Perhaps the best way to deal with extreme patriotism is to make fun of it, which is what this kitschy, every-day-is-the-Fourth-of-July restaurant in the East Village is doing. Opened during the heat of the 2016 presidential election, 'Merica brings all the stereotypes that make our country so damn ridiculed to life with a menu featuring greasy burgers, artery-clogging grilled cheeses, and a fried chicken dinner called The WMD, aka weapon of mass...deliciousness. The ultra-thematic spot is complete with red, white, and blue decor and posters of John Wayne, plus events like weekly debates.
