The American Sector Restaurant Review

: Creating the ultimate twenty-first-century museum eatery inside The National World War II Museum, chef John Besh has composed a menu that aligns squarely with the venue’s theme, offering dishes that were popular before many people visiting the place were born. Consider the tomato soup with a corned beef on rye or a short rib Sloppy Joe. Jonesing for chicken and dumplings, or meatloaf or shrimp Creole? This is your place. A decent wine list, which includes about a dozen selections by the glass, and good local beers are available --- a couple are locally made American Sector exclusives. The very up-to-date bar occupies the entire center of the place, and best of all, you can order an old-fashioned milk shake or a banana split.
