    Relatively expensive for what you get (location + Bobby Flay) but food and service is very well executed. Won't blow your mind in any direction. Good for a business lunch. Great, bright room with well-spaced tables.

      I've been there for business lunches otherwise wouldn't go out of my way or pay for a meal there.

        The one time we were there we liked it very much. We sat at the bar and had the trio of seafood cocktails and a few other dishes. All were very good. The only reason we haven't been back is location; we're more downtown types.

          Bar Americain is a good choice if you're with non-adventurous diners. The menu is pretty good and very accessible.
