Our Concept


The vision for American Elm was born of owner Bob Reiter’s time living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The neighborhood’s vibrant and eclectic mix of artists and professionals, imports and old school neighborhood residents gave rise to a unique version of the American Bistro that had been a staple in the New York City food scene since the mid 1980s. What differentiated these restaurants was the level of service, technique and quality offered in a laid back environment that catered to all aspects of the diners neighborhood.

These experiences helped Reiter shape the ethos of American Elm; a hospitality focused, neighborhood bar and eatery serving elevated fare in an honest and inviting atmosphere. Our menu is rooted in the classics and our elevated casual service is rooted in the fundamental belief that every person who comes through the door is our most important guest.

And the name? What else could we have named this neighborhood hang other than for the namesake of the long time resident of the property ~ the American Elm tree over seeing this corner of West Highland and offering its gracious shade every warm evening here.
