Spring Fun at the Moonrise

The weather is finally turning a corner and we can all breathe a sigh of relief — spring is here!

And with the warmer weather comes several fun events at the Moonrise — whether you’re staying at our boutique hotel or simply stopping by for happy hour.

Monday, April 1 marks two very special occasions at the Moonrise:

  • The first is our delicious Tasting Dinner to celebrate our new menu (details below).
  • The second is the official opening of our Rooftop Terrace Bar for the season (weather permitting)! We can’t wait to spend our evenings on the rooftop, which offers gorgeous panoramic views of St. Louis.

Three-Course Tasting Dinner

Join us on Monday, April 1 to help launch Eclipse’s new spring/summer menu and to celebrate the opening of our rooftop! Each $45 ticket includes:

  • A welcome drink
  • Hors d’oeuvres
  • Three-course meal featuring some of the dishes below
  • Two Angel’s Envy whiskey drinks (one bourbon and one rye)
  • One drink ticket redeemable at the Rooftop Terrace Bar for a nightcap after your meal

For more details and to purchase tickets, visit the Eventbrite page.

New Menu at Eclipse

A fresh season means fresh, delicious food at Eclipse Restaurant. You’ll find locally sourced ingredients, innovative flavor combinations, and satisfying meals all around.

Here are a few of the dishes we’re excited about:

Citrus Salad

Baby green oak. Grapefruit. Orange. Feta. Radish. Avocado. Mint. Lemon poppy seed vinaigrette. It’s fresh, citrusy, and perfect for spring.

Thai Curry Wings

Coconut milk. Red curry. Cilantro. They’re zingy, juicy, saucy and excellent as an appetizer or meal.

Three-Cheese Mac and Cheese

Fontina. Gruyere. Roasted jalapeno. Bacon. Parmesan crumble. It’s rich, cheesy and has a kick from the jalapenos.

Chorizo Mussels

Mexican chorizo. Peppers. Ancho lime butter. Cilantro. Grilled bread. Not your standard mussels – these are citrusy with a hint of spice from the chorizo and peppers.

Brown Butter Pork Chop

* This dish won Head Chef Cameron Settle the title of “Best Chef in St. Louis”!

Carrot ginger puree. Cauliflower pilaf rice. Roasted tomato. Bourbon glaze. If you don’t think pork can be fancy, juicy and decadent, think again. This dish has it all.

Not Ya Momma’s Grilled Cheese

Smoked Gouda. Creamy brie. Fig jam. Braised pork belly. Caramelized onion. No Kraft singles in this grilled cheese. It’s salty and creamy from the blend of cheeses, has a hint of sweetness from the fig jam and caramelized onions, and packs an extra punch of flavor and texture with the braised pork belly.

We love life at the Moonrise year-round, but St. Louis in the spring holds a special place in our hearts. Perhaps you need a little bit of rest and relaxation over spring break — our boutique hotel rooms and luxury amenities are just the ticket. Or maybe you’re looking for that perfect happy hour spot with drink specials and an amazing view to boot – we’ve got you covered on the rooftop.

However you like to have springtime fun, you’ll find it at the Moonrise! Take a look at our delicious menus and book your stay today.
