The 1899 Bar and Grill opened up this week in Flagstaff at the northern end of the Northern Arizona University campus in the historic North Union building.
The restaurant, a joint venture of the NAU Foundation and Sodexo, has a modern feel with an open feeling, high ceilings, simple decoration and lots of tile work on walls, floors and columns. As you enter you'll see a beautiful oversized fireplace with copper surround in the waiting area. There's also a small bar area. The restaurant has a good view of the goings on in the kitchen thanks to the open design.
The menu (see below for the lunch and dinner menus) is upscale with steakhouse and southwestern touches but there are plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options.
On this trip, we tried the Tilapia Pepita with pumpkin seeds served with wild rice and steamed broccoli. It is supposed to be topped with pico de gallo and jalepenos, but the staff forgot to include that. It was a quality dish though bland with the absence of those flavorful toppings. However, I'd still order this dish again. It was nicely prepared otherwise and still was a filling lunch. We also tried out the BBQ Burger. It's topped with their house made sauce and crispy onion ringlets (which they also forgot initially to include but the waitress brought those over) and served with fries, jicima slaw or fresh fruit salad. We got the fries. They were good but not standout.
Other dishes on the lunch menu include pork cutlet, lobster stuffed mushrooms, heirloom tomato salad, and portobello sandwich. (See below this story for images of the full lunch and dinner menus!)

1899 is open for lunch (from 11a-4pm) and dinner (4pm to 9pm) daily. Cash and credit are both accepted as are NAU's Jacks Debit Express and Dining Dollars.

We ate here the other day and the food was great!!! I particularly loved the pesto butter they bring to the table with the bread basket and the cheddar mashed potatoes surrounded by crispy potato.

Heard it was expensive and not to order the steak since it had so seasoning on it.

Another friend tried the new restaurant and was not really impressed.

We had lunch the other day and the bowl of soup didn't even come with bread for $5.95. Everyone else seemed to like their food pretty well (although I heard complaints that the jicama slaw was too spicy); the sandwiches are big and the fries (both sweet potato and seasoned waffle fries) were yummy.
