Steakhouse style


January 31, 2021

Steak 48 opened with a bang in Apex SouthPark, the new mixed-use development on Sharon Road, with a five-day preview event that raised $46,000 for five local charities. The upscale steakhouse joins Steak 48 locations in Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia, and the owners spared no expense in the new venture, investing more than $9 million in the buildout. The 400-seat restaurant is a showstopper, with an upbeat, contemporary vibe and several distinct dining areas. For a unique experience, reserve one of the booths in the back with floor-to-ceiling views of the immaculate glass-enclosed kitchen.

In addition to prime steaks, fresh seafood, including a raw bar, is flown in daily. Service is paramount: Quiet but attentive staff members anticipate your every need, creating a dining experience that will make you feel like royalty. For starters, don’t miss the chicken-fried lobster tails or crispy shrimp tossed in a sweet Thai chili sauce with garlic aioli. Custom-cut steaks are cooked in an 1,800-degree broiler, delivered to your table on a scorching hot plate with a gentle word of caution. Maryland-style lump crab cakes are available as an entrée or, if you’re feeling particularly indulgent, “Oscar” style on top of your steak, with asparagus and bearnaise sauce.

Cocktails include well-crafted versions of the classics, and extensive whiskey, scotch and tequila lists are available. Oenophiles will appreciate the wine selection, housed in Steak 48’s 6,000-bottle vault.
