You need to eat this braised short rib from Noto Italian Restaurant in St. Peters

Pizza may be the obvious choice at Noto Italian Restaurant, but the incredibly tender braised short rib should not be missed. The beef is marinated overnight in honey, salt, garlic and thyme and then braised with seasonal fruits. After resting, the juices are reduced with red wine to make a sweet, sticky sauce. The melt-in-your-mouth meat sits atop creamy polenta and is served alongside grilled broccolini; it’s all drizzled with a savory-sweet gremolata. Chopped parsley gives a bright finish.
