COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED NICK + STEF’S STEAKHOUSE
Following a “down to the studs” renovation, Nick and Stef’s Steakhouse, the flagship steakhouse from celebrated Chef and Founder of Patina Restaurant Group, Joachim Splichal, has reopened, been redesigned, and has a new Executive Chef, Andreas Roller, who is presenting a sensational new menu and dining experience.
With a chic new decor incorporating classic steakhouse style with contemporary designs, the 16-year old newly reopened Nick and Stef’s celebrates its long standing tradition of offering cured meat selections with an emphasis on a newly added 28-day onsite aging of premium cuts. Comprehensive raw bar and seafood options, a wine program consisting of over 500 labels including selections from Splichal’s personally selected vintages, a mixology program rooted in mid-century cocktails and unparalleled service for which the brand is known, are at the core of the new iteration of Nick + Stef’s Steakhouse.
The Cuisine –
Adhering to the founding principles of Nick + Stef’s Steakhouse, the menu by Executive Chef Andreas Roller remains focused on celebrating top tier ingredients through traditional steakhouse fare with a contemporary flair. As to be expected, meat is the focal point of both the lunch and dinner menu. USDA prime onsite 28-day dry aged selections in addition to showstopper options such as a Tomahawk Rib Chop or Prime Fiorentine T-Bone are carefully grilled over oak and mesquite.
Other large scale menu items, available for pre-order, include a Whole Roasted Suckling Pig, Dry-‐‑Aged Prime Rib, Whole Roasted Leg of Colorado Lamb and
Loup de Mer. For individual dining, other new meat experiences include Black Angus Beef, imported and domestic Wagyu, along with a varied selection of grassfed cuts. Burgers and sandwiches are also showcased during lunch service. The menu also features smaller bites during lunch or dinner and an extensive list of returning classic sides alongside new innovative vegetable small plates.
The new menu includes an expanded look at seafood, inclusive of entrees, a raw bar with $3 oysters, seafood cocktails,
and shellfish platters. The new seafood program is focused on fresh catch fish selections.
Rounding out the menu for lunch and dinner, a dessert course highlights items that evoke a sense of comfort and contentment. Warm Buttermilk Cinnamon Doughnuts, Rum Raisin Chocolate Soufflé Cake, Oatmeal Cookie, and a large selection of domestic cheeses are just a few of the choices.
