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.
