Thoughts on New American Cuisine

faithiepie | Mar 25, 2009 12:46 PM

I'm looking into cooking some "new american" dishes at home and was wondering if anyone has thoughts on what defines this relatively new trend in American restaurants / dining in NYC. I understand a basic definition of the cuisine as new twists on Old World food using classical techniques, with an emphasis on the use of quality products / local produce / support of farmer's markets. To me, that sort of implies an anything goes mentality to this genre of food...any ideas or thoughts on what other elements / qualities define new american / american nouveau?
