Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pub fare and libations at Flatiron's American Bar & Grill on Tenderfoot Hill Street. Flatiron's American Bar & Grill surrounds an archipelago of steaks, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more with a diverse ocean of 75 bottled beers and wines, and 25 more brews by the glass and on tap. The menu teems with ingenious pub fare, from Doctor B's chicken sandwich, a haven for pulled chicken, arugula, soft dill havarti, basil pesto, and roasted red peppers ($8), to the mini pork tacos, in whose fried wonton wrappers two great culinary cultures meet among queso fresco, pickled onion, and pico de gallo ($8). Shrimp, pesto, roasted tomatoes, and mozzarella coexist peacefully atop the pesto-shrimp pizza ($8), one of a variety of the flavorful dough-wheels rolling out of the Flatiron's kitchen.
The pub opens early for Sunday brunch (served until 3 p.m.), ideal for easing out of a weekend of relaxation or easing into a tough week in the fast-paced world of competitive eating, drinking, and socializing. Flatiron’s broad open-air patio affords a fine beer-watching vantage point for bold outdoors types during the warmer months, though the dining room and bar feature floor-to-ceiling windows as well.
OpenTable reviewers give Flatiron's American Bar & Grill an average of 3.9 stars and name it a Diners' Choice Winner. Seventy-nine percent of 24 Urbanspooners like the restaurant, and nearly 700 Facebookers are fans.
Flatiron's American Bar and Grill
Meat is the primary item on the menu at Flatiron's American Bar and Grill. Blank-angus steak comes in three cuts—the signature Flatiron, the rib eye, and the New York strip—and shares a plate with a choice of veggies and potato. Orders of chicken wings, whether coated in spicy buffalo sauce or honey-chipotle glaze, weigh in at one pound, making for a hefty appetizer or a delicious paperweight. Although it's technically meat-free, the three-cheese mac-n-cheese comes with a “robust bread-crumb crown” and benefits from the addition of shredded spiced chicken, according to food critic Nathaniel Glen of The Gazette. On a daily basis, the restaurant’s chefs inspect each meat shipment to ensure top-notch quality and freshness.
