Steak is an American institution which traces its roots back to the 19th century in New York and possibly there is no better place to sample American history in Bengaluru than this atmospheric place, Portland Steakhouse and Café. Their beef is exclusively sourced from affiliate ‘Abba Foods’ which comes with 50 years of reputation. From stir-fried pepper beef to the tender medallions to the rib eye, the steak at this place is a stunner. For the not-so ardent fans of steak, you can try out their greasy giant burgers like their Portland Beef or the Smokey Lamb Burger. Wrap up the American dine-out with New York style cheesecake or the signature Apple Pie!!!

Frank and Charles Menches from New York and Charlie Nagreen from Wisconsin, both claiming to be the creators of Burgers, served a version of the patty-on-a-bun at their respective local fairs.

The best American tale is told at this open-air dining destination, Stories which lays on table a plethora of American and Mexican dishes. The American Smokey Barbeque makes quite a bit of noise with variations like Jerk Jamaican and Spicy Chipotle.
