Replacing the two-story Zeffirino Ristorante, the floor plans indicate the lower level will still be dominated by the existing ornate bar, easy to spot through wide open windows and hosting enough seats for 25 customers under the antique lighting.
Downstairs, space will be created for an additional 36 diners to order the return of the steakhouse's 24-ounce rib-eye steak and a bone-in New York cut, plus new menu items of an American wagyu beef, a tomahawk steak charred table-side, and rotisserie-roasted chicken, veal, and prime rib.
Upstairs, the restaurant has added a second, 18-seat Art Deco bar, surrounded by a 39-seat lounge decorated with leather tufted booths and Lincoln chairs on the edge of an open space with views of the floor below.
The remaining dining area is spread out over the upper level and four separate private rooms, creating a total of 437 potential customers across an impressive 14,000 square feet.
Future opening hours and an exact debut date have yet to be announced.
