For a person who is known as Rand McNally’s daughter, I’m not sure why it’s difficult for me to grasp locations in between 44 and 55 in south city. But I’m always confused, especially when I get on Gravois from the city. Our recent Dining Divas outing took me past Uncle Bills and lots of churches to the neighborhood of Princeton Heights. Who knew it even existed? But I’m glad I found it. Sitting on the corner of Gravois and Quincy Street is the Quincy Street Bistro, our Divas choice for the month.
