The Cecil is an upscale American restaurant that shares a kitchen with a famous Jazz bar (Minton’s Playhouse). Even though the menu reads old-school (steaks, some good clams casino, caesar salad), the restaurant is sleek, with low turquoise velvet booths and colorful paintings on the walls. The specialty here is steak, and there are approximately ten different cuts on the menu. Also - If you just want to meet someone for a martini, there’s a pretty big bar area that feels distinct from the dining room space and often has live piano music.
