Catch Steak, a model new concept steak house from the group that dreamed up Catch Seafood and Tenjune, is coming this fall to the Meatpacking District, Side Dish has realized.
Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum have lined up celebrated chef Michael Vignola to run the current.
“We will be combining classic steakhouse motifs with a menu and style that is lighter and brighter to create a unique, more approachable steakhouse experience,” Vignola tells Side Dish, together with that the menu may focus “heavily” on seafood, vegetable and “globally influenced” signature sharable plates.
Catch Steak is coming to the La Sirena space, which closed on Dec. 31 as the first casualty in Mario Batali’s empire which fell following quite a few sexual misconduct allegations made in direction of him.
The 15,000 square-foot indoor/outside space on the Maritime Hotel at 88 Ninth Ave. will keep 350 people.
Vignola made a popularity for himself at Strip House, was firm govt chef at BR Guest Hospitality sooner than changing into a member of Catch Hospitality Group, the place he works with chef John Beatty, the group’s culinary director.
Vignola purchased his start at Le Bernardin and via the years labored with cooks Marcus Samuelson, David Bouley, Rocco DiSpirito, David Walzog and Gabriel Kreuther.
