EATS! American Grill culls its Americana-infused recipes from all across the country, creating a menu that ranges from cheesesteaks that pay homage to Philadelphia to marinated cuts of salmon that honor the Pacific Northwest. Patrons kick off their meals with New York buffalo wings, fried green tomatoes, or soups such as the 1880 Texas Chili, which evokes the 1800s with its old-fashioned spices rather than its refusal to believe in the Internet. Main dishes range from burgers and sandwiches to more upscale fare of crab cakes and rib-eye steaks. Visitors lounging at tables or seated at the full bar can tune in to the eatery’s 10 high-definition TVs, which glow with local teams’ games or entertainment for the younger set, such as Nickelodeon shows or stock reports about the market rate of Hot Wheels.
