new American Bar & Restaurant - Chur

Saw this billboard driving home yesterday. Took a walk and made a photo for you folks here on the English Forum. I haven't been yet but I want to check it out. Anyone heard of it or been there yet?

There is one just west of Zürich near Birmensdorf. It is very good.

The spare ribs and the burgers are really good.

The one in Birmensdorf has a brunch buffet on Sunday morning that is very
good.

Re: new American Bar & Restaurant - Chur

Oh dear. "Fettucine Al Capone"? "Cadillac Nachos"? Ostrich fajitas?

I can see someone will have to make the jaunt though and report back, and since we're closer to Chur than most of the rest o' yinz...

(On the bright side, they've got spare ribs, nachos and cheesecake on the menu. If any two of the three are really good it'll be worth the trip.)


Has anyone been to the sister restaurant in St. Gallen?

If I ever get a Sunday off, we might join you for the brunch.

Re: new American Bar & Restaurant - Chur

Hey sounds great! I've never really met anyone from EF yet since most don't live near Chur. Maybe I should make a get together at this new restaurant. Also thanks for those who posted reviews about other locations. Sounds really promising Mmmm Cheesecake?

Re: new American Bar & Restaurant - Chur

Dont bother wasting your money or time at this place.. if youre looking for authentic american food, go to america, or come over and Ill cook you dinner. I would hate for anyone else to give this sham of a restaurant more money. 35 francs for two pieces of catfish that are each about the size of your thumb. 'American' food may not be fine dining anyway, but the hamburger I had there made me sick.. and not at all 'authentic' although maybe as close as you can get here.. just go to McDonalds!!

Re: new American Bar & Restaurant - Chur

Sorry to hear about your crappy experience there. I wanted to go there when my dad visited but phoned them up and was rudely told they don't do breakfast... oh well, their loss. I can make my own awesome bacon, eggs and home fries for next to nothing

When I was there, I saw them turn away at least 3 partys, apparently because they didnt have reservations, even though the place was 80% empty.

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode like that?
