  Bill's Food & Drink

57 East 54th Street (Between Madison & Park Avenues)  (212) 518 2727 /

Full of charm and old world ambience replete with live piano nightly in the background. Recently expanded their live music policy.
Pricey, good food. Great for a spcial occasion. Welcoming staff and a wine list that gets good reviews.

John Delucie’s remake of the old Bill’s Gay Nineties townhouse space is a rather pricey new midtown restaurant. The legendary old saloon is basically intact, complete with sports photos on the walls and piano player tinkling away in a corner of the room. The vaulted upstairs dining room has been decorated in the style of the owner's popular downtown establishment, the Lion (with deer heads, an ancient ship’s wheel, and random portraits of old tycoons.) The menu has an assortment of  olde plutocrat specialties (Osetra caviar, Delmonico steak, bacon chops), etc. Mixed to good reviews on the food.
