Inside Scoop: Bacall's
Bacall’s brings 1940s New York and Hollywood glamour to Times Square. This beautiful soaring brasserie was inspired by Hollywood star Lauren Bacall, who used to work on 44th Street, handing out CUE magazines and visiting her agent on the block. The restaurant is dedicated to the arts and brings in the Backstage Players to entertain guests Wednesdays through Sundays. The menu features NYC specialties like pastrami egg rolls, potato latkes, classic cuts of prime meats, fresh seafood, a kids' menu, and NY cheesecake or 16-layer crepe cake for dessert. A special curated craft cocktail list and frozen bottles of vodka encased in ice blocks make for a memorable high-spirited evening. The restaurant holds down a roomy space at 220 W. 44th St. and is open Wednesdays to Sundays 4-11pm. Bottomless brunches—with a live salsa band that will teach you how to salsa—can be found on Sundays from 11am-3pm. For reservations call 212-944-2474.
