Since 1993, this Belle Epoque restaurant has been a consistent favorite: From the service to the cooking, there's seldom a misstep. Always busy, it attracts locals and visitors with waterfront views and hearty classics. James Beard Award-winning chef Nancy Oakes specializes in New American dishes such as wood-oven-roasted Berkshire pork chop with sweet potatoes and aprium in wild ginger and brown sugar.
An incredible variety of culinary styles fall into the “American” category, from classic burgers-and-brunch spots to upscale eateries serving New American and California cuisine. Some of the city’s best American restaurants draw on a variety of influences, including French at Gary Danko and Eastern European and Japanese at Bar Tartine. Of course, the farm-to-table movement continues to thrive—at spots like Greens and Zuni Café, to name a few.
