The American Sector Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & décor: If you’re going to open a restaurant in The National WWII Museum in New Orleans, the menu better find a nice balance of Southern fare and a bit of nostalgia. 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.

Likes: "Not’cha Mamas Pot Roast"
Dislikes: Uneven service.

Food & Drinks: Food is hard to categorize, but you’ll find everything from spaghetti and meatballs to chicken and biscuits, and chicken potpie for comfort food lovers. In a salute to old New Orleans, the appetizers feature Louisiana crawfish fritters with andouille and rémoulade. For dessert, travel back to the 1940s and have the Granny Smith apple pie or double chocolate Creole cream cheesecake. 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.
