Sunset 44 has been a staple in St. Louis community for over 5 decades. Today, the bistro is a place known for good food and a friendly neighborhood setting. It’s not over-complicated, but quality food, made from scratch and served in an atmosphere where people know you. Sunset 44 features a variety of cuisines, based on the chef's hertitage and culinary experiences. While dining, each guest receives two types of bread, made daily from all organic whole wheat and flours--our loved lavosh with beer cheese and a dinner bread made from a sourdough starter that has been maintained for 35 years.
Sunset 44 has an extensive wine list with over 200 wines to choose from. We are known for the "Sunset Pour" (our 8 oz. glasses of wine).

In March of 1986, Bob Menendez and his wife Beverly bought Sunset 44, which already had been operating for 25 years, from his friend Pete Nicolaisen Jr., son of the original owner. Sunset 44 operated in Sunset Hills at the intersection of Watson and Lindbergh until August of 1993. Sunset 44 moved 2 miles North, and has now been a staple in Downtown Kirkwood for nearly 30 years.
