Speaking of brunch, DBTH happened to be brunching this weekend at the American, one of our favorite new spots, and saw some changes. Don't worry, these are good changes. Besides the big menu, solid food and short table waits, the American has come through with an expanded dining room. No longer are those booths in front the only seating option. There are several four tops available in the back, plus a bonus outdoor patio where one can enjoy some summer heat. Or a cigarette. If you enjoy that sort of thing. Apparently, it's been that way for two weeks. Next step: A Bloody Mary license. Hopefully.
