The Second Cut

For 14 years Bistro Le Steak has satisfied the tastes of the steak lovers of the Upper East Side but when owner Nicki Jakupi decided to open his second restaurant he chose to leave his corner bistro and venture into the throngs of midtown. Where once there was Bistro Deseret, there is now Bistro Le Steak Bar & Lounge (227 East 56 Street, NYC 212-207-8777.)

With an apropos opening on Bastille Day 2009 Bistro Le Steak Bar & Lounge offers the same great reasonably priced steaks and other specialty items that diners have come to love and trust at the original location. But this menu does not just stop and start at meat, there’s a bevy of items to choose from that allows diners many options, and different from its sister restaurant this location offers cocktails and a bar menu to attract the many midtown workers who definitely need to drink and flirt after work.

Start with the fabulous frog’s legs or shrimp cocktail,. Main courses offer a first rate calves’ liver and oh those steaks, fries and elegant desserts, especially the lemon tart.  Don’t miss the iced cappuccino. There’s an excellent wine list (at remarkably affordable prices) and smooth service as executed by the charming manager Frank, Idrizi.

Situated on a rare quiet midtown block the restaurant is a respite from other eateries in the neighborhood. The high ceilinged room is quite spacious and tables are spaced generously. This Bistro Le Steak is perfect for group dining with round tables able to accommodate large parties, and a private area to accommodate groups of up to 20. The low lit lounge and bar area are perfect for canoodling, and with doors
