The American Sector Restaurant Review: The National World War II Museum hosts massive exhibitions and rotating shows, and one is likely to need a nice place to relax and have a drink or a small repast. Enter The American Sector, a cavernous, contemporary spot with servers sometimes attired in World War II garb. The bar takes up the entire center of the room, surrounded by walls adorned with oversize vintage photos of America during World War II. The food is hard to categorize, but there is something for everybody, from the crab boil fritters to an oyster BLT and a plate of slow-cooked lamb ribs. For dessert, travel back to the 1940s and have a Whoopie Pie, or stay current with bananas Foster bread pudding. Offering a respectable wine selection and some very creative cocktails, the bar is most popular at the daily happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. In mild weather, grab a seat on the patio (heated during cooler months).
