Bar Americain: Best Midtown Lunch Spot

Midtown tends to be a wasteland of either tourist-centric dives, overpriced steakhouses, or chains.

Bobby Flay's Bar Americain is the perfect spot for lunch, business or personal, and was a highlight this week for me. The chopped salad doesn't compare to La Scala's in L.A. but it's a good New York stand-in.
