Revealed back in April, but waiting for the still serving Todai restaurant to close, Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse is finally on its way to the Harmon Avenue side of the Miracle Mile Shops. Known for its Japanese buffet, Todai had been in business since 2001.
Located steps from the newly debuted Buffalo Wild Wings, Dallas-based Day Star Restaurant Group runs both Texas Land & Cattle and the Lone Star Steakhouse chain and operates 26 Texas Land restaurants in Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, New Mexico and North Carolina.
The concept is "inspired by Texas ranch house dining, with large fireplaces and a warm, comfortable, inviting atmosphere," plus "generous portions" and a lunch and dinner menus.
For Las Vegas, the the 9,560-square-foot restaurant proposes some contrasting design elements, with decorative stone veneer around the entrance, a 54-foot tall metal roof over the entrance, decorative reclaimed wood siding, metal cable supports and painted metal canopies.
Two patios will be built, one to the west at 231 square feet and the eastern outside dining area will be 498 square feet, each with a five-foot-high glass partition.
Now that Todai has shuttered, the construction can begin, but an announced timetable for completion has not been released.
