    RIBS!!!!

    Ok...this is simple...the ribs were just outstanding!!!! I’m from West Virginia and we have our style of ribs and I own much of the enthusiasm behind them but... Here I am in New York City in a very sophisticated setting eating some of the best “fall off the bone” ribs I have ever had. Didn’t think it would happen here and didn't know Bobby had this real touch! These are things I will remember and I actually crave right now. Thanks for a memory!!!!

    This just works

    I was in the city for a few days during the holiday season. I am from Chicago and eat out often...but not like this! I came with some fellow business partners and they assured me a great meal. I went along and sure enough it was explosive!!! We loved the service and the atmosphere but most of all, the food!!! I could not believe how busy the place was and had little faith in receiving a decent meal but I was revived immediately upon presentation. I am not saying we had a problem free meal as one person had to send a plate back for a bit more heat. However, when it came back to the table it looked as if it were a new plate of food altogether...and that shows a restaurant that cares!!! The meal was great, the service was clean and efficient and I will come back here when I am in the city but I am hoping Mr. Flay will consider one of these gems in Chicago!!!

    Disappointing

    I was looking forward to eating at Bar Americain for weeks. I had my meal picked out before I even sat down. While my spice rubbed strip steak was cooked perfectly medium rare, I could hardly tell there was any seasoning on it at all. My brother in law's filet was also underseasoned and for some reason was cut in half which made for a poor presentation. My sister ordered the special of the day which was blackened sea scallops. Her scallops were extremely fishy which is a sign of mishandled or not fresh fish. I was hoping the fries americain would save the day, but they were soggy and looked like the kind you would buy in your grocer's freezer. In addition, I wasn't even sure if the cauliflower goat cheese gratin was in fact goat cheese. I'm extremely disappointed in Bobby Flay.

    Flaming Disappointment

    My party of three dined at Bar Americain last Friday in celebration of my birthday. While the conversation was sublime the dinner fell far short of our expectations. Our two starters, were a disaster. The cheese and bacon pizza was greasy and unbearably salty. The confetti duck was almost bitter with too much seasoning and perched on a bland corn cake. Each of us ordered a different course to share, the lamb chops, the duck and the red snapper. The chops were tasty but the duck was a bit dry and the snapper was bland. Can this be Bobby Flay? Did we go on an off night? Thankfully I had a gift certificate and did not have to pay for the meal, which made everything go down just a little bit easier.

    Our Favorite

    Whenever we are down in the city for an event, we always come to Bar Amercain. From the well versed bartenders and the long bourbon menu, to the fine tastes that come out of the kitchen, even though expensive, we hit it everytime! Dinner for two (two apps, two entrees, two desserts, and two drinks each) with tip is usually around $150.

    Great food excellent service

    I decided to treat my two children (Ages 8 and 10) who are foodies in traing ( my 8yo rather eat sweetbreads than chicken fingers!) , to this restraurant. My family is planning a holiday in Vail and most of the establishments have reservations at only offer adult menu at $$$$$ prices. We dined at Bar Americain on 11/21 for lunch. We did not have reservations. I had expectations that the hostess was going to look at me as if I had two heads when she saw me walk in with these two.. She did not! She suggested that a seat near the open kitchen may be more enjoyable for kids. I agreed, We were seated right next to the kitchen and my son was memorized about how many people work there and how the kitchen was set up. Service: Excellent. The waiter catered to our needs. Unsure about what type of wine I wanted brought me to tastings of savigion blanc fo me to decide. Water was always filled. Service was not pretentious. Apps: Son(8) order The Shrimp tomatillo appetizer (5 large shrimp and the tamattillo sauce). From the one bite that I had it was excellent. daughter (10) ordered the spicy tuna tartar. It was very good however, I would perfered a bit more spice, had a diffcult time finding any kick in the tuna. Entrees : Son ordered the Wednesday Special - Spiced Filet Migion sandwhich. served with french fries and roasted red pepper sauce. Excellent. Daughter ordered the Bacon, onion and garlic pizza. Very good. I had the butterfish with the brussel sprout salad. Excellent. As much as I liked the fish I loved the brussel sprout salad and could have had a larger portion of that to fill me up. No room for dessert, I did enjoy a cup of very stong coffee. As a wonderful suprise, we saw Bobby Flay cooking back there. I was not expecting him to be there since he owns numerous restautants. Unlike the previous post, I rather have a celebrity chef cooking my food rather than being outside entertaining guest. If I wanted entertainment I would go to Mideval Times (no, I would not really go there --but you get what I am saying) Lunch with 2 glasses of wine, 2 sodas, 2 appitizers, 3 entrees and coffee == $160 including tip.

    bobby flay

    i came here before i went to go see wicked (for the fourth time.) the wild salmon was excellent, but the dessert that i had, strawberry creme brulee was not good. it had a fake chemical taste to it. i actually saw bobby flay when i went, but he was trying very hard to stay away from all of the people that were getting up to meet him. to an extent i can understand that, but if he's there, in his own restaurant, he should expect people to want to meet him.
