Holidays are just around the corner and you know what that means, right?!? Good Eats!!! The food adventure is about to get a little more exciting and oh so delicious, because LYD is taking it to the streets-- the New York streets!!! Experience the Big Apple during the most wonderful time of the year. NYC is filled with decorations, twinkling lights a mile long, Christmas Day parade with Mickey and friends, and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Do not miss out on ringing in the New Year at Times Square. Watch the oh so famous ball drop on midnight to light up the luminous 2012!. It is definitely a sight to see. Besides all the spectacular scenery and shops, New York City offers a plethora of restaurants. After all, walking in the cold burns a ridiculous amount of calories. Remember there is no reason to eat and walk...we’re are on vacation!! Skip the food stands and take a seat at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain, one of the most renown restaurants in NYC.

LYD stopped for Sunday brunch; ready to chow down on some good eats, beautiful atmosphere, and some NYC fun! LYD started with an mouthwatering basket of breads- sourdough, wheat, sesame seed, onion, blueberry crumble...you name it, we had it! Alongside that, an order of extra thick, crispy bacon was brought to the table. That's right! Fresh, sizzling bacon made to order came straight from the kitchen to our table. Definitely large enough to share with everyone at the table, but don't hesitate to order another if that one is gobbled up! LYD recognizes that bacon is not a complete meal, we are sorry to say this, but eaters are in luck as Bar American serves up some of the best dishes in NYC!
Try the smoked Chicken Pot Pie because it ain't no ordinary chicken pie. The sweet potato biscuit is stuffed with chunks of chicken, celery, onions, and carrots smothered in a creamy chicken broth. Yummy! Definitely hits the spot, especially in the NYC cold weather, what could be better to warm the soul! LYD recommends the poached egg and ham. Bobby Flay adds spice and flavor to the everyday poached egg by adding a savory, peppy cajun hollandaise sauce. One of the most amazing eggs and ham you will ever eat. Eating all this savory, scrumptious, tasty food will get your mouth salivating for drinks. Bar Americain offers a surplus of cocktails, wines, and beers. So, do not forget to wash down each meal with either a classy mimosa or bellini! For those who are not old enough to drink, Bar Americain can take care of you with their assortment coffees- iced or hot, cappuccinos, and espressos. No matter the occasion, Bar Americain will satisfy that hungry palate.
Have a great Christmas and blessed New Year!!
