Iron Chef Bobby Flay brings his adventurous style of American nouveau cuisine to Bar Americain, located in midtown west. Like his flavors, the décor is bold with a wide-open dining room, diamond patterns repeated along the bar and floor, and large disk-shaped lights. Flay is known for his focus on regional dishes, and the restaurant delivers with entrees such as Gulf shrimp and grits and smoked chicken with hatch green chile spoonbread and black pepper vinegar sauce. The raw bar has selections ranging from crab-coconut and shrimp tomatillo to yellowtail poke with Hawaiian flavors.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
