Jovanis Bourgoub's new steakhouse, Chop, is set to open tomorrow (actually today, 7/16) for dinner in the Shops at Roosevelt Collection.
The upscale, 2,300-square-foot, 99-seat restaurant, which also will open within the next two weeks for lunch and weekend brunch, aims to appeal to both shoppers and residents of the area with a varied menu that includes six burgers, five salads, four seafood dishes and three pastas. But its calling card is grilled meats, including a $29 14-ounce double bone-in Berkshire pork chop, a $39 rack of lamb and seven cuts of steak ranging from a $19 fried steak to a swashbuckling $64 40-ounce porterhouse.This is a bit of a milestone moment for Roosevelt Collection as it's the first real restaurant of significance to open in the complex. As we wrote about last week, getting one to open has been a challenge.
We're curious to see how this restaurant fares. Bourgoub obviously has had some success running restaurants (this is his fifth), so that's a good sign.
However, the location feels tough to get to and won't benefit from a highly visible spot. On the flip side, there are numerous businesses and the popular ICON movie theater that could help them have steady business. Guess we will see.
Best of luck to them!
