Food Network star Flay had experience running several restaurants before opening Bar Americain, a two-location (Connecticut and New York) restaurant concept that captures the spirit and aesthetic of French brasseries and bistros while showcasing American regional dishes. Geographically, the book casts a wide net, incorporating flavors and techniques from the South, Southwest, Midwest, and East and West coasts. Recipes like Spicy Tuna Tartare, Blackened Roasted Prime Rib, and Lobster Potato Salad emphasize both luxury and comfort. This book will appeal to Flay's fans and the meat-and-potatoes crowd who frequent steakhouses and business lunch spots.
