Treat yourself to the Milk Punch, or Sazerac for the bold.
Try the Key Lime Pie - Deconstructed!
Not kid friendly at all. Food was tasty, but pricey @ $150 for 2 adults/2 kids. Had 3 beers total and 2 desserts. Would not accommodate kid request for grilled cheese.
Get the Allagash!
All about the beignet.
The clam chowder is possibly the best I have ever had. It was beautifully arranged too!
Pickled oysters are a very tiny portion. The fried oyster dish is much more substantial.
Eisenhower stew is great. Finish your meal with desert and chicory coffee
Bitches Say B+. The dishes were small but flavorful, the service was attentive and knowledgeable, and we all feel a whole lot smarter after having eaten there.
great food, atmosphere and service. BUT not the destination for hungry families sight seeing. Portions on the small side for hungry teens...and dads!
Bf took me for bday dinner, got tasting menu and was impressed with everything. Favs: peanut soup, hush puppies, bison steak, shrimp with grits. Expensive but worth it for special occasions, so happy!
Try the jambalaya- it's awesome. Made for two. The third floor can be chilly- keep your coat.
Eating at America Eats Tavern is a mini history lesson, as chef Jose Andres worked with the Foundation for National Archives to find and serve recipes from America's history.
Short rib entree is awesome! Deserts were great!
2 tables sitting next to us had been charged too much and asked to have their bills edited.... Odd/shady!
Try the Grog - - strong but good!
The hush puppies are so very good! A guy at the table next to me said that he was going to come back to try them, based just on the look on my face when I bit into one.
The gazpacho with lobster is divine. The fried chicken appetizer is also fantastic (pair it with the mushroom catsup).
I recommend that you get lots of starters rather than main courses. Entrees are good but everything else is amazing.
I find this place's prices to be on the high side. I was definitely misled with "tavern" in the restaurant's name.
Grilled Cheese is full of flavor (and grease)! An awesome twist on the comfort food classic.
Drinks are great! Food is hit and miss. Fried chicken, Saratoga chips and hushpuppies.
We had peanut soup, gazpacho, and the bison steak for two, very tasty. The steak was generously portioned, though the soup portion was small. Good selection of American microbrews. Very cool setting.
For dessert try the New York Cheesecake. Normally I don't like cheesecake, but it's Andrés's reimagining of the American classic. Very light.
Great service, food & concept! Try the grilled butter oysters & anything w/corn. The key lime pie is also quite special
Must-gave eats: Buffalo Wings, Crabcakes and Jambalaya! Must-have drink: Moscow Mule
Small, but very delicious plates!
Unfortunately mediocre. There is a reason these classic dishes are no longer served. Service was excellent ad expected, but menu was extremely disappointing.
Moscow mule is amazing!
Don't miss the hush puppies with corn butter! (and stop by to say hi to Trevor at the bar - try a Southside if you dig gin!)
