With live entertainment offered most nights and a classy, elegant atmosphere, it's no wonder Jimmy's on the Park remains one of Clayton's more popular dining destinations.

Roxane is an eclectic American bistro that is worth a try during Clayton Restaurant Week.

Follow up with pretzel chicken (served with garlic and chive mashed potatoes) and a gooey butter brownie.

222 S. Bemiston Ave.

Remy's Kitchen and Wine Bar offers a wide variety of food with a Mediterranean flair. Stop here during Clayton Restaurant Week for a taste of the exotic. For your three-course dinner, we recommend you start with Remy's hummus. Paired with flat bread and feta cheese, this house specialty is sure to please. Follow up with bronzed mahi topped with shrimp, and finish with Remy's house-made seasonal sorbet.

Just a few blocks away from Remy's Kitchen and Wine bar is Tani Sushi Bistro. Swing by after a visit to Remy's, or spend your entire evening here. With light and healthy fare, Tani Sushi Bistro is a perfect spot to try for those with dietary restrictions. Start your three-course meal off with edamame. Follow it up with the Josh Brown Roll—this sushi creation features avocado, crab, octopus and spicy tuna with ponzu and eel sauce. End your meal on a sweet note with the Godiva chocolate cheesecake.

No matter where you decide to go, you are sure to find something that satisfies your appetite. Support a local  business (or two!) during Clayton Restaurant Week, running from Jan. 24 through Jan. 30.
