the 54th Street Grill & Bar is finally completed and will be opening on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 5201 St. Hwy. 121 in The Colony.

54th Street is a restaurant chain founded in Kansas City, MO by Thomas E. Norsworthy. The owner envisioned a place that would appeal to both dining and bar customers but also offer the quality food and drinks that exceed national chain competitors.The result is an eclectic, retro style atmosphere that accommodates both a lively bar crowd and consistently crowded dining room, translating into a great experience for all types of patrons.

To top it off, the majority of the food is made from scratch daily. The restaurant’s motto is, “Great food starts with high quality meats and ingredients, fresh produce and meals prepared from scratch.” But don’t worry; despite its upscale architecture and “Made from Scratch Cooking,” 54th Street maintains its casual dining prices. Some even refer to the concept as “Casual Dining Done Right!”

The 54th Street Grill restaurants are comfortable and relaxed with a bit of a retro feel. You’ll feel right at home while browsing the amazing range of menu choices that always keep diners coming back for more. Why…well, because it’s like that certain potato chip jingle, ‘you can’t eat just one.’ Once you try one or two or three of their entrees, you’re already checking your cellphone calendar for the next available dinner slot that’s open. One of the goals of 54th Street, has been to improve upon and upgrade their facilities over time in order to differentiate from their competitors. As a result, both the interior and exterior of Five-Four has evolved into an upscale casual atmosphere while maintaining casual dining prices. Specifically, Tom Norsworthy worked with professionals to create a more unique look that built upon the original concept. Together, they have incorporated a mixture of interior and exterior upgrades.

As soon as you enter into the restaurant, you’ll immediately notice that the interior decorator spared no expense or imagination for that matter, on trying to find one, of just about every possible cool thing-a-ma-jig to hang from the ceiling and walls. There are motorcycles, planes, boats, race cars, giant beer bottles, vintage advertisement signs, snow sleds and a plethora of other ‘ceiling-hanging’ memorabilia, that will surely put a crick in your neck if you keep peering upwardly trying to look at all of the ‘ I want this in my man-cave’ stuff, but the wife will kick me out if I even think about it.
