The bar and grill stresses casual American fare with some international accents. A Reuben spring roll, with corned beef and 'kraut, vies with oysters Rockefeller, chicken wings with hummus, and pulled-pork sliders with sesame-seared tuna.

Yes, there are burgers, as well as tacos; ground-beef shepherd's pie plus lobster mac-and-cheese; tiramisu and Black Forest cake in addition to coconut cream pie and "American pie," or apple pie with a cinnamon-crumb crust.

Main courses: $12 to $23. Appetizers: $6 to $12. Burgers, sandwiches, tacos and salads, $7 to $14.

American Social is open every day from 11:30 a.m. to 4 a.m., with a late-night menu starting at midnight.
