And if you’re in doubt, well then, go and try it for yourselves.

American Cuisine on the Upper West Side

Posted by on Oct 27, 2012 in Bars & Nightlife, Burgers, Diners, Food & Drink, Pizza, Seafood

American food has gotten a major face-lift in the past thirty years, with restaurants nation-wide increasingly updating their homey regional recipes.  Here on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, we have a pretty awesome collection of restaurants that celebrate America, from old-time favorites to successful experiments.

This occurred to me as I enjoyed a recent snack at Marcus Samuelsson’s new Alice Tully Hall Cafe, American Table. The eclectic menu includes classic flavors like cheddar, biscuits, and tomato soup, but also has the unexpected fusion combinations Samuelsson is famous for, including a liver, poached chicken and pickled cabbage sandwich that seemed to be a Swedish incarnation of a Banh Mi, and was delicious. We also tried the Doro Wat Tacos, open faced soft flour tacos with piles of pulled chicken stewed in Ethiopian spices, topped with chopped egg and sour cream and served with a lime — the flavors were somehow African and Mexican at once, and went together beautifully (especially with plenty of the sriracha found on every table).
