Bar Americain Review

Celeb chef Bobby Flay's largest Manhattan restaurant is the soaring Bar Americain. The 200-seat two-story space looks like a dining room on a luxury liner. This is not food for the faint-of-heart: Flay piles on the butter, cream, and endless varieties of bacon. Southern-inflected brasserie fare includes deviled eggs with smoked shrimp, chicken with hatch-green-chili spoon bread and black-pepper vinegar sauce, and duck confit flavored with a bourbon-based sauce and fig chutney. Slightly naughtier are the éclairs piped with whiskey-infused pastry cream and burnished with a burnt-sugar glaze. Brunch, featuring dishes like biscuits and cream gravy with sausage and scrambled eggs, is delicious.

    Bar Americain Review

    I've eaten here twice, once for brunch once for dinner and both times the food was really delicious. i would go again just for the homemade potato chips with warm blue cheese dipping sauce. Yum! I had lamb chops with a mustard bbq sauce that was also wonderful.
