American

A thirteen-star American flag hangs outside of Fort Defiance, a nod to the Revolutionary War landmark of the same name and the elevated American fare you can expect at this quaint neighborhood cafe and restaurant: deviled eggs are topped with fried capers, country-style liver pate is served with bacon-onion jam and grilled skirt steak gets a side of rainbow shard and roasted potatoes. But don’t get too comfortable with the familiar ambiance: Every Thurs the bar menu and aesthetics are transformed by The Sunken Harbor Club, a celebration of Polynesian food and drink that looks and feels like a tiki whirlwind (toothpick umbrellas and all).
