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.
