Take your pick between crab cakes, lobster roll sliders, or truffle fries, to name a few. These starters get you ready for the main course. 


Is a St. Louis eatery truly complete without barbecue? Order Cobalt Smoke & Sea‘s burnt ends with their special BBQ sauce or their short ribs, and you’re in for a treat. There’s also chicken, lamb shanks, duck fat burgers (you read that right!), and New York Strip steak. Plus, you can upgrade any of these entrees with chicken or a seafood favorite like shrimp, scallops, salmon, or crab cakes. 


Seafood in St. Louis doesn’t have to be a rarity, especially not at Cobalt Smoke & Sea.

Or maybe order their Cioppino, which is a fan favorite that includes mussels, scallops, salmon, sea bass, and shrimp cooked in an Italian-style tomato and saffron broth. These are just a couple of their delicious seafood options.
