The neighborhood surrounding medical campus is called the Central West End - thecwe.org. There are a variety of restaurants in the neighborhood, many within walking distance. These range from quick, inexpensive lunch options to more formal dining. An Applebee’s is directly across the street from the Center for Advanced Medicine and a Panera Bread café is across Forest Park Parkway. Many other selections are a short walk north on Euclid Avenue. The Information/Concierge Desks have brochures on this area and can assist you.
