Bar Americain [CT]

I hosted a belated birthday dinner last night for a lovely lady and her husband at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain at Mohegan Sun Casino.

Everything was wonderful. The breads were varied and the spicy cornbread was great. The Onion Soup was declared the best ever, six clams from the raw bar were so very very fresh and my Lobster Avocado Cocktail was uniquely delicious. A glass of Rose Cava from Catalunya was a great accompaniment.

Entrées continued to please. The Red Snapper Florida Style was perfect on a bed of spinach and black bean purée; the Ribeye was tender beyond compare and cooked to order at medium well and the added goat cheese and green  onion Smashed Potatoes were very good. My Porterhouse Lamb Chops served medium rare with Sweet Potato Gratin along with the Fig and Pinot Chutney were meaty, juicy and tender.

We ended with the Pumpkin Bread Pudding with pumpkin cream and caramel sauce, famous from the cooking 'throwdown' between the Pioneer Woman and Bobby Flay, and the Green Apple Tart with Maple Walnut ice cream [a taste straight out of Paris!] and my decaf Latte.

blognote: Bobby Flay was not in the house but was expected for New Year's Eve. Had he been there we would have complimented him profusely.
