Connecticut: Bobby Flay opens Bar Americain at Mohegan Sun

Bar Americain celebrates America’s diverse culinary heritage, inspired by Bobby’s extensive travels throughout the country. His decidedly American menu is mirrored by the energetic fast pace of the time-honored European brasserie.
This is Bobby’s 10th restaurant in operation and his second Bar Americain; the first opened in New York City in March of 2005, receiving rave reviews including two-stars from The New York Times. Today, Bar Americain continues to be an essential mainstay in Manhattan’s impressive restaurant landscape.
“I’m thrilled to introduce Bar Americain to Mohegan Sun,” said Bobby. “Here too I will celebrate the vast culinary traditions found in the US while also featuring dishes that showcase the wealth of ingredients and traditions of New England and, given our location, that of the Native American culture.”
With a menu that ranges from spiced-up Shrimp-Tomatillo, Crab-Coconut and Lobster-Avocado Shellfish Cocktails to ‘gotta have’ sides like Hot Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Sauce, Creamed Kale and Brooklyn Hash Browns, American regional fare never sounded, looked and tasted so good. Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Black Pepper Biscuits and Brookdale Farm’s Honey Sauce and Kentucky Ham, Black Mission Figs, and Pecan Salad with Ricotta and a Molasses-Mustard Dressing show Bobby’s true commitment to the foods – and producers – of this nation. Fulton Fish Market Cioppino served with traditional Sour Dough Toast is Bobby’s hometown version of the San Francisco favorite. Creole-inspired Duck with Dirty Wild Rice & Pecans pays homage to the great food city New Orleans. And brasserie s tandards - Shellfish Platters, Mussels & Fries Americain with a Green Chile Broth as well as a Vidalia Onion Soup with a Parker House Crouton and Blistered Vermont Cheddar Cheese - are anything but standard when prepared Bobby Flay style. Bobby’s affinity for the classics continues with his dessert menu with seasonal favorites such as Blackberry Souffle and Deep Dish Chocolate Cream Pie.
The cocktail program reflects the restaurant’s commitment to all things American including an extensive list of Bourbons, a favored spirit of Bobby’s. Designed by partner Laurence Kretchmer, the rotating menu of classics includes such standards as the Bronx Cocktail, Americano Highball, and Dark & Stormy. In the one move away from all things American, the wine list will feature a vast selection from around the world.
Rockwell Group marries the original design of Bar Americain with the energetic pace of Mohegan Sun, infusing even more movement, boldness and craftsmanship to the re-envisioned American brasserie. Some design elements will remain in the 276-seat restaurant including the restaurant's custom glass, wood and metal wine towers, the curved “Hollywood” banquettes and a large exposed Raw Bar, highlighting a bounty of seafood from New England and beyond.

Bar Americain's familiar zinc-top bar will warmly welcome both restaurant and hotel guests, as they enter the restaurant via the colorful marble tile floor.
Bar Americain is Bobby’s second venture at Mohegan Sun; he opened his fourth Bobby’s Burger Palace (BBP) on July 1, 2009 during the re-opening of the casino’s new Winter Entrance. At BBP, Bobby presents an array of burgers inspired by America’s regional flavors and traditions as well as his love for the grill.
