    Americana?

    Anyone been to the Americana? Any recommendations? We're going tonight for a small party, and I was thinking of going with the cheese ravioli. Business-casual, dressy-dressy?

    Went for weekend brunch a while back. I liked it. Same owner as Court Ave. Brewing Co. Seems pretty casual to me but again, it was brunch.

    Love Americana, great booze, great eats. Everytime we've been there - sober, drunk, hungover - has been an absolute treat.

    Cool casual - and treat yourself to the birthday cake.

    It is casual, but you wouldn't look out-of-place dressed up either.

    I absolutely recommend their brunch on the weekends. Sort of pricey, but well worth it especially if you like to drink while having brunch.

    Agreed on casual. Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf is amazing!

    I was going to rock heels and a dress, so I'm so glad you guys answered. Thanks so much.

    The menu looks really eclectic. Aiolis as far as the eye can see. :)

    I am on the other side of the fence, I find the food to be decent but due to the prices I usually don't recommend Americana. Nice atmosphere for the most part though...

    It's good to hear both sides! Any food in particular you would avoid?

    Great food. Had a rehearsal dinner there last year and was very impressed. Actually having the reception for my wedding next door. Great area.

    Re: Americana?

    We went there this summer and I was dressed in my business casual and felt about right. I wouldn't have wanted to have been in jeans and a t-shirt. Food was good. Drinks were good. Can't remember many of the particulars

    We had a friend's reception next door a couple years ago. It really worked out quite well

    My husband (who I'm totally getting the cake now, thanks to Tarbox) loves tuna filets. I may try to talk him into this.
