Owner Nancy Law announced this week that two-year-old G-Ho spot SoWe would be shutting its doors for a quick rebranding as a "value-driven steakhouse" called The Strip Joint. (As you may recall, Eater took issue with the original name, but will decline to comment on the new one.)
The concept focuses on a few different cuts served steak-frites style that will set you back just 19 bucks at dinner (unless, for some reason, you want ten ounces of filet mignon, which goes for $27). Sauces and any sides beyond fries and salad will cost you a little extra and skew steakhouse-standard. There will also be weekend brunch, where the signature steak will run a few dollars cheaper, in addition to classic breakfast fare and lunchier options like a burger. If you can look past the menu's sporadic and clumsy innuendo, the prices, selection, and affordable wines all show promise for a solid neighborhood hang.
The Strip Joint will officially open its doors starting with brunch this Sunday, January 26.
