More steak has arrived in Uptown via STK Steakhouse, from One Group Hospitality, Inc., which has opened at 2000 McKinney Ave., in the former Perry's Steakhouse, which relocated to 2100 Olive St. in 2020.
According to a release, it's a company-owned location and their second restaurant opening of the year.
They promise "Vibe Dining" at its finest, with premium dry-aged steak, world-famous cocktails, and music from renowned DJs.
How about a Texas cliche, via a quote from One Group president-CEO Emanuel “Manny” Hilario:
“They say everything is bigger in Texas, and we cannot wait to make STK’s signature Vibe Dining experience larger than life for residents and visitors alike in Dallas,” Hilario says. "STK offers our guests the ultimate dining experience, making every occasion celebrated in our restaurants a memorable one. We know STK will be a great addition to Dallas’ already bustling restaurant scene and are proud to open our doors to share our unmatched culinary offerings with The Lone Star State.”
Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, it's pricey, with steaks beginning at $55 for a 6-ounce filet and topping out at $157 for a 34-ounce tomahawk. That doesn't count toppings, which are separate: $5 for a peppercorn crust, $6 for a "zingy rub," $39 for a lobster tail, and $42 for crab Oscar.
Appetizers start at $22 for an iceberg wedge salad up to $37 for a crabcake. Entrees start at $47 for chicken with peas & beans to $73 for lamb with carrots & kale.
This puts it in the same price range as Nusr-Et, the also-very-pricey steakhouse a few blocks away from Nusret Gökçe, AKA Salt Bae.
For high-end steak aficionados, STK has three Japanese Wagyu options: A5 strip for $35 per ounce, A5 filet for $44 per ounce, and A5 spinalis which you can get in a 6-ounce version for $99.
Other menu items include:
- oysters on the shell, a dozen for $54
- jalapeño shrimp cocktail, $31
- mushroom & truffle tagliatelle with shaved black truffle, $52
Sides are an amusingly steep $18 and include Yukon gold mashed potatoes, tater tots, Parmesan truffle fries, corn pudding, creamed spinach, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and mushrooms with bacon & cheese. Waiter, I'll have an order of the $18 tater tots, please.
Mac & cheese comes in three versions: plain, with bacon for $21, or with lobster for $31.
Cocktails include the Not Your Daddy’s Old Fashioned, Cucumber Stiletto, and Spiced Watermelon, as well as an award-winning wine list featuring varietals from around the world.
Other STK locations are in Atlanta, Bellevue, Chicago, Denver, Doha, Dubai, Ibiza, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Los Cabos, Miami, Milan, Nashville, New York City, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, San Juan, Scottsdale, and Toronto.
One Group Hospitality also owns Kona Grill, which has a location in Dallas at NorthPark Center. ONE Group also manages and operates restaurants and food & beverage services within high-end hotels and casinos currently operating 13 venues in the U.S.
