Top choice american in Midtown

This chic, bustling brasserie has an industrial-chic interior, sociable bar and well-executed grub. Much of the food is made from scratch, the seasonal menus a mix of nostalgic American and Italian inspiration (we're talking hot potato chips with blue cheese fondue, chicken pot pie with cheddar chive biscuit, and Sicilian baked eggs with artichokes, spinach and spicy tomato sauce).

Book ahead for weekend brunch or prepare to wait.
