Known in the food world as a low-key excellent restaurant arbitrator, Showtime show Billions premiered its third season on Sunday night and highlighted three well-regarded New York City restaurants. Wo Hop, Veselka, and Del Posto all made the cut this go-round.
Billions chronicles the life of hedge fund titan Bobby Axelrod (played by Damian Lewis), who a U.S. attorney (Paul Giamatti) is trying to take down. Axelrod’s rich antics take him to many restaurants around NYC, and various outlets, from Eater to Esquire to Thrillist, have praised the dining choices. Past locations haveincluded Momofuku Ko and Ssäm Bar, Katz’s, Sushi Nakazawa, Keens, Crif Dogs, Peking Duck House, Peter Luger, and more.

New York, in particular, has a fantastic dining scene. That is why NYC dining scene makes some memorable appearances in Billions, from some of its special occasion restaurants to yummy hole-in-the-walls, to cozy neighborhood joints, dining landmarks and take-out places. Here is our Billions dining guide and a thank you to the show for showcasing the dining capital of the world in the best way possible. We describe each restaurant, provide picture of the scene as a refresher, a link to restaurant’s website, as well as its Yelp review when available. Bon Appetite!
Episode 1: The Pilot
The one with our first meeting of Bobby:
Bruno’s pizza joint, Capparello’s was Axe’s go-to place when he was a kid and he is still a regular. Bruno seems to be a father figure to Axe. The secret? Pizza is made with San Marzano tomatoes!
