Came here for dinner on the premise of getting some high class American classics and was a little disappointed at the distinctly european but with a few token American-style dishes on the menu.
My starter was a "Southern style lobster fritter" which sounded great but ended up being 3 enormous balls of mostly breadcrumbs and so over flavoured that I struggled to detect any actual lobster. Wouldn't have complained but the starter was over £11 on its own!
Next up was the main course of "Midwestern meatloaf, sweet cured bacon and truffle mash". A plate appeared with enough food to feed at least 2 people. Now normally I wouldn't complain at this but the meatloaf was wrapped in undercooked and fatty bacon, with the loaf itself being pretty dry and flavour less. The exact opposite of southern style in my opinion. To be fair, the (again ginormous!) pile of mash was creamy and tasty but I struggled to detect any truffle flavours. Disappointing and at nearly £18 well over priced.
I was also amazed to find that not a single American beer was on offer - surely a place with the name "Missouri Angel" would be able to sell something other than the standard Peroni, Heineken etc?!
In conclusion, I was very disappointed having eaten an amazingly tasty and cheap meal at the much better and just round the corner Bodeans the previous night. If you want delicious, authentic and well priced American food don't come here, go to Bodeans!!
