Inside Scoop: Bacall's Family Steakhouse
Bacall's Family Steakhouse brings '40s glamour and big portion Jewish/Romanian fare to Times Square. Newly opened, the menu is inspired by the restaurant’s muse, starlet Lauren Bacall, and her Jewish-Romanian upbringing in New York City. Look for favorite starters like kreplach, chopped chicken liver, latkes, and matzoh balls. Family platters include house-smoked brisket, seared salmon, a Lower East Side veal chop, duck confit, and stuffed trout. You can get a pre-theatre selection of lighter fare or go all out with “The Show Stopper” (Betty’s Roumanian Steak Platter, stuffed cabbage, and roasted vegetables) or the dry-aged tomahawk for four pictured above. The hallmark of the bar program will be a premier Vodcã Bar. The Vodcã Blast offering will include bottles of top-shelf vodka served tableside encased in an ice block with a choice of mixers or shot glasses. Dani Luv, famed troubadour of the former Sammy’s Roumanian Steakhouse on the Lower East Side for over 20 years, will now be performing at Bacall’s. Look for laughs and sing-a-longs nightly starting at 7:45pm. The restaurant holds down a roomy space at 220 W. 44th St. and is open Thursdays to Sundays 4-11pm, brunch Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30am-3pm.
