NYC's Omni Berkshire Place opens steakhouse restaurant

(Omni Berkshire Place)

Bob’s Steak & Chop House is now open at the Omni Berkshire Place in the heart of midtown Manhattan. This is the 14th location for Bob’s with 13 other restaurants located in Texas, Arizona, California, Tennessee and Florida. 

Housed in the former Fireside space, Bob’s Steak & Chop House is a traditional American, prime steakhouse. Bob’s offers every premium cut of steak – including the highly sought after prime filet. Bob’s beef has been sourced from the same Chicago meat supplier for 23 years. Along with prime beef, other entrees include rack of lamb, roasted duck, veal chop and pork chop. An array of seafood dishes round out the entrée offerings.

The beverage program features big American reds, a selection of “old-world” favorites and several wines from New York wineries. The wines are showcased in an elegant temperature-controlled wine room that holds 2,000 bottles and is visible from the dining room. The cocktail menu features signature libations such as the Dirty Bob with Grey Goose vodka, stuffed house-made bleu cheese olives and olive juice; as well as classics with a twist such as the Mulled Manhattan with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Cointreau, grape juice and orange bitters, and the Texas Mule with Deep Eddy Ruby Red vodka, Tajin hot sauce, ginger beer and lemon. 

The 210-seat restaurant features dining areas, a 40-seat bar and lounge area and two private dining rooms. Bob’s encompasses an old-school steakhouse vibe with slate-grey custom millwork and dark Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, while the elegant glass wine wall and globe-like light fixtures add a touch of modern sophistication. Vintage photography of New York City adorn the walls, and cognac-leather chairs and tables topped with crisp white linen complete the aesthetic. 

Maurizio Chiovaro has been appointed as general manager, bringing over 20 years of experience in leading culinary operations. He joins the Bob’s team from his most recent position as general manager at BLT Steak. Executive Sous Chef Stratos Georgedakis, previously of Quality Meats, helms the kitchen.
