Steakhouse chain Steak 48 lands on Broad Street this spring with a 12,000-square-foot location opening in the newly renovated Atlantic building at Broad and Spruce. The swank restaurant is slated to start serving rib eyes and seafood towers in April.

The Atlantic, originally an office building erected in the 1920s, is now an upscale apartment building designed by the same architect who did its neighbor, the Kimmel Center. Its first floor has long housed a restaurant, including steakhouses Ruth’s Chris and Ted’s Montana Grill.

Steak 48 continues that meaty tradition with a menu of filet mignon, bone-in rib eye, New York strip, and whole Colorado rack of lamb. Keeping with the steakhouse theme, there are raw bar items, wedge salads, au gratin potatoes, and sides like mac and cheese and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. The list of seafood entrees includes Chilean sea bass and lobster tails.

Steaks are priced from $40 to $70, depending on cut and size. There’s also American Wagyu, for market price.

The restaurant is broken up into separate spaces, including a mezzanine, to make it feel cozier than its square footage and 450 seats would imply.

Owners Jeffrey and Michael Mastro, who are brothers, their father Dennis Mastro, and partner Scott Trolio are looking to hire 300 people for the Philly location. Steak 48 is also in Chicago and Houston, and opening in Charlotte.
