Bar Americain

Posh, pricey and oh so delish. This tourist location packs them in for updated American classics in a beautiful deco like setting with an open kitchen and lots of comphy banguettes. I have eaten here many times for lunch and Saturday night the first time for din din and there was a din of noise in the packed joint. Of course when you taste the food it is all worth it. The bread basket of warm blueish corn bread rolls is yum and a nice little baguette roll. I ordered the lamb chops for $32.95 which were perfectly cooked medium with a lovely rub and reduction and accompanying corn pudding tart. We shared a sweet potato side which was layers of roasted sweet potatoes. The food was full of flavor, great thought has obviously been made to perfect the best of the genre. We skipped dessert that night, though on previous visits I have had dessert, though find it pales next to the savory. For the price point a complimentary cookie plate would be generous. Bathrooms are upscale.
