Award-winning Caesar salad, wings and chili grace the menu at The American House Hotel, whose chef weaves French, Italian and American influences into an eclectic culinary tapestry. The eatery’s signature appetizer, roasted, horseradish-stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon, entices diners alongside hearty Black Angus chili. Diverse entrees include the charred 14-ounce T-Bone, pecan-encrusted mahi mahi, and a 12-ounce rib eye steak with jumbo lump crabmeat. Wines by the bottle or glass round out the dinner options. Saturday night diners can return with another rotation of the clock for breakfast served on the first Sunday of every month, which showcases morning classics such as stuffed french toast and eggs benedict. Diners feast in a Victorian-era dining room, whose tin ceilings anchor chandeliers that evoke a time when everyone wore wooden clogs.
