AMERICANA Restaurant and Lounge

AMERICANALOGOIn my consulting business, one sliver of what we do is to host A Lot of meetings and events. These meetings and events are most often all over the Midwest but sometimes even beyond. So, it is essential to know of great places to go. It’s not enough to “just have been there before” myself. No….. to take a client there….. I Really have to fall in love with the place.

As you can imagine, when you have to check out so many different kinds of places that are scattered all over because you intend to take from 1 to 1000 people there, it’s essential to have two lists in the office. The Best List and….. well….. it is what it is and….. it’s the Loser List. So….. Know….. our reviews and testimonials about places are not the notions or nods of a casual traveler, ours are Notes from being credible travelers.

When we first launched our site over two years ago, we posted a review of our very first dining experience at AMERICANA in Des Moines, IA. It was great. Since then I have hosted client meetings and events there. My clients have always had great things to say about AMERICANA too. And, when the clients rave….. That is when the place hits our list in the office for being among The Best. And those are the places we share our reviews or their news, recipes, tips and hints from.

So, for those of you who follow our posts and can easily get to Des Moines….. well, let’s get AMERICANA top of mind and either go back if you’ve been there before or go if you have never been. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and AMERICANA would be a great place to go.
