    Bars & Spirits

    Lambic is the most interesting beer style in the world. It's also the most controversial, surrounded by myths, hype and some of the finest examples of snobbery in the entire world of beer.

    Bars & Spirits

This means, for example, that the Philly Cheesesteak is served on an Amaroso roll from Philly and topped with Cheez Whiz. Authenticity as …

    Eats! American Grill also brings the craft beer and specialty cocktails.
