CHARLOTTE – Steak 48 plans to open in mid-2020 at Apex SouthPark, a mixed-use development touting a live, work, play and worship concept.
The steakhouse combines world-class steaks with inventive and cravable dishes, such as Alaskan King Crab and Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese, or Crispy Shrimp Deviled Eggs.
Marc Lupino, Steak 48’s chief executive chef of over 20 years, prides himself in offering sustainable and fresh fish, as well as sourcing beef and ingredients from specific farms that meet their standards.
“Our local executive chef in Charlotte will play a personal role in delivering some local touches to our menu,” Lupino said. “Being a part of our community is part of everything we do at Steak 48.”
The restaurant will feature a fully exposed kitchen with floor-to-ceiling glass surrounded by dining on all three sides, immersing guests in the dining experience.
Steak 48 is owned and operated by brothers Jeffrey and Michael Mastro, their father Dennis Mastro and partner Scott Troilo, a group known for their unique and city-centric restaurants. The brand is also in Houston, Philadelphia and Chicago.
“We are excited for the opportunity to be a part of the spectacular development that is being created here at Apex SouthPark,” Jeff Mastro said. “My brother, father and I love Charlotte and are looking forward to being a part of the very special community that is so vibrant here in our new hometown.”
Developed by Childress Klein and Ascentris, Apex SouthPark includes more than 73,000 square feet of ground floor shops and restaurants, 345 residences; a new 750-seat, 68,000-square-foot church; and Charlotte’s first Hyatt Centric hotel.
Retail and dining spaces will be connected via a parking garage at the base of Element SouthPark, a luxury multifamily development, and will feature entrances off of Sharon Road and Morrison Boulevard.
“To have the Mastro family bring Steak 48 to Apex SouthPark is further evidence of Charlotte’s standing among the most desirable markets in the nation,” said Chris Thomas of Childress Klein. “Steak 48 will help us set the tone as it offers the SouthPark community a distinctive dining experience.”
