Meet the Most Exciting Steakhouse Opening in September

Herbs & Rye’s sister restaurant just about ready to debut


Despite some delays, Nectaly Mendoza’s Cleaver — Butchered Meats, Seafood & Classic Cocktails is just about ready to open on the eastside, taking over the former home of Ruth’s Chris, Kelly’s Prime Steak & Seafood, and Toscano Italian Steakhouse at The Park at 3900 retail and office center on Paradise Road.

Fans of Herbs & Rye, Mendoza’s nine-year-old cocktail lounge and steakhouse on the westside, can expect the roles to be reversed at Cleaver. Mendoza plans more of a classic American steakhouse with pastas, meats, and seafood paired with a smaller cocktail menu and wine-forward drinks menu.

Massive cuts of meat include an XXL rib-eye steak at 60 ounces that can feed three to five or the 120-ounce Cleaver rib-eye steak that feed five to eight.

Diners can order a lobster tail, a surf and turf with a filet mignon, or a tomahawk rib-eye steak with a whole lobster for the very hungry.

He tells Thirsty Magazine that a collection of butters and sauces accompany steaks, which can be topped with a blue cheese crust, balsamic, peppercorn, a spice rub, or a chili rub. Chimichurri
, brandy peppercorn
, creamy horseradish
, red wine glaze
, and béarnaise sauces can come with dishes, while butters include bacon maple, foie gras, ancho chili lime, herb, rosemary port, black garlic, and tarragon lemon.

Cleaver expects to open at 5 p.m. on Sept. 9.
