I’ve been to American Sector quite a few times, but this day in particular, “The Chef” and I visited the The National WWII Museum in New Orleans and American Sector is just around the corner! It has a modernized old diner feel, which is perfect for an afternoon bite after exploring the museum. We were there for happy hour so we got a few bites off the menu as well a few main entrees…
Happy Hour: BBQ Sliders. Pulled Pork BBQ. Fried Onion Strings.
Meat Pie. Ground Beef. Trinity. Spicy Mayo.
Excuse the blurry photo..I just wanted it in my mouth already!
Notice the flaky dough..Love it! Meat pie…basically an empanada and you know I feel about empanadas!
5 Spiced Braised Pork Belly Ramen. Noodles. Bok Choy.
Smoked Sea Scallops. Baby beets. Market Greens. Cane Syrup.
Overall, it was a great mid-day stop! Great small bites, however, I was slightly disappointed by the size of the scallop in the salad. The ramen was a little too deep and dark in broth flavor for my taste. My favorites had to be the Pork Belly sliders and the empanadas (of course!). There’s something about small bites that tickles my tastes buds and the hominess of the dish didn’t hurt!
I would definitely recommend visiting for lunch or dinner as the main dishes are pretty good. The American Sector is very kid friendly and have a good selection of some tasty-looking ice cream shakes.
