Joe St. Ana, owner of Crush Wine Bar and Diversion Tapas Restaurant, has opened a new restaurant and bar in the River Market. Bill Street serves typical pub grub — burgers, sandwiches, wings, salads — and plans to host live music in the long vacant two-story space at 614 President Clinton Ave., next to the Clinton Museum Store. Currently, the restaurant and bar occupies the below-street-level space. St. Ana said last week that he plans to use the upper floor for special parties and events. Hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to closing Monday through Saturday. Because of what St. Ana said was a service provider problem, the phone isn't yet working.
Palette Catering's Jeremy and Jacquelyn Pittman have opened a retail space, Gourmet To Go, where they're selling a variety of prepared items. The store is located at 600 N.
