish as a part of Clayton Restaurant Week, it was my first time at this restaurant (though I blogged about it opening a few months ago and had been eager to try it.) 801 Fish is the sister restaurant of 801 Chophouse across the street. Both of these restaurants are owned by the 801 Restaurant Group, based out of Des Moines, Iowa. The space is sophisticated and unique, with plenty of open space. It is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions, business entertainment, or a night out with friends to enjoy fresh fish.

Did you know that all the fish and seafood is brought in daily. When the fish reaches your plate just know that it was in the water a mere 36 hours ago. I enjoyed the oysters- both grilled and raw as well as a red snapper entree that was served Creole style with grits and shrimp. It. Was. DELICIOUS.

Clayton Restaurant Week is going on through January 29th.

Clayton Home Sold and a 5 Star Review


I was able to assist a lovely family with buying this fabulous home in Clayton. We were dealing with a multiple contract situation, but I was able to negotiate on behalf of my clients to make sure their contract was accepted. Below is the Zillow review as seen here.

 11/27/2016 – MRKAES2016

Ted helped us secure a desirable home in a neighborhood that had a very tight housing market. Ted gave us priceless advice on how to bid for the house when in a multiple bid situation. He was always responsive when we needed advice. Ted is passionate about residential real estate. With his  excellent understanding of his buyers, he helped us steer clear of properties that were unsuitable for our needs. Ted’s low-key, understated manner belies a keen and forceful command of his trade. It’s no wonder he is at the top of his game in St. Louis on both the buying and selling side. I’d never hesitate to recommend Ted to either a buyer or a seller of St. Louis real estate.
